So it's been almost 2 months since my original Healthy Living post so you could assume that I've been working hard to get the super healthy, toned, slim body I've always wanted. Well, you'd be wrong to assume that. In fact if anything I've probably put on weight since my original post, but as Im currently refusing to weigh myself, (I just don't need that stress) I have no idea how much I weigh, but my body is definitely still a bit too wobbly in all the wrong places!
As you might remember, I decided to quit sugar. This was going amazingly and I felt so great in myself, I lost a few pounds and I was really happy with what I was eating, and then deadlines happened. The last month or so has been a hideous sugar binge and I have once again failed.
You're probably wondering why my plans to get healthy/loose weight/quit sugar became total failures, and here is why;
- I'm lazy and I procrastinate.
- I'm an emotional eater and turn to food when I'm; stressed, angry, upset, happy, confident or unconfident. Basically any emotion I can use to justify eating.
- I've been stressed and struggling with things, and it's easier to eat unhealthy sugary foods which make you feel better for a few minutes, than to eat healthy food that gives no comfort but in the long run makes you happier.
- I stopped trying.
The last one is probably a massive factor in my healthy living failure. One bad day turns into a bad week, then a bad month, and then there is no point trying anymore. It's a bad mentality to have, but I'm sure it's a mentality a lot of people have, especially when it comes to healthy living and weight loss.
However, all is not lost. There is nothing stopping me from starting again, picking up where I left off and getting my big butt back in gear. So that's the plan. I'm once again quitting sugar as well as trying to eat as healthy as possible. I'm also going to attempt some exercise to improve my fitness level, which is currently embarrassingly bad.
I'm also going to try and improve my feelings towards myself and my body. It's time to embrace myself, and realise that I'm perfect exactly as I am. Even though I'd still like to loose some weight it's not something that I need to look good as Im already looking damn sexy!
Hopefully this post marks the beginning of another healthy living stage in my life, and along with that will come some more posts related to all things fitness, healthy living and weight loss. Has anyone else been a total failure in their goals recently? If you've got any posts related to these topics please link me as I'm in need of some inspiration to keep me going!
