Eating clean & sticking to it

Yesterday, I had my health check on joining Alpine Health Club, it was honestly, the most detailed health check I’ve ever had. I had sticky things stuck everywhere to check my fat/water/muscle I had blood pressure and lung checks, the results were scary..

My lungs and heart are both working perfectly, but I was extremely dehydrated, and had very little water in my system, and this worried me as I thought I’d been drinking enough water…I hadn’t..and this was the reason why my eyes felt so dry, I’ve been tired and just feeling generally sluggish.

So last night before bed, I drank 850ml of water, and woke up feeling refreshed and ready for my day. I started the day with some Alpen Granola and a cup of Pukka Cleanse Detox Tea.

Sugar has always been my downfall, I crave sugar, I have a sweet tooth rather than savoury…I’m one of those that would rather have ice cream for dinner rather than an actual meal. This needs to stop, and reading ‘Sarah Wilson I quit sugar for life’ has been such a good example on how I can actually quit sugar. The positivity from Sarah appears as a natural trait, I can’t wait to read more and carry on with a sugarless diet.

My advise on keeping to your diet, or healthy new lifestyle would be, keep a diary, a detailed diary of how your days been, how much you’ve craved your bad foods, why you didn’t choose to eat them, why you feel good or bad, and learn from your own diary. Think of where you would like to be in 12 months time, how fit and strong you want to be, and most of all, what mood you want to be in. Food is one of the main causes of what mood you are in..eat bad, feel bad..

So eat well, feel well and change your bad habits. I am!
