Happy Friday. Can ya believe the week is already over? This week is absolutely flying by!!
So… let’s talk about something. Because I seem to have forgotten this little blog is about healthy living. This week I have just not been healthy.
I have had completely normal workouts because I crave the endorphins BUT my eating has been completely off.
Something I have not shared with you, because honestly I just wanted to keep it to myself, for the past month-ish I have been following the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan. I have not been doing it as strictly on the weekends but for the most part, I was really good about it. Why did I do this? To feel better. I just honestly needed something to get my snacky little fingers out of every single chip bag or chocolate jar at the Kappa house.
What has been different about this week? I don’t really know. I have not wanted a single vegetable. Usually I will pick a healthier option over the unhealthier option because that is what I genuinely want. But not this week. This week I have been craving salty snacks, Halloween candy, ice cream, etc. Last night I ate two gigantic ooey gooey, warm chocolate chip cookies.
Do I regret this? Kind of. Only because I have been focusing on clean eating for a few weeks and I have felt so much better. Do I think that 5 days can ruin it? Absolutely not. Do I need to jump back on the bandwagon NOW? Absolutely.
However, because I have been lacking in the nourishing eats department this week, it just reminds me how important it is to actually take care of my health. I have more energy. I am less cranky. I am able to focus more in class. I sleep better. I feel like myself.
I wanted to share this with you because I think it is important to not just tell you guys about all my workouts and healthy eats. I slip up all the time.
So… even though it is Friday I am challenging myself with an “eat clean weekend challenge.” Will I stick to it perfectly? Probably not. I am going to see Parker and I will probably slip up… but I am making a conscious effort to cut the sugar and processed food so that this unhealthy streak does not turn into anymore than these past 5 days. I have all of my little snacks packed and ready to go.
Monday I will give you a full report on how I did.
Anyone wanna join in with me?
Have a fabulous Friday! Thanks for listening to me ramble. I love you all!
