My experiences with switching back to clean-ish eating and generally caring about what my body digests.
Clean eating. It sounds so simple when you read blogs and see the pictures on Instagram.
Why yes that is a shameless food post from my Instagram, and yes, it is on a Styrofoam plate because I’m fancy as fudge.
I also really hate dirty dishes.
It’s true clean eating may be easier for some than others and I understand that. There are some people that act like the transition was nothing though and I just find it hard to believe. Some of these avocado fueled people also like to brag about how easy it is, how much energy they have and how they haven’t craved anything “dirty” since. Yeah, those people. I feel like they’re filled with clean eating bullshit and hope they find hair in their quinoa bowls.
If you’re looking for someone to tell you how simple clean eating is and how when you shop for fresh produce a majestic unicorn appears and grants your diet wishes while giving you butterfly kisses and free coupons. You might as well move along now cupcake because this isn’t that type of blog. Although I will probably talk about unicorns, because they’re fantastic beasts that have magical blood that can keep you alive even if you’re an inch from death.
I am going to check in as often as I can and talk about how my new-ish healthy lifestyle journey is going. I am not going to promise I will post every day, or every week because I don’t like lying to people. Most the time I think about posting but honestly, I am lazy and I just don’t get around to it. Plus, I don’t want to be that annoying person that posts every moment of my day to day, because who really cares? Or do most people care and I am just heartless? Either way I don’t really roll that way and this isn’t Facebook.
I think it’s important to know or at least have an idea why you’re doing something. It’s like having a goal. Sometimes it makes no difference if I have one or not because I will avoid it like it’s an infected zombie wanting to be cuddle buddies, but It sounds nice right? The goal part not cuddle zombies. I can’t imagine how your sheets would smell.
Back on subject. Goals!
My goal is to have energy again and losing weight would be a welcomed bonus. Most days I wake up tired, go through the day wishing I was in bed, get home and not feel like doing anything and then a few hours later I’m in bed playing on my phone wishing I could sleep wondering where the time went. Why don’t I put my phone away? Because there are other distractions, such as but not limited to the tv, books, puppies, finding the source of the shiny light on the ceiling, puppy pooping, the noise in the living room, my eyes won’t stay shut, having to go potty then ending up in the kitchen eating a snack oh and my favorite is worrying about all the stuff I was too lazy to do. What is it about laying down and trying to relax that makes your brain go “let me remind you of everything there is to be worried about.’’
My first step back into it is to try eating a vegetable or fruit with every meal or snack and drink more water. It’s all about baby steps, especially since my husband doesn’t know he’s going to be clean eating too. Before I get all the hate, he is supportive and when I asked him a few weeks ago what he thought about going back to eating clean he said, and these are his exact words. “It’s whatever you want to do.” Word of advice, careful what you say to me because it can and will be used against you.
So, I or should I say, we will be starting this today. I will check in with updates in a week or so and see if I have spent my bill money on doughnuts and milkshakes.
Until next time guys!
