If I Eat Healthy My Kids Should Too

With cleaning up my diet...AGAIN, I have starting thinking about my daughters. I have always thought and have been told to let my kids live a little and eat food I can no longer eat. I agree with that to a certain point but in the long run I want my kids to understand and follow a healthy lifestyle like me.

A big struggle for me is saying no to the kids snacks and fast food I let them have. When I find that I am binge eating or having major caving its from the kids food in front of me. Not to mention how much of a fight it is to get the kids to eat baked foods and vegetables. It's no one's fault but my own. They are not old enough to buy their own food, cook, or even make selections so why would I get upset when they don't want green beans instead of fries.

The Struggle to Get Back on Track After You Fall Off

That's what I'm dealing with right now. I went so long without having a slip up and now that I am trying to get back to where I was it is a daily struggle. I have always been told it takes 21 days to form a habit and I am starting to believe them. I think there is a few factors that plays a part in my struggle but at the end of the day I am the only one that can make the right decisions for me. So what is my problem.

To be honest it is just easier to reach for that tasty piece of food I crave so much or binge on snacks. It's easier to not think about getting enough water or drink of any sort in. It is just easier to sit on the couch all day and relax than to push yourself while working out. But why do I do it when it's not what I want. I want to be in a position where I'm not tempted by foods and can say no. I want to be able to get up at anytime and get in a great workout without hating it. Soooo what the hell am I complaining about.

I'mmmmmm Baaaaaaack

These past few months have been an up and down roller coaster for me health and fitness wise. It started mainly when I hit my plateau, which I am still currently in. I have not been able to get under 273 and boy has that driven me crazy, but here's what I have been up to...

~ I did not complete the Whole30 challenge. I think that is part of what created my plateau in the first place. I strayed away from what was working for me food wise. I was pretty balanced with my food choices and although Whole30 isn't a bad choice it just shifted things for me. I think it may have threw me off of my balanced plan.
