Happy weekend everyone! I hope you all have a great one. :) Mine has been pretty low key. I wrote my last final on Friday so I am really enjoying all this free time.
I have a few things I want to share with you today. So, lets get right into it!
Those are all pictures of unhealthy food I’ve eaten over the past two weeks. Doesn’t look like a lot does it? Well that’s because the rest of the junk food I ate went unpictured. Just imagine more ice cream cones & ice cream, chocolate, sugary cereal, very generous amounts of Nutella and white bread.
No, I did not eat all those things in moderation. And for the past few days, there haven't been many fruits and veggies in sight.
So, what happened to me?
I stopped being so strict with myself. I was so caught up with being healthy and not eating anything “bad” anymore.
So, what did this lead to?
It lead to me eating more junk food than my body could handle. My self-control went out the window. I have been experiencing extreme stomach cramps, bloating, heart burn, headaches etc. for the past two weeks.
I feel like my body is totally out of whack and can’t function right. I’m reminded why I chose to start eating healthy. Eating healthy food makes me and my body feel good. I have more energy and just overall feel better. Eating copious amounts of junk without any nutrients just doesn’t do my body any good.
I’ve learnt a lot over the past two weeks.
- I have been depriving myself. I’m embarking on a new journey to listen to my body more than I have been before. If I’m craving a freaking bowl of ice cream or some chocolate, I will not deprive myself. I wont over eat either. It’s all about moderation.
- I haven't been listening to my body properly. I’m one of those people that eats when they’re bored or stressed. From now on I want to listen to my hunger signals.
I’m going to be honest, I wasn’t sure if I should share this on my blog. I’m afraid I may have disappointed some of you.
I mean, there's this girl that claims to be a healthy living blogger and then she goes ahead and eats all this junk?!?
Yes, I made a mistake by overeating on so much junk food. But I’ve also learnt my lesson, too.
I eat healthy because I like to. It makes me feel my very best. Eating some unhealthy junk here and there wont kill me, it’ll only stop me from having these phases of going overboard until my body cant take it anymore.
Writing this all out has made me feel really good. I’m ready to truly start a healthy living lifestyle.
What have you been up to this weekend? What is something you recently learnt about yourself and your habits? What does “living a healthy lifestyle” mean to you?
