Sometimes I get pretty off track with my nutrition for a week or two weeks or hell, even a month and I kind of just roll with it because I always get back on track and I think it’s better for my mental health to embrace it as opposed to shaming myself for it.
Oh my god thank you😍
Had planned a 5 mile run this morning. Having a dodgy morning with the crohn’s though, don’t know if it’s a good idea. For goodness sake!
"Run for 20 minutes and you’ll feel better. Run another 20 and you might tire. Add on 3 hours and you’ll hurt, but keep going and you’ll see—and hear and smell and taste—the world with a vividness that will make your former life pale."
So last night I went to a meeting
The meeting was called ‘Ditch the Diet’. It’s a UK based group only started last year that focuses on promoting healthy lifestyles and forgetting the diet mentality. I feel inspired and want to share it with everyone. It isn’t a short term fix, it’s preparing you for forever with the tools of healthy eating and positive mindset, to be happy and confident with weight loss as a side effect, not a main focus.
I found it enlightening, on going in to the meeting I was thinking I was only there to support my friend and I was doing just fine on my own. However, I quickly realised a lot of it applied to my way of life as well. I signed up to 6 months of weekly meetings where we don’t get weighed but where we learn more about health and get to share stories. I am really looking forwards to starting this.
You can read more about it on that link and download a free ebook to read over. I think it’s worth it.
Ran home from work again, this time much easier than last night. I did have to stop a couple of times but I think it may have been lack of energy after being on my feet and extremely busy at some parts for a majority of the day. My goal was to run 8miles this week by Sunday and I’ve already achieved it. Going to run some more tomorrow. Woo!
