If I'm not blogging, I'm eating. That's the truth...
But after years of straight indulgence, I was out of control. I was gaining so much weight to the point where it was really affecting my confidence. Many people don't think that I'm overweight when they see me, but for my body type, I was unhealthy and I definitely saw the consequences.
The biggest change I did for myself was to start exercising. This was NOT easy for me to start. I tried to avoid it by doing quick diets or taking "fat-burning" pills, but I never saw any results. I gave myself so many excuses to talk myself out of working out, but finally, enough was enough.
I realized that if I didn't work my butt off (literally), I would never see the results that I want. Because I had spent years indulging in bad eating habits, drinking/partying, not getting enough sleep, and etc., it was going to take me equally long to undue the damage that I had done to my body.
Maintaining a constant routine of working out (cardio and strength-training), I started to see and feel results. And as I saw the results from my efforts and hard work, it became a goal to become generally healthier and more fit. And in turn, it became a lifestyle. Not only am I now more active than I have been in years, but I have also changed my eating habits and the way I think about meals (NOT the event of the day... lol).
What's important to me is that I don't have rules on eating. I believe you cannot become healthier and fit by giving yourself rules. That's a big no-no! What you need to change is your lifestyle. Have a goal and work toward it and keep at it. Do not give up! You will see the results that you worked hard for and deserve.
Now that that's all said and done, I still love to eat. I'm a foodie and I'll alway be. One of my guilty pleasures is looking at food pictures, either ones that people have posted or my own...
