How To Train Your Humans
This is my life, every day. Listening to humans trying to order coffee is the WORST.
So. This blog is supposed to be about getting healthy. I finally feel healthy again. This time last year, I weighed at least ten pounds less than I do now. I wasn’t eating, wasn’t exercising. I spent most of my time in bed or at work, depressed out of my mind. I hated my body, hated myself, no matter how skinny I got.
The past few months have been hard. I got physically healthy again but my brain was still off. I wanted to regress into starvation & guilt & depression so badly. I started avoiding certain foods and started becoming obsessive again.
Then, one day, I decided to just be happy. To not let things affect me anymore, to see the good. I eat what I want now. I run 3-6 times a week. I can run 7 minute miles and I feel invincible. I am 150 pounds of muscle & meat (& booty, chicka yeah) & I love every piece of it. I’m so happy to finally be in a good place again, to be feeling free & alive & confident & healthy again. It’s been a long road to get here & it’s not over but at least I’m getting somewhere good.
Please be healthy, please be confident with who you are & what you are. Be free.

not wanting to date someone because you aren’t physically attracted to them doesn’t make you an asshole
wanting to sit at home watching TV instead of hanging out with people doesn’t make you an asshole
cutting off a friendship that was not satisfying to you doesn’t make you an asshole
