Staying Healthy, Being Healthy

Well hello day 26 of the writing challenge, thanks for giving me a topic I dread talking about. That topic happens to be, “write about an area in your life that needs improvement.”  Ugh, why do you have to do this to me writing challenge! So, here is to staying healthy, and being healthy. (NOT)

My Trouble With Staying Healthy, Being Healthy

I am horrible with healthy habits. I have tried all those quick fixes and what not, but I always give them up. Now, I do have some healthy habits, but I don’t always stick to them. I don’t drink enough of anything actually. Healthy food usually escapes my radar, and exercise is not my things.

Yes, I get that fitness itch and I’ll go for about a week or so, but then I’m done. I don’t know if I get bored or just get annoyed with doing it every day, but I end up giving up and moving on. The good thing is, according to my doctor I am healthy, despite being overweight and not always eating right. Do I need to make changes? You bet! Am I going to make those changes? Well, let’s find out!

Staying Healthy, Being Healthy

I am going to start exercising, by doing one of my favorite things, and that is walking. I love going on walks and getting in touch with nature. (I know that’s a nerdy statement!) I am also going to try to do yoga again, but I don’t see it working out. Heck, last time I endured yoga, I laughed the entire time and my dogs were usually all up in my business!

Staying Healthy, Being Healthy

As far as eating healthy, I don’t always do that bad. Fast food and restaurants are going out the window, and I am going to start cooking more meals at home. Lunches will be pre-made and I will load up on water! That is a must in my book!

Story time:
This weekend, I went out of town for my nephew’s birthday party. It was outside at a local park, and boy was it humid and hot! Hello, Texas! I guess I didn’t think about it much because I didn’t feel sick or anything until I got in the car to head home. My mistake was not drinking any water. Hello, dizziness, throwing up, and dehydration! I never want to feel that way again! 

So, I am picking up water drinking as a sport! Water drinking is going to be part of my daily routine and I am going to rock this sport! Now, you’re probably saying, “um Jessie that’s not a sport, you’re just drinking water.” Yeah well, I need to make it more exciting, so I will actually like drinking it (hehe).

Now, will I stick with all this? I hope so but… So far, I have had 0 ounces of water! Oh, and lunch was not healthy, but hey it’s only day one! I’ll get there!

Wish me luck! I’m gonna need it! Also, check out this post

    Good luck! And keep going. I’m actually on the same phase trying to stay healthy. I started yoga again…. 😁 I m trying to cook and not order pizza. The struggle is to stay consistent 😑

    Yeah, I’m trying to be a little bit healthier too since I stopped fencing – the sport, not actually putting up a fence. So far, I cut out soda…in favor of juice 😀

    It’s a start >.>

      I have always wanted to try fencing! That is a great start, I cut out soda and usually go for juice as a replacement 🙂

    Something that helps me is trying to drink 8oz of water every hour. When I started connecting it to the time on the clock, it really improved my water drinking habit!

      I may have to try that!
