Truth moment, much like most of the country I am not eating the way I usually do to fuel my body. .
I have used every excuse the past couple weeks. . ✨I need to stock up on pantry stuff just in case ( ended up with a lot of FUN foods, which I totally support in my nutrition goals, but the amount we have in o pantry has been very tempting). . ✨At work as things get crazy I need to eat where and when I can ( meaning lots of “easy” on the go snack type foods) again there is a place for that but not daily/ several times a day. . ✨Also at work businesses are sending us nurses, pizzas, donuts, baked goods, BBQ, literally all the yummy stuff. Which I am so grateful for and it is super sweet but every day I have some and am like it’s just for today, well “today” has turned into everyday. . ✨we live in a tiny town with a tiny local grocery store. On a regular day they don’t have many options for produce. I usually go to the city and load up on produce for the week. Now, produce has gotten even harder to come by, so my veggie intake has been terrible. . ✨Being at home my kids as for cookies, or we decide to cook a more intense meal that includes more carbs. We are been gravitating to making comfort food, honestly because we are anxious, nervous, and all the emotional feels. This one is the hardest for me to admit bc I worked my butt of to learn how to manage and counter emotional eating. . ✨I have actually been scared to drink a lot of water at work because each time I use the bathroom, I have to touch several different handles, scrub my already raw hands like crazy.
But I know it’s important to my health and energy levels so I’m going to suck it up. .
So that being said, I am aware and I am in CONTROL of what goes into my body. For example, between fresh and frozen, all my veggie servings are happening every day! .
I am in CONTROL and I am going back to basics and eating the way I normally do, what makes me feel better, have more energy, and be the best I can be. .
