You'd think with as far as I've come with learning how to eat healthy, that staying at home wouldn't be so difficult. I'd love to sit here and say I've been killing it drinking my shakes and avoiding temptation, and getting my steps in...but that would be a lie.
How are you doing? Are you finding it challenging to stay motivated? I am. Are you snacking? I am.
I'm trying to be honest here. And it's not pretty.
Since Easter, I haven't been having my shakes for lunch. Instead, I've been eating leftovers for lunch. And snacking on Easter Candies - mostly things like jelly beans. Damn sugary things are addicting!
But, I have been trying to drink my water at least. I don't always make my goal, but I'm trying.
It's not easy...
And if you are having the same issues, it's okay to admit.
I feel like I have lost my stride. During the day I am HUNGRY. I WANT to eat/snack. Today I started my shakes again, and all I felt like as I drank it, was I wanted FOOD. Ugh. Have you been here? It's not fun. And it is going to take effort to get over this hump, to get back on track.
This stay at home thing hit me where it hurts, in my belly!
I am snacking way too much, and it makes me want to snack more.
All bad habits I moved past.
I think we over compensated for not getting to have our usual Easter with the family. We always got chocolate from each of our parents and from us. And I think we bought too much to compensate. And of course we buy snacks since we are stuck in the house and can't go run around just because we feel like it.
Things are just different here in our house with all 3 of us home every day. I don't feel like making dinner come 6pm, so our meals are less desirable than they should be. And I'm trying to find my motivation to correct that.
That has to be the key - Motivation.
I want that thinner waist. I want that healthier heart. And I want to look better.
What do you want? Are you ready to go for it?
I'm starting today, doing what I can do, but by Monday I want to be fully back into the swing of my healthy lifestyle regardless of stay at home order.
That is my goal.
I've been out of this long enough.
Let's do this!!
