I’ve decided to try something out; I am going to do a weekly post about my diet and eating habits. I find that for the majority of the week I eat healthy meals however my down fall is my snacking. I don’t even realise I am doing it half the time. Before I know it I have eaten 2 squares of chocolate, then another two, then another two and you see where this is going. Doing this is probably worse than just eating the whole bar at once as I am not actually fully satisfying my cravings. In my mind I still haven’t had a bar of chocolate though realistically I have. These habits are actually detrimental to my quest for abs. I really need to cut out the sugar! I am going to evaluate any improvements or any habits that have worsened, once a week. I hope you guys will enjoy 🙂 at the very least you can laugh at my significant lack of willpower!
I intend to do these posts once a week, usually on a Friday as this gives me a decent time to reflect on. I just want to point out that my over all aim is not to become ‘skinny’ I want to eat healthy to be healthy. I don’t believe in starving myself or depriving myself (as you will see from this weekly posts 😉 ) but I do want to look after my body and prevent health issues further down the line. My aim is to be strong and healthy with muscle as opposed to skinny and unhealthy. Since I started eating healthy (ier) and introducing exercise, I have actually put on weight, but I feel I look better and not too thin and frail! I have let this slip over the last year and a half as I have been eating and drinking far too much. So I am hoping by keeping a weekly diary for want of a better word, I will be able to pinpoint my bad habits and resolve them. I have chosen not to do a daily food diary as I don’t want to become obsessive over every little thing that goes into my mouth so once a week is enough for me.
Until tomorrow my loves 🙂
