Food and I...we have a pretty tight bond. Especially the junk kind, he comes around quite often.
I struggle a lot with my restraint on junk food. Part of it is my upbringing, another part is that I've never in my life had to worry about what I eat, and lets be honest, most of the time it's easier.
I do eat quite large meals. One could argue if I were eating better food I wouldn't need to eat more because I would be filling up on nutrient rich food, I'd say they're probably right. So why can't I change my habits?
Diet is important here. My children have quite the healthy diet and have from the beginning. Bluey eats just about anything offered to him whilst Greenie is a little more fussier but still has a loves fruit more than a monkey.
But when it comes to the adults in the house? Not so much.
Since adding exercise to my lifestyle I have realised there is a lot that I cannot do simply by working out, that I need to make hard changes with what I'm putting into my body.
I've known this for the last couple of months and still, I cannot seem to shift these habits.
I am realising I eat emotionally far more than I have realised in the past. My mood definitely drives what I eat regardless of what has been pre-planned.
Food will always be my weak spot. I've accepted that. Now I've got to work on how I can work that to my advantage.
My problem area is my stomach and it won't change if I don't change what I'm filling my pie hole with. Preferably less pie.
Are you a comfort eater? A boredom snacker? A junk food addict? Maybe you've been there and can share some advice for those of us struggling to give it up?
