Steps to a healthier me in 2015

IMG_888212When the new year arrives, I tend to make resolutions that I don’t always keep so I have decided I will no longer resolute…

Aaaaanyway, I am now creating goals for myself – ones that are achievable and realistic. While I want to eat healthier, the thought of veggies and no carbs puts me into this panic mode which ultimately means I go crazy and eat every fattening thing out there.

Oh,  but hello super-sugar-fat-laden-glazed donut, would you like to meet my tummy?

For a while now I haven’t been happy with what I have been eating and I know it is time to change. As a working woman – I always used the excuse that I didn’t have any time to eat healthy and besides , it is so expensive! But truth is, these excuses don’t hold any water anymore. I am determined to change my diet and most importantly, the way I think about food.

Trust me , this isn’t about being a stick figure but more about being healthy and feeling better. I want to have more energy and be happy with the choices I make. When I got married two years ago, I thought I would be the same weight forever but since then I have gained a few kg’s and also made bad food decisions (too much take away and fizzy drinks). I know that I am allowed to indulge sometimes but for the most part ,I need to take action to create a healthier me.

I am making small changes to my diet , by drinking more water; choosing wholewheat/rye bread; introducing more veggies at dinner and  eating more fresh fruit during the day. I am also reducing my sugar intake and exercising more. My biggest sacrifice though has to be cutting out cheese from my diet (bye bye cheese 😦 ). You see, I have been having cheese on toast for breakfast ever since I can remember and a few weeks ago I just, well, dumped it.

Cheese has had the worst effect on my tummy (I will spare you the details) but suffice to say, after eating it I didn’t feel so good. I guess this was my body’s way of saying it didn’t like it. It’s not easy to change something that has been part of your routine but it certainly is possible. I know that now.

This is the only body I have and it is time I took care of it.

  1. Believe me, it’s not cheese. Unless it’s some kind of super refined one. It’s sugar that you need to cut loose. The one in every drink, you know.

    1. Sugar is definitely not my friend, I know that – but cheese does all sort of things to my body making me feel boated and quite sick. I guess everyone has a different take on it , but my body doesn’t seem to like cheese at all. Of course, I know this because I have this reaction as soon as I eat it. I know my body better than anyone else and after a VERY long time of seeing this reaction, I let it go.
