My family struggles with eating healthy all the time. We strive to keep a healthy household, but when we don’t have it in us to cook or we are away from the house, fast food is our staple. But now we have committed to refraining from the fast food for 30 days. Since soda is also a big weakness of mine I have decided to forgo that as well.
We were raised on junk food and it has been such a part of our adult lives as well. I wish it was easier to kick it all to the curb once and for all, but I need baby steps. I deal a lot with chronic pain and digestive issues and that leaves me not wanting to cook most of the time. This will be one of the most challenging things for the next 30 days. Generally if I am not feeling up to making a home-cooked meal, I have my husband bring home the fast food.
I plan to succeed and I hope to feel physically better. I have a doctor’s appointment the end of the month and I plan to weigh less than my last appointment. I wanted to share about the challenge because I believe it will keep me more accountable and give my a better chance at success.
What keeps you on a good path with healthy eating? Have you done similar challenges? I would also love to hear about any easy meals to make for when one is not inclined to cook.
