It’s fair to say the last 3 months or so my health and fitness have fallen off the bandwagon. I have been eating all those things I know I shouldn’t. I have been indulging. Ice cream, chocolates, cake, cheese, pizza, processed foods, even gluten. I normally have so much self control and just didn’t see where my eating habits were starting to take me. I also didn’t know why I was eating all of this.
I was comfort eating
I have since March bought a new house, had drama through the land we were buying titling, organising a move and everything that went with it. Then the new house had a lot of drama that came with it, electricity and plumbing problems. Also, I have been having a lot of stress at work and my Psoriasis was flaring and I felt like I was drowning. I resorted to food for comfort. I can now understand that when everything seems to be going wrong how good food can make you feel and how it becomes a drug and you just want to keep eating those bad things. You keep going back for more, you tell yourself no more but you just keep going back, specially to sugar. It begins to take over your life and it’s and an endless cycle.
You tell yourself you won’t eat this rubbish anymore, then you look at yourself and you don’t see that great body and you feel miserable. How do you feel better? By eating more of the fatty food that got you there in the first place.
It’s a vicious cycle and something I didn’t want to continue or become a life long problem. I have always been slim and currently is the most I have weighed. Although it’s a 7kg weight gain over 3 months, it’s not something I want to look back at in 2 years and be a 50kg weight gain. I want to end the bad habits before they become part of who I am.
I did some research and I found the Ashley Condon 21 day challenge. I’m starting that from today. I am making up my own diet but I am following her exercise plan with a couple of au situations. Here is he full 21 Day program.
I will be blogging my journey along the way, I know it’s not going to be easy but I am determined to be a better me, physically and emotionally.
