Hiii! I’m Shannon, 18 years old, senior in high school! I live in Floridaaaa, love it. I am planning on going to Florida Atlantic University next year and I am MORE than excited!
I have a boyfriend! His name is Zach annnd he lives in MISSOURI :( That is 1,000 miles away from me, so obviously we are long distant. We met in Panama City Beach, FL (We were both on vacation) and have been dating for about a year and a half now! Things are so great with us, usually visiting each other about every 2 months. We are planning on going to college with each other next year and I can’t wait!
I have always thought the less I eat, the skinnier I will be. So I was starving myself, going on multiple fad diets, and not eating for days at a time. However, I came to the realization that, that is only harming me and not doing anything good for my health. Yes, I would loose weight, but I would quickly gain it back and sometimes even more.
SO I have adopted a new lifestyle. Eating healthy and nourishing my body with the nutrients it needs. I love food so I have found good, healthy foods for me to eat that actually satisfy me. Some of my favorites are:
Vanilla chobani yogurt, egg whites, egg substitute, turkey bacon, bagel thins, fat free cheese (all kinds), “go lean” cereal and oatmeal, almond milk, silk, soups, pita pizza (my recipe=AMAZING), pita chips, all fruits, most vegetables, annnnd fat free hot chocolate!
As for exercise, I dance! I am on my studio’s dance team that practices every fridays and preforms at various venues around town throughout the year. I also take daily classes about 2 hours a day. ALSO, I work at my studio 2 days a week, haha so it is pretty much my second home. However, when I do have time, I exercise at my neighborhood’s gym whenever I can! (I just moved into a new house this summer, I LOVE IT!)
Well thanks for reading all this! I’ll be updating the “My life now” page frequently (hopefully!) so that will keep y’all updated on everything. And don’t forget to live a happy and healthy life!
