Skinny Vs. Fit

So.. my blog name is Finding the Inner Skinny. But I have a confession to make.
I don't want to just be skinny. Honestly, I suck at naming things (seriously.. my kids will probably be something boring like John or Michael..) and Finding the Inner Fit was already a blog's name. 

I want to be fit.

I want to do a regular push-up and not have my knees on the ground.
I want to run and not run out of breath.
I want to have energy.
I want to be able to out-run Dakota. (It has always bugged me, even when I was thin. What did I tell you? I'm competitive!)
I want to wear a bikini and not feel frumpy or fat or any other ugly word.
I want to show off parts of my body that I never have before.
I want to feel healthy.
I don't want high blood pressure.

Some of these are shallow. I realize that.
But some are for my health. I am too young for high blood pressure. It is hereditary, and my dad has high blood pressure. But that doesn't mean I have to at 22 years old. 

I don't want to lose weight at the expense of being strong.
I don't want to be thin and weak.

I want to be fit.
