beautyovershadowed asked: what types of sandwiches do you usually make for school? and i wanna start running but im too embarrassed for people to see me running outside b/c im not very healthy
As for sandwiches, as long as you are using non-processed foods as fillers almost everything can be healthy, to an extent, of course. I start with whole wheat bread. Then, I usually take whatever leftover meat there is from last night’s dinner (sometimes roasted chicken, beef stir fry, turkey, ham, you get it) and start with that. Add spinach or lettuce, and whatever veggies you find appetizing. I almost always add onions, olives, cilantro and tomatoes, because those are my favorites, however just add whatever you feel like! When it comes to dressing I cannot stress enough how many calories people tend to waste on dumb spreads like mayo. Switch to low fat mayo if you reeeeally need to, however ranch, another substitute (like a veggie dip or your own creation) or even better no dressing/spread at all would be ideal. My rule is I only like to have one protein on my sandwich, so if I am doing a meat on it already I don’t usually add cheese, but if I do a vegetarian sandwich I have a mozzarella, roasted tomatoes and pesto sandwich. But adding cheese is up to you. Mostly when it comes to sandwiches its just kind of what you find in your fridge type of thing, like oh, here is some tuna or here is some peanut butter, lets see what we can do. But what I cannot stress enough is: stay away from processed meats, cheeses and spreads at all costs!
As for the running thing, I know exactly how you feel. There is nothing I hate more than seeing people I know while running or getting a text from someone after my run saying ‘oh I saw you running!’ What I try to do is go at times that I wouldn’t normally see people. For example, no one gets up earlier than seven on a weekend without reason. So that’s when I go for a run. Or because I have a spare period at school, I get to come home early on thurdsays, and thus, go for a run. It’s also good to plan out a map before you go to minimize run ins with people you don’t like. But all I can say is it really doesn’t matter what other people think, because in two months when you are fit and healthy, and the others who judged you for running aren’t, they will think twice about critiquing you in the future. So just get out there and don’t worry!
