Okay niece Ava, this is a tricky one. You come from a family that has always been pretty healthy, none of us are overly obese, we don’t eat McDonalds every day 3x a day, we get plenty of physical activity in one way or another. I think you have good genes to be pretty healthy, however, I want you to know a few things.
- It all starts when you are younger. Your mom, dad, grandparents and myself will make sure that you are healthy. We won’t withhold ice cream or cookies from you, but you will not be allowed to eat that for breakfast, lunch and dinner (you can do that when you are older, like I did)
- I am hoping that you will get your dads athletic ability and play some kind of sport so you will be physically active throughout your life and learn that it REALLY is a great thing.
- If you come work on the farm and ranch often you will get a ton of physical activity, pounding posts, hauling hay, or chasing cows. You can skip your daily workouts when on the Farm.
- In College- HAVE FUN! If you don’t want to go workout, the glorious part of college is you don’t have to go workout. Aunt Lisa got a little burned out on exercise in high school when it came to college, I ate what I wanted, drank what I wanted, and ultimately did what I wanted. I did gain weight, but nothing to the point of putting myself in serious jeopardy.
- Boys- Yes, they suck and they want unrealistic things in a woman’s physique, big boobs, big butt, tiny waste and toned legs… Oh please, you have to be a genetic goddess to look like that. What I am saying is don’t listen to any male when it comes to your body. I want you to feel good about yourself and if you don’t like what you see then you change it for you and not for anyone else, especially a boy. A man who loves you, will love you for who you are inside and out and wouldn’t change a thing about you, period!
- Your Aunt Lisa is 24 currently and still working on this concept, it does take time, but hopefully I can tell you enough so it won’t take you as long.
Love you Always and Forever,
