Destination: Healthy lifestyle (WK1)
For a long time now, I've wanted to be healthy. I've wanted to eat foods that benefited and nourished my body and do exercise that made my body stronger. This desire originally stemmed from a longing to lose weight, which stemmed from a longing to be happy. Of course like almost every teenage girl today, I still want to lose a bit of weight, but I've realised that being obsessed with being skinny is definitely not the path to happiness. I wish I could tell you this so that you too believe it, but I think it's something you have to learn for yourself.❤️
But anyway. I want to start this series of blogs in hope that it will inspire you too to begin your journey towards a healthier life. We can go through the ups and downs together and I'd love to hear about your progress, so don't be shy to DM me on our Instagram or leave a comment below! I'll be sure to reply to you all!
So, every Saturday I plan to update you on my progress for the week; what I ate, decisions to be healthy, exercise I did, things that made me happy, and so on. I'm also doing this because I've realised that achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle cannot be done over night; it's a process.
Today can be marked as the starting point of my journey, so I'm not going to inform you about all I've done this week, because to be honest, you don't want to know...
I don't know about you, but I've been stuck in the draining cycle of trying to eat healthier and workout...and then giving up and eating even worse than before...and then feeling guilty and trying to eat healthy and workout again. Let me be the first to say, this gets you nowhere!
So how am I going to avoid this cycle? Well, firstly I've accepted that I cannot be a health and fitness expert overnight. You can't restrict yourself too much at the start. So I've decided to take small steps. Slowly I'm going to replace my Nutella toast with fruit or oatmeal or healthy pancakes!
I hope you decide to join me on this journey!
rEmember to look aFter your body! It spends every second looking after you!
