Hey, it’s Delana! How are you all doing?
Okay, so lately I haven’t been working out. I haven’t been eating the right things either. I feel really bad about it. I do.
I’m currently in a very weird place in my life right now. I have a roof over my head, but it’s not my roof. I have a job, but it pays very poorly. My life is extremely subpar and change is overdue. Depression may or may not have set in (okay it has). There are various reasons I’ve gotten to this point but I won’t bore you with those details. Yawn.
The important thing is to get back on track. Being poor is a problem. It’s true, produce and all that healthy stuff costs a lot. Time is also a problem. You get home from work, exhausted and/or you have to do various other things and cooking is an afterthought. I already forgot to talk exercise because I’m thinking about what I want to eat, I’m tired and I have other things to do. Oops, I didn’t make my lunch for tomorrow so I guess I’ll order out. Now it’s time for bed and exercise became something that wasn’t even an afterthought. It was something I didn’t think about at all.
Our bodies don’t like this and can’t deal.
Healthy ingredients do cost more, but there are ways around it. Meal plans! I used to pick out recipes I like, buy my lunch and dinner items and prepare them for the week on Sundays. Make your own take out.
As for exercise. I’m a night person. I feel more comfortable exercising at night around 6PM or 7PM. I don’t like getting up at 6AM, I’d much rather stay up until 6AM. That’s just me. Do what works best for you.
Bad Fittie or Why I Have Been Failing at Being Healthy - This is the title of my blog post because I’ll do everything right for a long time then I’ll start slacking at one thing, then another until I’m not doing anything healthy anymore. There are times I don’t want to prepare my meals ahead of time. There are times I don’t want to exercise.
Now, because I didn’t want to do those things and slacked off I’m tired all the time and eating bad things.
I feel like I’m in this upward/downward spiral trap I can’t get out of. Hmmm….well life is a process and I need to find a healthy process that I can stick with!
And, here I go…
On a path that works best for me. :)
