Workin' on my Fitness.

Remember how I told you I was going to try and make healthy choices this summer?  Well, I am still trying to do that, kind of.

I am not the kind of person who deprives herself of tasty treats.  I am the opposite of that person.  Even if I'm trying to lose weight, or get in better shape, I will not give up eating a piece of chocolate, if I want it.  Which brings me to this:
Did you know that sugar free Jello is actually not disgusting?  Because I had no clue.  But, in reality, it's totally good.

***
A few weeks ago, I decided to do a cleanse.  I've heard people say stuff like"Cleanses are stupid."  "Your body doesn't need to be cleansed." Etc. They're probably right.  But guess what?  I didn't even care what these people said.  I wanted to try one.  So I did.  

I haven't been shy about admitting that Mista T. and I have gained a few lbs. since getting married.  From December to May I gained about eight.  Not too alarming, but not something I was happy about.  This little cleanse sucked out all of that fat, and made me feel real good inside.  

If you want more information on what I did, let me know.  It wasn't even hard.  

***
I hate that working out and eating healthfully has been so associated with weight loss in the media.  Because, guess what?  I don't even care if I lose any more weight.  If someone walked up to me today, and said that they think I need to lose weight, yeah, I'd probably be sad.  But I'd also tell them they are stupid--because I'm mostly happy with my body.  I just want to feel good inside.  I want to take good care of myself.  I want to be the best Chelsea I can be.  Am I full of cliches?  Totally.  But sometimes cliches are awesome.

***
Tonight Mista T. and I are going to hit up the ol' gym.  Togeza.  We are going to be fit, and fabulous.  And it might even be a little bit fun.
We even walk there, sometimes.  How cool are we?  Way cool.

It's really cool--because on most days, you can eat as much as you want. Let me know how it goes, if you guys end up doing it!
