So I’ll start with the bad, I feel bad because I feel like I abandoned people who came to my blog often. I know some people are curious about how I eat and others just like to catch up on how I’m doing. Being away for a few months from blogging, I can’t say I actually missed blogging but I feel that I have let people down.
My health is important to me and even more so now. Learning about my health and eating healthy, it’s a process and I know it is not only a process for me but for many people. I know I’m not alone in my struggles and I’m not always perfect. I screw up, I get away from how I should be eating, sometimes purposely to test what works and what doesn’t for me and sometimes because it just can’t be helped, life happens.
I find it hard to blog about my life and how things are going in terms of my struggles, especially when I am really struggling or just plain old don’t have any time. I want you all to realize though that even though I don’t always enjoy admitting that I am not perfect, I do realize nobody is.
So for the good, now that I am in a place in my life once again that I can get my health back on track, I feel energized again. Even though I have only been eating better for a day, I just feel great. When you know you are eating things you shouldn’t be eating, when you feel out of control, it really brings you down. You feel like you’ve lost control and can’t get back to where you were. I have been down in the dumps for the past few months and I didn’t really realize that it was because I just felt bad that I was losing control of my health once again. I was sore, tired and it made me sad. I couldn’t do much about it at the time and now that I can, it feels like a new beginning. I woke up more excited today than I have in a while and I feel good that I am going to start feeling good again. Sounds strange to say but it’s true.
This is day two and I am already noticing a difference in my mood, my energy, my skin and for the first day in a few weeks I didn’t wake up with a headache. I drove by fast food last night and didn’t feel the urge to stop in for a treat.(not that I do all the time) It was nice, my cravings are going away already and that just makes me smile. I hate craving food that I know isn’t good for me. Now if only I could start craving more foods that are actually good for me, it would make things easier!
