21 Day Challenge: June | Healthy Eating Habits

Friday, June 5, 2015

I can't believe it's already June. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was celebrating the new year and wondering what 2015 would bring for me. In my mind, I imagined I would be eating more of this:

And a lot less like this:

In January, I made a resolution to change my eating habits. That didn't pan out too well, so in February, I made a resolution to change my eating habits. In March, I made a resolution to change my eating habits. In April, I made a resolution to change my eating habits. In May, I made a resolution to change my eating habits. 

But I never did. I would try. I would eat super good for one week and then something stressful would happen or someone would want to go out to eat and YOLO would be at the back of my mind when ordering. Then I would say YOLO at every meal - true story, every single one of those photos above were taken after January 1st on my Instagram - and here we are today. I'm making a resolution in June to change my eating habits. 

Why now? What makes this time different

This past week, my grandma has been in the ICU because she stopped taking care of her body in a healthy way. She has a list of health problems and seeing her in the hospital because of these problems changed my mind. My grandma is the type of person who always has to be on the go doing something - whether it be shopping, visiting family, or a spur of the moment trip out of town. For the past 6 months to a year-ish though, she hasn't been the same grandma I grew up knowing. It's sad and seeing her lying in the hospital bed made me want so much more time with her and for her.

Basically, it made me realize that if I don't get my shit together, I'm going to continue down a path that will eventually end with me in a hospital bed with a grandchild wondering why I stopped taking care of myself. 

Okay, I know that got intense, but really that's what made me want to make a sincere change. This time, though, I decided to be a little more realistic and more committed with my change. People always say it takes 21 days to form a habit and I like a challenge. 

For the next 21 days, I will be limiting processed foods, introducing myself to a lot of fresh foods, and learning how to make eating healthy everyday an easy part of my life. There will probably be days that I'm tearing my hair out trying to stay away from fast food (I eat it waaaay more than I'd like to admit), but I know it'll be worth it in the end. 

If you want to keep up with me on my journey, be sure to subscribe to my blog on the left-hand sidebar or follow me on Bloglovin', Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest. I will be posting some recipes and tricks to make eating healthy easier. Andddd if you want to see some funny behind-the-scenes of me being a hot mess in the kitchen, add me on Snapchat at suzyq_smith.

  3. All it takes are small steps to lead to a big change! Just looked up Centergy and that sounds fantastic. Adding exercise to my daily routine is one of my priorities right now too and yoga has been at the top of my list of things to try.
