Back on track

Lately I haven’t been doing it great with food, too much chocolate and bad chips. I still exercise and walk a lot. Walking is very relaxing for me. I have exercise now 4 times a week instead of three. I use to plan on Monday, Wednesday and Friday but when I have appointment then I exercise only once or twice a week. That is not enough for me if I want to make sure that my muscles stay strong. That is why I change it to Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. That way I know I will at least exercise three times a week. I don’t do an half hour, that will be too much ask of my body to do that four times a week. I set alarm for 20 minutes. When alarm goes off and I am not done with it then I finish it. After that, I take 5-10 minutes time to stretch. The combination works well for me. I walk at least four times a week for about a half hour.

That goes well but what comes to food, not that great. However I do feel no guilt anymore 7a06a2412b961e62b7c55979473cdf4awhen it goes wrong, just a bit bummed that I gave in to sugar again. At least that is a win. I always used to feel guilty and angry with myself for giving in, for being weak. But no more! I am not angry nor feel guilty. For this moment, it just happened and I do know that my breakfast and lunch are always healthy. It is just my diner; it is sometimes chocolate and chips instead of healthy meal. It is not like the whole day goes wrong, just late afternoon. I don’t have those stuff in my flat but I live only few minutes’ walk from the mall. It is easy for me to say, let go to the mall and buy something unhealthy.
I read an article that says that sugar as addictive as cocaine.
Unfortunately, sugar is added in lots of product, in almost everything. If I could afford it, I would buy nothing but organic food, but I can’t. I do however read the labels and don’t buy it if there is sugars added. Like I said, it goes wrong in the afternoon and I crave for something, I guess sugars. My brain needs more time to adjust to the change.

I decided if I manage to eat healthy for 60 days then as reward I allow myself to buy a book. I just read a Dutch article about a research, that a person needs about 66 days to change behaviour/thoughts. If it goes wrong, then start over again. I manage earlier this year to hold one for about a month then it went wrong slowly. I did maintain to hold on to healthy breakfast and lunch.  I did maintain walking and started exercise again.

I have to look at those positive aspects too. Not everything went that badly. It is just one aspect to be honest, so not bad at all.

Today I go back on track with eating healthy diners, cut out refined sugars again, day 1. I can do it!
