Eat crap. Crave crap. Feel like crap. Look like crap.
This is the cycle that I enter into when I start to eat a lot of junk food. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for indulgence. I actually indulge a little too much, which is the problem!
Unfortunately, I am not one of those people who craves healthy food. I’m jealous of other health bloggers who crave salads, smoothies, vegetables, etc. To be honest, I just don’t. I don’t crave salad, vegetables, or even fruit these days. I’m not afraid to be honest with you guys: I crave Cheetos, Doritos, chocolate, ice cream, crackers…all the time!
I find that if I indulge in a little too much “junk,” I find myself craving it even more. The more I crave it, the more likely I am to give in if the food that I’m craving is available.
Lately I’ve been indulging in crap just a little too much, and I’ve been finding myself feeling crappy as a result. I don’t have very much energy, I’m bloated, and most importantly, I get upset with myself. I feel that I have let myself down, yet I do it all over again.
Finally, when I feel like crap, I look like crap. This not only includes weight gain (which is definitely a problem), but it affects my overall confidence. When I feel that I have let myself down, it shows. I am not comfortable in my own skin, and that’s definitely not a good feeling.
SO, what am I going to do about it? I’m making a more conscious effort to include produce at every meal, even though I don’t want it (I don’t even want fruit- weird, I know). So far so good- my dad bought me strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, carrots, salad, and a watermelon.
Here’s to eating better food, craving better food, looking better, and most importantly FEELING better!
