Last week I was full of good intentions for kick starting my healthy eating regime, however I wasn’t as good as I had intended! Upon evaluation, I think I ate healthily for about 60% of the week. This is realistically not good enough. My main downfall came from food preparation.
Although I was initially motivated, I found myself craving unhealthy food come mid week. This is mainly down to two reasons; the first being that I have become accustomed to unhealthy food over the Christmas season and so now my body is craving fatty food. The second reason is definitely down to unimaginative meals. I really dislike boring food, it leaves me unsatisfied. I tend to pick at chocolate and crisps if the meal I ate was bland. Even if I am full, I will still snack on unhealthy food. That was one of my biggest downfalls last week. As I was tired (my first week back in work) I became unmotivated to plan my meals for I’d say about half the week. I became bored and so reached for the bad stuff. This week I am going to do my best to stay at least one day ahead with my food prep.
Last Night’s Food Prep for Today:
The weekend was by far my biggest downfall. It always is. Despite the fact I didn’t consume even one drop of alcohol, I still managed to eat like I was hungover; i.e. eat crap! Again relating back to the food prep aspect, I was lazy at the weekend and so kept grabbing quick fix snacks which were high in sugar and saturated fat. I also went for dinner and the cinema so I can’t even comprehend how many calories were consumed on both outings. I think it’s best I don’t know! I do however think weekends off are for enjoying, but maybe just not so much in my case. I need to keep my organisational levels up and this will hopefully reduce my unhealthy eating habits.
Sums me up:
I’m hoping next week’s evaluation is more successful. I am already keeping note of today’s eating antics! In the mean time I hope you all have a happy & healthy week 🙂
