So this blog post is a day late which I greatly apologise for but I’ve been busy to say the least. I’m currently trying my hardest to do 15 hours of work/revision outside of college and that’s tricky to do when you’re juggling the rest of your life as well.
I didn’t do too bad this week but to be honest that isn’t really what this post is about. What I really wanted to talk about is my relationship with food and how I’m trying to make it healthier. I like food. I guess I always have and when you’re stressed quite a lot of the time and you have an opportunity to ‘treat yourself’ I find myself going.. lets say a tad over board. I can’t stop at one thing as a treat I tend to go all out and buy a bunch of food and then regret it the next day. So I’m consistently on this seesaw of what to eat and how much to eat and what’s the best way of measuring and planning this idyllic healthy lifestyle.
I also find eating on the go quite tricky because there’s very little choice and availabiliity of hot healthy food yet on the flip side you have the likes of McDonalds, KFC and Subway. Now i’m not saying deprive yourself of a maccies. I’m saying it’s hard to stay away when places like that are so convenient and just there every day. And the problem with treating myself is when I start to treat myself on a daily basis which obviously quickly becomes unhealthy. Quite often I find myself trying to be healthier on holiday which I know sounds almost bizarre but it’s true.
So I thought about all things food and have decided to just try and cut out the treat stuff. Refrain from the unhealthy options and choose the healthy ones instead. Healthier products tend to be that bit pricier so hopefully by only choosing them it’ll help me generally eat less (only eat what I really need) and eat better.
I’ll let you know how long I can curb temptation.
Thanks always, Em x
