Oh my goodness guys, I am on the bad blogger train and I need to jump off of it. I had every intention of blogging at least once a week but as we can all see that hasn’t happened, lol. I wish I had some excellent excuse on why, but in reality I just was a slacker. I don’t know if you are like me but once winter hits I just get so unmotivated to do anything! Maybe it’s the cold, the dark, the lack of vitamin D but I find everything hard to do. It doesn’t help that I have been a bad eater lately. I know what things make me feel good and what make me feel bad and I have not been listening to my body like I should.
Sometimes in life you have to go away from the popular opinion. You have to stand up for yourself, your body, your life without the support of others. I am lucky that I have people in my life that are completely supportive but that doesn’t mean that sometimes things get hard. I know that animal protein, dairy, and gluten are pretty much on the no fly list for me yet there are times I find myself consuming at least one of the three. I am not perfect. I have never claimed to be and can find myself struggling even though I know what steps I need to take.
It’s time to be a grow up (even though I am in my 30’s) and stand up for myself and my health. I do not want my son to learn that slacking off is the way to go. That being healthy means only doing it in January. I can’t let stupid excuses like “oh, it’s winter”… or “oh, it’s the holidays” allow me to treat myself badly. I know that a plant based diet without gluten is the best for me and darn it I deserve to feel my best! Time to get back on the health wagon, making delicious food that will make me feel amazing. And while I am at it, it’s time to get back to working out consistently! I am not going to wait until January…the slacking stops now!
