It’s been a while since I have done a “Healthy Me” post and I wanted to do one again but I wasn’t really sure what to talk about. Lately I don’t feel like I am healthy or like I am trying hard to reach my goals. I almost felt like the wrong person to be writing about being healthy. I was feeling this way until I realized that for someone like me, that has a bit of an unhealthy relationship with food, can give some insight and maybe someone out there feels the same and now they know they are not alone. So today I want to talk about how a healthy lifestyle is a journey and tell you a bit more about mine. Enjoy!
Sometimes, especially after eating junk food, I think about where I would be if I hadn’t eaten that junk food. I always think about this and I always say “I will definitely start on Monday!” The problem with that, is that I always find myself “starting on Monday.” If it’s a Friday I will actually end up eating more throughout the weekend because I think it is okay since I will be eating better starting the next week. Before I know, a month has passed and I still haven’t started on Monday.
It gets really frustrating because I know I should eat healthier but for some reason my mind stays on eating out. I would have to say that eating out is my biggest weakness and if anyone has some tips on how to get rid of that habit, I would love to know!
We have one life and that life keeps going whether or not we are going to start a better habit on Monday. That is why I have started thinking about it as a journey instead of something that will start on a given day. I have to remember that it was a slow journey that lead me to my bad habits so it will also be a slow journey to get good habits. Thinking about weightloss, and becoming healthier, as a journey helps me not only avoid getting super down on myself for not having a healthy day but it also helps me realize that if I don’t make my next choice a healthy one, then life will continue and my bad habits will only grow stronger.
Life is a journey and it is me to make my journey a healthy one.
This was kind of a short one but I think an important one nonetheless.
I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start. What are you doing to make your journey and healthy/positive one?
