So i bet some of you had new years resolutions of eat healthy loose weight? I did, or should I say I do, I have decided its all well and good cutting out snacks and not drinking fizzy drink ( I’m a sucker for a pepsi max) that I will make all my meals super healthy, I have been eating healthily now since 31 st December, its not been as hard as I thought what after the cascade of chocolate at christmas, Remember this post I wrote about in August about eating healthy and my weight loss over the summer? Between the months of October and December I was at a really low point with myself and I decided if I wanted to eat rubbish I would because you know what it made me feel happier, well to be honest it really didn’t my skin was the worst it has been ever and my energy levels were pretty non-exsistant, so I ate junk over christmas and I figured that it was basically my duty as a Masters in my house christmas is all about chocolates, twiglets and turkey and as of 2013 I will power through with the healthy lifestyle. The main word there being lifestyle, I figured the best way for me to do this ( as I am a visual thinker artist and all that) would be that i would think myself healthy sounds stupid but its totally working, think of myself in 6 months how i want to look, feel and be and thats what gets me through not bingeing on chocolate when I get in from work, or thinking that its too hard i want to eat rubbish, instead eating some almonds and dried cranberries (totally my favourites) Its so much easier then I thought, i feel so much more in control and a lot happier it really is amazing what you can do if you set your mind to it.
To help me this year I have decided to make myself a little cook / healthy book filled with home-made recipes, for when I am feeling totally un-inspired, when i’m thinking i’ve had enough of the same food, because variety is indeed the spice of life and being healthy is so important, to add to this little book I discovered the amazing joy the baker the other day massive fan her food is awesome. I will be sharing with you, a few of my recipes and foody stuff as the weeks go on.
Have you made any little changes so far this year?
