It's a Miracle

As we all know, I have an extremely hard time with my weight... Let me clarify, not with being pleasantly plump, but rather with being unpleasantly skinny. It causes major problems ie passing/blacking out for random amounts of time, which is... rather unpleasant.
After my last black out in the anatomy lab (my face went into the abdominal cavity of a cadaver- don't ask), I've decided to make health my priority. Here is my list of ways to improve me health:

1) Eat like I am suppose to- eat a big balanced meal every four hours (7, 11, 3, 7, 11)- yeah that's five meals a day... now you see why it was hard for me to keep on track...
2) Work out to gain weight- gym 3 times a week for at least an hour
3) Don't burn excess calories- as directed by doctors, I have stopped running. I love but it burn way too many calories.

Results... it's official I have gained 3 pounds in the last month and a half!!! It's a miracle. No seriously... miracle!

I personally think that health should be everyone's priority. Just because you are skinny doesn't mean you don't need to eat right and exercise regularly. After shadowing so many doctors, I have a gained a stronger opinion of this. You don't have to be skinny to be healthy. Every body is different, but being healthy applies to all.

PS I'm going to Disneyland on Thursday!!
PPS I didn't really land in a cadaver... I was just hugging a urinal as i was puking and my body was all over the floor- luckily it had just been cleaned :D

boo hoo poor you...

the real sob story is being the only girl in the family and the only one who got dad's jeans. (it's a given that nan got dad's jeans but isn't nan essentially one and the same with dad?)

really though, i didn't know you were still have those problems. i hope your plan works and that you get healthy soon!

i do like and agree with what you said about the correlation between being healthy and being skinny. i will never, ever be skinny but i am usually, healthy, although not right now...that is another story.
