Okay, okay. I know what you’re thinking – oh here she is, “back on the horse” AGAIN…trying to eat cleaner…AGAIN. Well, you’re not wrong.
I have been moving very slow in this journey. It took me awhile to recover from the great losses I suffered in 2020, and adjusting to working from home and a new role at my job. I am well aware it’s 2 years later, but it was rough. I have been trying to make changes one at a time – getting through the adjustment period. I have been working on being more active, more often.
I dusted off all my paleo/clean eating books and magazines. I am focused on putting healthier food into my body. I haven’t been sleeping great consistently – I have nights where I do sleep soundly, but there are nights I do not. And my sinuses have been horrendously messed up…not just from allergies.
Using food as coping mechanism for so long is a hard habit to break. I crave sweet things most of the time. I can get on a 3 day kick of eating better, and then usually work stress gets me, or it’s the weekend.
The first thing I want to break is my sugar addiction. I remember how hard this was the first time, but I also remember how rewarding it was. I just turned 39, and I need to get my butt in gear.
I am starting with trying to make a meal plan – scouring all these books that I own, and making the best choices I can.
It’s not going to be easy, but I’ll get it done. I’ve done it before.
