As I sit here on my parents back porch on this beautiful Sunday afternoon enjoying a soda and potato chips, all I can think about is how toxic both of these things are for my body and brain. I have seen so many health documentaries about detoxing, juicing, and all natural diets, but for some reason, as hard as I try, I cannot break these horrible eating habits. Not too long ago I went about three months of eating really clean. During that time I had much more energy, shed quite a few pounds, and just felt better all around. So why did I come back to eating junk? Quite honestly, because it was cheap and easy. I never had to prepare anything, and could eat a lot of food for a lot less money. I don't like making assumptions but I am going to go out on the limb and say many others share this same mentality. But as I sit here and think back when I went through my few months of eating clean, all I can think about is how I want to feel that way again. I think if I start back on the right track I need to not just change my eating habits, but change my thought process as well. Before I was doing it mostly to lose weight, once I lost some weight I went back to being lazy again. Definitely not the way to do it. Also, I kind of went full force right from the beginning and maybe I should take things a bit slower. Maybe even create a game plan. As I do this, I may share some things with you along the way. This will not be one of those weight loss journey/diet blogs, but I may share some methods here and there that make healthy living a bit easier and maybe even share some recipes that I try out and love. Bottom line is I want to enjoy life, and being healthy is a huge part of that. So there, I guess this means I am turning over a new leaf. Yes I confess I did finish the soda, but now I blogged about this whole eating healthy thing so now I have to do it. Here we go!
