Getting Healthier

So... I'm sitting at my desk trying to figure out what the hell to blog about. I could write about relationships... nah, that's too easy. Current Events... nah, I don't feel like debating right now. Celebrities... nah, I got TOO much to say.

Then I redirect my attention to the new Gatorade G2 (Grape flavor which is surprisingly good!) and I've realized, I'VE COME A LONG WAY WITH GETTING HEALTHIER.

See my diet consisted of nothing but soda, junk food, steak, greasy chicken, which in my opinion, wasn't bad when I was eating it, but my body was like... "Can I get some veggies? Some healthy food at least?" And I responded.

I went to Cali for a weekend in April, and my grandfather's wife is like a health food junky. She eats health food like it's the best thing in the world (I HATE healthy food) and she has nothing but fitness and health books/magazines laying around her house. I came across this book called 21 Pounds in 21 Days. I asked her about it and she said it's a detox program, basically you're fasting with juices and soup. Now me, I don't need to loose any weight, I mean, 10 pounds is ok, but at the end of the day, if I loose 21 pounds, people will think I'm sick, so I decided to squash the fasting because 1) I was thinking of doing it while school was still in, and midterms, plus not eating solids dont mix well, and 2)Getting rid of solids is HARD! I love to eat, and since my metabolism hasn't caught up to me yet, I'm gonna keep loving to eat haha

So I'm battling myself right now. I need to get healthier BAD. I started working out, and I've already seen an improvement on myself mentally, and physically, of course. I'm excited! But, getting use to eating healthy foods is a challenge :(

i can somewhat relate to this. i decided back in december to change how i ate and to implement a new lifestyle. So i stopped eating beef, pork & dairy and i can honestly say i feel better. i've been eating a lot more vegetables and foods that are more apart of a balanced diet rather than just eating anything. i'm not trying to lose weight, cause like you, if i was to lose weight i would look sick, but i am finding easing myself into a healthier way of eating is proving to be quite beneficial.

I love to eat too..but I mix in healthy food into the equation tho to even things out. And I exercise alot because I know my metabolism won't always be in overdrive like it is now. Thats what I do.

Liquid fasting?? bleh...

And that G2 is good ain't it??

@ One Soulful Negro- I eliminated pork and beef from my diet a long time ago and it felt so goood to get rid of it lol, although I cheat sometimes and eat oxtails :X

@ Charles- Yea liquid fasting is wack... I'm scared to do it. That grape G2 is the best man!!

@Philosopher- I exercise at AU and sometimes the track by my house... I need a workout parter too!!!

I feel you on this one. I don't really eat bad...okay yes I do but I really need to start eating more veggies and less sweets.

I can relate. My husband and I just hired a nutritional consultant because we're both at a loss when it comes to figuring out the right eating plan for us...especially since I drink wine like water.
