Let's Talk Food and Stress

So I have been a little on edge the past few weeks. It is no secret that I am a planner and a type-A personality to a fault, so while I try my best to roll with the punches I am feeling a little flustered about the whole thing. And with no happy running endorphins to keep me balanced either - I have morphed into a little ball of stress. 

Stress has always been something that wreaks havoc on my routine and my diet. Combine that with my inevitable negative feeling towards this defective body of mine, and you've got a recipe for disaster.

I have found myself doing everything from skipping meals due to tummy troubles and lack of appetite, to later comforting myself with all the wrong foods. It's a vicious cycle, its unhealthy, and I know better.

So this week I am making a promise to my body...
 "I promise to take care of myself. And love and respect my body for all that is does and all that it will do in the coming months. We are in this together!"

It's a Happy Heart Restart!

This week I Promise...
1. To cut out all processed food. I have been reaching for a lot of processed meals for conveince sake. So this week me and my little defective bod are fueling up with healthy whole foods!
2. I will be tracking my meals on My Fitness Pal (Profile: KSibaBishop - if you are really curious) and posting pics on Instagram. I am not a big calories counter, but when you have to write down that you just ate an entire bag of M&Ms it reminds you that you are not exactly sticking to the plan.

3. Vitamins are a MUST! I always get lazy with this stuff when I am mad at my body. But they are going help give me an advantage while I heal so I need to stock up!
4. Hydrate!! I have slacking big time in this department, but I got my water bottle stocked and glued to my side. My goal is 3 liters daily.

It is time to get back on track and face this next great misadventure Strong and Healthy!
Because Strong is Sexy and Healthy is Fabulous!
Let's do this!
