Eating Healthy: My love-hate relationship with salads...

Happy Friday friends!

Since today was - I told one of the girls that was picking up lunch that I really needed to eat a salad.

Doesn't that just look...yummy?!

*shakes head no*

I just don't get it. I want to be healthy and skinny so bad but I don't want it bad enough most of the time to force myself to eat things like this most of the time. I want the full fat, high sugar food all the time! At least right now...very little self control.

I've had periods in my life where I've managed a healthier weight...still not skinny, but I was at least only a little over average and not obese. My short 4'11 and 3/4" frame should be 120 MAX and I haven't been there since I was 12! You know this picture? I think Kate Moss quoted it and people ran with it.

See how there's a little word crossed out and added. Healthy. We'll get back to that.

I haven't ever been skinny as an adult. I was just coming into my female figure when I put on my first set of 20 pounds and if I would have been able to maintain right there, that would have been AWESOME! But it just didn't happen. After my first set of 20, came the second and third. Even in high school I was the fat cheerleader, happy but not as healthy as I should be.

What really needs to change, is my thought process. I need to alter my brain toward something more like this.

With this one I don't have an excuse like I've never known the feeling...but I CAN understand that the delicious food I just stuffed myself with is now heavy in my stomach and not so pleasant.

Now this one...when I go on a date I won't order a salad, but I know that most of my bad decisions are the things I eat later at night or when nobody is around. Sure, I snack with friends but more often than not they're there to help me make better decisions. I severely lack self control most of the time and not just with food.

I know I'm harder on myself, and that there are lots of changes to be made when eating healthier. I just always imagine how much easier it would be if I could get the body I want without all the hard work, lol. The definition of lazy right there!

Thanks for listening to my healthy food binge rant! Here's to another week of being human and not being perfect. How about some jams?!

  1. I have been struggling with this as well. I'd like to lose about 10 pounds but I don't want to be miserable and hating life. I know some people have success when they choose a "splurge" day once a week. It helps to know that you can have what you want, just not today.

  2. Oh yes. I can understand that. I have an everlasting battle with my thunder thighs. And recently a black man told me I was "thickalicious." It made me want to only eat kale for like a month.
