Hi babes! How are you today? I’m feeling slightly better. Thank goodness! I really don’t want to get the cold Jamie had, it was brutal. So let’s hope this continues on the right path. Just trying to take loads of ginger shots to help my body fight this thing creeping about.
I have to ventilate a little bit, recently my diet hasn’t been the best. It’s been a bit too much eating out. I love eating out but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing and now I think it’s time for me to shape up a little bit when it comes to my diet. I’m training loads but I feel like I’m letting myself down a bit when it comes to my meals. Not that I’ve been eating deep fat fried chippies or anything but I’ve been out to nice restaurants for dinners and it adds up.
I almost feel like I’m slightly stuck in a vicious circle of eating out, like it’s difficult to stop once you’ve gone a little bit off track. It feels useless and you feel like giving up almost but it’s not difficult to steer back on that track. You just plan in your next meal and make sure it’s delicious with lots of veggies and greens. Just start there. Don’t wait until next week, start now.
This doesn’t mean that I’m not going to eat out at all anymore but not as much and when I am I’ll opt for lunch or brunch instead of dinner because it’s a lot easier getting healthier options plus brunch is the best. I need it once in a while.
The other reason to why want to eat out a bit less is all the money I spend on it. I would rather save it for a holiday or something else so now I’m going into saving mode and Jamie is liking this idea too. Good that we’re on the same page because I hate when Jamie says that we should go out for dinner and I have to be the one to say no to save money. Hopefully we’ll stick to this now! I know we’ll go out a couple of times but it needs to be less than what it has been.
How’s your diet at the moment? Are you on track? Would like to get back on track? I would love to hear. It’s always nice to hear that you’re not alone in your struggle haha.
