Hello my lovely readers! 💜
Welcome back for starters!! ⭐️ I’m just starting to get myself back into the swing of things when it comes to blogging so I apologise if I’m a little rusty! Bare with me haha, in the meantime I thought I’d write another little entry for all of you. ☺️
… So today’s post is going to be a little different but I’m sure it can still relate to almost each and every one of you in some way.. maybe it’s now.. maybe you’re finding yourself in the same situation I am!
Alrighty here goes, so I have a little confession to make… this past month I have been bingeing to max!! Takeout every other night, tubs of icecream, anything naughty that tickled my fancy really! At first I didn’t really take much notice of my food intake but my god the other evening it really hit me when I completely finished off my SECOND multipack of kitkats in almost a couple days. I knew I had a problem on my hands. I’m hoping I caught myself just in time before I hit the point of no return!!
Okay so now I’ve come clean about my recent kitkat obsession, I wondered if this had happened to anyone else. So as it’s October and as you all know Halloween at the end of this month, I thought I would go to the store and just have a look around a see if they had any cheap facepaints so that I could practice my makeup before it’s officially Halloween. The usual, what I didn’t plan on was the amount of discounts and deals on the sweets and chocolate. 🍫 🍭 Of course I forgot people still go trick or treating so there were hundreds and hundreds of bags of candy bars and all sorts of delicious treats. Now being the easily persuaded person I am I grabbed a couple of bags and rushed myself home. I began writing an assignment that was due over the next couple of days, I soon realised it was 2am and I was reaching for what I thought was my second bar of chocolate only to find that the entire bag was filled with chocolate bar wrappers… I had demolished them all without even realising!!! I felt so ashamed and this is where I knew I had a problem!
So as of today I have decided to make the firm decision that I am going to try my hardest to eat healthier and actually go for a run once and a while and maybe even the gym??? – I have no excuses really, I have a membership to one that has 3 levels of equipment (I’m just so lazy to walk there haha). So I was just wondering if you lovely people had any advise or either health plans/ exercise routines or food prep to help get me motivated!?! I don’t wanna feel like I’m doing this alone, but I’m so tired of feeling like a couch potato, especially since moving to the states all I do is take the subway everywhere and eat because it’s all so available to me!
I feel like I need to make a change to my every day life, and yes I know you’re probably thinking oh let’s see how long this lasts, because let’s be honest we’ve all said we were going to be healthier and start the gym at one point and here we are a year or 2 later back at square one. Saying the same things over and over again “diet starts tomorrow” and then you find yourself instead of having a cheat meal, that soon becomes a cheat day, and then that cheat day becomes a cheat week… and so on… you get the picture haha. I’ll be the first one to admit this is me aswell, but this time I feel like I can do this! Not drastically change my lifestyle but you know just make it a little less traumatic in the sense that I can finish off 2 bags of kitkats in 2 days 😳 c’mon that must be some sort of piggy record!! 😂😫
So if you know of any advise to help get me started please feel free to leave me a comment! Even just a simple ‘you got this girl’ could be the difference between me getting a Big Mac and me going for a run 😂😂
There’s still hope for me!
Do you have any naughty treat obsessions too? – let me know!! (You know you have them, please don’t make me feel bad alone haha).
All my love,
