So I kind of lost my drive to be on tumblr for a while after finding out my nan had breast cancer (again), but she’s had her surgery and she’s doing ok at the moment. I know that under going the genetic tests to find out whether I have a higher than average chance of getting breast cancer myself is going to be really hard, but instead of dwelling on that stuff I’ve decided to work harder on keeping myself fit and healthy.
We have a lot of catching up to do, so here it goes. Over Christmas I ate a tone of food and not good food either, greasy, sugary delicious food! I had a blast and I don’t regret it one bit! However, It’s definitely time to get back into the swing of things and get back on the clean eating train because although I had an amazing time, I can certainly see it wasn’t good for me!
My partner and I have been doing plyometrics together (he’s an ice hockey player so he does a lot of this) and it’s been killing me! I finally got back to the gym today to lift weights and I’ve been running/walking our adorable husky each day.
I no longer count calories! It was driving me insane. I found myself not eating certain foods, even healthy foods, because I was so scared of going over my calorie limit. Instead, I’m going to focus on eating clean, nutritious foods that will benefit my body and watching my portion sizes. So far so good and I’ve never felt more mentally stable about my eating!
I don’t really have a lot of “resolutions” for the new year, but I do have plans for the rest of my life and staying fit and healthy is definitely one of them!
