I’m Trying To Eat Clean Y’all
I’m trying really hard, but processed food is so good. Turning down junk food isn’t too difficult except when it comes to sweets! But I’m practicing moderation and really focusing on what I eat MAJORITY of the time. For the most part, I’ve been eating really healthy. I’ve been eating breakfast everyday, cooking dinner, and taking lunch with me to school. But I find myself slipping from time to time. I never beat myself up for it though, especially since I’ve been working out 6x a week. I just know that if I could really buckle down on this clean eating thing, I’d be seeing the body I want real soon.
Side note: why is peanut butter so delicious? I’ve almost eaten a whole jar in a week! My go to pre or post workout snack is a slice of toast with peanut butter, banana, and honey. Or a simple PB&J sandwich.
Anywho, I looked at my before pictures and I can clearly see that my body is changing, but I feel like my stomach isn’t going anywhere and that, of course, is the one thing I really want to get rid of. As of now I do cardio 3x a week, but I think I’m gonna do a lil cardio everyday. We’ll see if I can manage it with my strength training workouts.
I’ve been thinking about this blog and how disconnected I’ve been recently. I used to look to tumblr, or more specifically fitblr, for motivation, new ideas, and guidance for how to be healthy. But now that I have a better sense of what being healthy means and I no longer need as much motivation because I’ve developed healthy habits, I find myself spending less and less time here. I will always acknowledge how much the fitblr community has helped me in my journey to lose weight and become a healthy individual though. And I hope to be motivation for others, which is my main reason for keeping this blog active. But I can honestly say I no longer NEED this blog and that’s a great feeling.
