I think it’s important for me to let you guys know that I am a normal person who has good days and bad days, and times when I feel like I’m not on track with my health and fitness goals. It is normal. I’m not perfect. So I just wanted to do a quick post to talk about something that I’m struggling at the moment.
The main thing I’m struggling with is my diet. More specifically, sticking to my eating plan and not overeating. I eat healthy most of the time, but I tend to overeat (a lot!) and have poor self-control sometimes.
I know my mentality gets in the way. I have written myself a really good eating plan, but I find it hard to stick to especially when I have events or I catch up with my friends for coffee, or dinner, or breakfast, etc. I feel like if I eat bad and don’t stick to my meal plan then I have ruined it and I’ll just eat bad this week and start again next week. OR sometimes I haven’t even eaten badly yet and I still sabotage myself! Like last weekend my parents were visiting and we did a lot of eating out so at the start of that week I thought, oh I’m not going to stick to my plan this week because my parents are here so I’ll just start next week. And then next week rolled around and I made another excuse!
Yes, eating to a plan is hard when it comes to eating out and socialising. I know that my main problem is being able to stick to my meal plan, regardless of what social outings I’ve got that week. I do try my best to choose healthy options that compliment my meal plan when eating out, but I feel it’s still a battle. I just need to remember that if I go off track with my plan for one day, then it is OK and that I can get back on track the next day. I’m not going to be unrealistic and say that I will stick to my plan 100% because that would be near impossible! I like eating out and socialising with friends :) But I’m going to try not to let this change how I eat before and after.
Anyway, this is just a little bit of insight into what is going on in my life. I’d love to hear from you on things that you are struggling with at the moment. Talking about things and getting support helps you get through it! Please feel free to leave a comment below.
