My health has never been a general priority for me.
I used to work two full time jobs and ate whatever food (usually junk) I came across when I had time to eat. And that mentality has stuck with me over the last few years.
My family eats well – but being the vegetarian in a sea of meat eaters means I prepare dinners that I don’t eat, and then I do the the dishes and clean up and before I know it, I’m too tired to cook my own meal.
As of writing this, I’m 5’2” and weigh 160 pounds. Which means I’m overweight.
Now what does this have to do with reading? Isn’t this my reading blog?
My reading has been a sporadic this year , my mental health has declined, I’m always tired, always sore, and just not happy.
So part of being the best reader/blogger that I can be also means being the best ME I can be.
I’m writing this partially because I really struggle with healthy eating and routine, and maybe putting the words out there will help me stick to them. But I’m also writing this because I know I’m not alone, I know I’m not the only one who struggles with eating right and their weight, and I want to share my story and read other peoples stories as well.
So what am I going to do?
Last night I started a new skin care routine, something I’m also terrible at keeping up with.
I’m working on a meal prep guide and at home work out plan this weekend, and hopefully I can get it all sorted out! Then it’s meal prepping, planning, and waking up earlier to focus more on me.
Here’s to finishing 2020 loving myself again.
