So I’ve been quiet lately, feeling very uninspired and a little bit unwell, but that’s OK, we all have those times in our lives where we just feel a little shit. For me life has got in the way and I’ve had a lot going on that would evoke negative emotions, so in the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on some stuff and doing a lot of my self care from my previous blog post, and I know what I’ve to do now, I really need to focus on taking care of my diet, for me I find my diet dictates a lot for me, If I can get it back to where I like it I’l be on a better path in general.
So for me, my diet it something I contend with a lot, I’m not particularly big at a UK size 12, but I am short and I am definitely not as healthy as I have been over the years and that is something I am tackling with gusto, I have half-arsed it for the last few months and it shows in my mood, fitness, how i feel in my body and pretty much all aspects of my life.
For me I found the Slimming World diet worked best for me when actually wanting to lose weight, and I did keep a lot of that off, but as I went through the years and learned more about food and nutrition, I adapted slimming world to suit me, I love slimming world and how much fruit and veg you get in your diet, and how you can happily eat carbs, but I do think taking in healthy fats without worrying about Syns etc. is also important… That is just what works for me, I don’t have any qualifications in nutrition, it is just what has worked for me over the years and what I enjoy.
My point of this chit-chatty blog post? I am putting it out in the universe I am making a conscious effort to eat regularly and as healthy as I can and have a healthy and happy attitude towards food and myself and not beat myself up for the bad meals. Self care in a major way for me… it’s more about my mental health and my physical health then image, and I think that’s a really healthy attitude to have!
Expect plenty of recipes and food related posts… but for those of you who don’t care about food or know so much more about it then I do, I’ll still be posting more; beauty, travel and lifestyle blogs over the next while.
For anyone taking on a new challenge or change, I wish you the best of luck with it, it’s all about doing what feels right for you at the right time, and this is my challenge at the moment.
Luck and Love,
