Dogs over Blogs

I think this every time I watch Morning Joe on MSNBC and Mika Brzezinski jumps on her fitness/diet high horse. It’s infuriating. I’ve seen Mika Brzezinski on the news for decades. To the best of my knowledge she’s always been blonde, fit and beautiful. I can’t deal with someone…

I don’t totally agree with this, but I know to some extent it’s true for me as well. Like the other day my landlord looked like I was emaciated (not even close!) and asked if I was sick. I totally took it as a compliment. Not the sick part, but the emaciated. The lifelong desire to be normal and skinny is painful so it’s still satisfying to the 16 year old in my head. And all those mean skinny bitches along the way can suck it. In reality, I am very healthy and not skinny but it feels good to have those old demons be satisfied. But now I would much rather be strong.

But it’s also why I look down on/get frustrated with people who don’t fight hard enough. Just don’t give up, figure it out. Work harder. Fight harder. It’s why I ended up starting distance running last year. I knew it had to be something huge to change me, that I had to push myself and now I am not only pretty happy physically (comparatively) I am so much happier mentally knowing I can kick ass and I kicked my own to get here.
