I used to think that I had a pretty good, well balanced diet.
Turns out I was wrong.
I eat fruit/vegetables with every meal but truth is that is the extent of my ‘healthiness’. I love all the wrong things; chocolate, crisps, cream, wine, gin, deep-fried stuff, cheese, biscuits, cake- you get the picture. My major problem is I just can’t seem to say NO! And since starting my job working in the food team at a magazine (dream job!) I have realised that I am snacking a lot, and the rubber ring around my stomach seems to be ever-inflating.
It is also possible that I drink too much…
I have been reading Daily Garnish, a healthy, vegetarian blog for a while now and although I am in awe of Emily’s healthy transition it felt just too much like hard work. (congratulations to Emily and her husband for their new baby boy!)
Until I found Healthy Tipping Point and Carrots’N’Cake, two blogs written by more healthy, fit girls. Tina, from Carrots N Cake seemed to me to have a great balance of health and exercise, she eats meat, cookie dough, ice-cream and cakes but has a balanced diet and fits in a lot of exercise to counter-balance her treats. Plus she looks great.
So I have given myself a weekly healthy challenge.
