The events of this summer have let me stray away from my healthy habits. In fact, I found that healthy eating is probably not a ‘habit’ of mine. I have been indulging in way more sugary and fatty foods than I actually like eating. Though it’s easy to blame circumstance, I know that these are my daily choices and I didn’t always make the right choice.
I gained some weight, I feel sluggish, I have been fighting nasal congestion that may or may not be allergies. And this right here is my motivation to make better choices.
My struggle has always been to make healthy choices a habit. It works well in my normal routine. But as soon as I travel or break my daily routine for other reasons, I fall off the healthy habit wagon. This is what I need to change.
The funny thing is as soon as I eat a well balanced diet I don’t ever feel any need or hunger for foods that are bad for me. This is what I need to remember!
Here is what I am focusing on for the next 4 months:
- cut down on unrefined carbs – no more bread!
- eat organic wherever possible – fruit, veggies and meat.
- eat LOTS of fruit and vegetable. Go for 7 a day!
- use nuts and fruit as snacks.
- don’t eat any processed food.
- only eat lean meats.
My biggest challenge will be not eating any bread and eating more veggies and fruit. I’ll be solving some of this through introducing more fruit smoothies and finally trying veggie smoothies.
To making healthy choices!
