I eat terribly. I love white bread, lots of cheese and share size bags of maltesers to myself. I realised that I have to stop these ridiculous, quick, easy, awful eating habits. I feel bloated, sluggish and just not good. So I have decided to change, starting small as I want this to be a overall lifestyle change, not a fad diet that I'll give up on after about 4 days. I've started by eating fruit and yoghurt for breakfast instead of nothing, or sugary cereal bars. I've found arranging fruit on the plate, or putting it into a small jar helps me, it makes me interested in what is actually on my plate, I don't know why but it just does. No more fizzy drinks, instead I'm trying to drink fresh orange, or water. I'm trying to eat more salads and vegetables in my main meals too. Like i said...small steps first as i want this to be a lifestyle change.
I have joined a gym, with my mum. We've also been taking the dogs on really, really long walks. To keep myself interested in going to the gym I've been trying to find 'cute' gym wear. I also needed to buy a pair of trainers, I don't think I could have found pink-er or brighter ones, but I love them. I found that simple silly things like, nice trainers, cute gym tops give me motivation to actually want to go to the gym. I always really enjoy it when I get there and I feel amazing afterwards, it's just getting my bum off the sofa and to the gym. I bought these trainers from asos link here if you're interested. What do you think?
Slow progress, is better than no progress right? I'm not saying I'll never eat chocolate again because I will. I just want to be healthier and feel better in myself. I instantly feel happier, in my mind picking something healthier over something bad to eat, simply because it's convenient and quick. I know it's a given for most people but, music really motivates me. Thank god for Spotify on my iPhone. I also think I'll feel even more motivated when I start seeing results in my body and also in the way I feel.
I'd just like to say, these are my personal tips and things that I have found that have helped me, in attempting to be healthier. I'm not dishing out advice as I'm no expert in any of this whatsoever, probably the furthest thing from it. But maybe a lot of people can relate to that? I'll keep you updated.
