question about exercising enough
(Detroit, Michigan, USA)
I am a growing teen who whenever I eat, I right away feel guilty. I feel off all the time on the weekends because I don't exercise. During school, i eat perhaps a third of my lunch, the lunch meat in my sandwich and a few crackers + water, and afterwards, maybe 2 hours later, I got to P.E. and still feel guilty about myself. So whenever i have time, i ride on my bike or try to do sprints in the front yard of my house. I am 5 feet 2 inches and 107 pounds. Am i healthy enough or should i try to do more exercise?
Hi Fern, you need to remember that food and eating are NOT enemies to feel guilty about, they're nutrition and fuel for your body. They are what give us energy and keep us healthy. So I'd highly recommend that you read how to do what I call happy eating. In addition, I'd be really careful that you aren't on the path to exercise bulimia by over-exercising.
