To begin? Apologies, I know I said I would be back on shortly, and that was maybe 2 months ago, but I guess at the time I didn’t believe I would be without internet for two months! So apologies first of all to all my loyal followers, but most of all… sorry to my body. Why? I’ll tell you why, and it starts with 6 KILOGRAMS OF WEIGHT ON MY BODY WHY. Now it’s most likely a mixture of things as to why this has occurred, but I can start of by saying not having Tumblr there *as silly as this may sound* I didn’t start my day off and end it with going through inspirational blogs, healthy food ideas, great exercise tips and most of all great motivational blogs. I also didn’t have a bunch of loyal followers sending messages of inspiration that a could read as I pleased, they just sat in my inbox (L) and lastly I had lost my reason to write down what I ate everyday. Now this adds up, BIG TIME. And I am writing this post, ashamed, upset, crushed and with my low self esteem and binge eating disorder back and on full throttle. Fresh start?

do you have any tips to help with overeating especially at dinner time??
Overeating at dinner, definitely a problem of mine, however I have come to realise this problem is at it’s worse when I have not consumed enough calories AND nutrients throughout the day. Calorie starving early in the day WILL catch up at some point, mainly at night and suddenly there will be an overwhelming need to fill the rest in, this is the same with nutrients though, you may have consumed TWICE your daily calorie requirements, however if they didn’t come from nutrient filled foods, your body/mind will be left still craving the nutrients.
If you are doing these and still left over eating, make sure you’re having your dinner AS dinner, not as something to do whilst watching TV, on the laptop, etc. always make sure you have it at the table each night, with no distractions and concentrate and enjoy your food. Otherwise if you’re constantly eating whilst watching TV, etc. You will crave food every time you sit down to watch, just out of habit. Reading or just keeping yourself busy after dinner, or even going to bed early gives you less chance to eat. Filling up on tea/hot drinks pre and post meals may halt any exess food cravings. Hope this helps and sorry for the rant!
Hi Guys, just a quick note that my posts will probably be all over the place for next week as I'm moving house, AND starting a new job haha I know stuff that. Sadly this also means my eating/exercising will probably be all over the shop too :(h
The more I articles, research the health/diet industry along with seeing trends for the Gen Y and below, I am constantly confronted with and slightly disturbed by how much our need/desire for instant gratification of everything is putting us well behind our parents in all…
So had netball training yesterday, and unlike maybe a few years ago when I was a fit little bunyip, I am VERY aware that I’m probably one of the more unfit girls on the team (CHANGING THAT!). However I am also aware whilst most are there to get training ‘over and done with’ I’m seeing it as part of my workout, and I’m there and determined to push myself. So when we had a little ‘competition’ to see who could lay down and hold their legs above the ground for the longest time, I accepted that challenge, knowing that whilst I may not be physically prepared to win it, I was mentally prepared to try my hardest. One minute in and there are three girls left, myself and two ‘fitty boom fitties’ (Why yes, made up term, how could you tell?). Most had given up not because they were shaking like an earthquake, but sheer lack of willpower, however here I am jackhammering along with every muscle screaming at me and now the second last left, looking across I could see the other girl wasn’t even shaking yet AND was determined, so at 1.30secs I dropped, but I’m proud, and I think I proved to myself how much strength is in willpower alone.
Clean eating is a diet program based on the idea that the best way to eat is to abundant- ly enjoy whole foods — that is, foods as close to their natural state and you can get them. This means eating fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins…
