So for the last little while I’ve been trying to just be conscious of my food intake and try to eat healthy. Of course, this hasn’t worked, or you wouldn’t hear me constantly complaining about being in a cult led by a very manipulating breakfast sandwich. I’ve been trying to walk around and get exercise (one hour a day of activity, even walking, is my goal) but you know what I’ve realized?
The heavier you are, the harder it is to work out ie walk up stairs.
The silver lining is that getting my heart rate up is very easy, so one flight of stairs can be quite the cardio boost!
How I think I look walking up the stairs:
How I actually look:
Anywho, all this to say that I can buy carrots and grapes as much as I want, currently I cannot actually force myself to eat them. And honestly, that’s what I’ve been trying to do on and off for years. Ideally I would eat mostly fruits and vegetables except at dinner or maybe eggs at breakfast. But so far… my will to eat other things in the moment is SO much stronger then my will to curb my appetite and eat right over time. I know its an issue with instant gratification, and instead of fighting it by appeasing it little by little, small snack by small snack, I say, KILL IT WITH FIRE.
Which leads me to intermittent fasting. No snacks (except when its actually okay to snack, not just when I’m bored or should drink water). I’ll be writing more about this soon, but now you know the why behind this endeavor of mine.
Gaining control over my hunger, while giving up trying to control my snacking.
