As a blogger, writing about your health, fitness, and food habits can be a little tricky. In fact, my friend and I were talking the other day about being “that person.” You know the one who constantly talks about going to the gym, posts pics of their smoothies and meals, or even selfies when working out. Are you guilty of being “that person?” Well, I’m not ashamed to say that I just might become “that person” and not feel one ounce of bad about it.
In fact, as I write this, I’m waiting for my lunch to arrive. A nice healthy salad, if you’re wondering. I’ll spare you the pics on Instagram.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about my relationship with food and how it’s affecting my life. I’ve gone so long thinking of it in a way that’s only been hurting me, not helping me. Instead of viewing it as nutrition for my body, I’ve looked at is an indulgence. And that needs to change.
Now, I’m not talking about going on a strict diet, because that’s not a word I’m fond of. What I am talking about is bringing the joy back into the foods I’ve neglected for so long. I really need to change my food train of thought and eating habits.
Just so you know, I’m a true believer in baby steps. I can’t rush into something crazy or over the top. I’m more likely to quit that way. And FYI, this is a thought process that works for me. Always think about what works for you and your body.
When it comes to eating better, I’ve already started researching options. And I like the idea of The Whole30 Program. Particularly, because of some medical issues I’m dealing with. My friends are doing it right now and they say it’s challenging. Have any of you tried it? Tell me in the comments below what your experience with it is. Also, is that something you’d like for me to share here?
And believe it or not, I started working out yesterday (see photo). Like I said…baby steps. I walked for an hour on the treadmill. My body sure loved that after not working out for a long time. Can you say sore hips? Anyways, this also led me to the conclusion that I need a new sports bra. You don’t even want to know how old my current sports bra is. No you don’t. Feel free to leave your bra recommendations below!
So, take this post as a warning that I may become “that person.” And I’m doing all of this in the name of a healthier Curves and Chaos. I’m just hoping to bring you along for the ride on my fitness journey.
