As you may have noticed by now, I am not always the healthiest person. I discuss my love for such foods as gumballs, cereal, and cookies on a blog called Gettin’ My Healthy On. Yes, I have realized this. No, I do not believe the word “healthy” is a synonym of “sugar”.
I started this blog to document my journey of healthy eating and staying fit. Sometimes I run a marathon; sometimes I don’t workout for a week (I’ve been busy, okay?!). I can eat quinoa like it’s my job, and the next week I may eat 500 cookies.
I’m basically just trying to find a good balance. The fitness thing comes a little bit easier to me than healthy eating. I can usually make myself go run, but sugar tastes too good to avoid. I want to eat clean with some room for a milkshake from time to time—I choose my sanity over diet perfection. Since this blog is where I talk about my journey, I discuss both the good and the bad.
This post is my confession — I strive to get my healthy on, but it’s definitely not always the first thing on my mind.
Awhile ago I wrote about my diet intervention, where I wanted to incorporate the 80/20 rule—80% clean foods, 20% splurge. There hasn’t been an update because I’m basically at the same point as then—still working on the balance. There may be little progress, but it’s definitely still a goal I’m working towards. Sometimes my focus is just a bit…off. (I know you are all very concerned about my food consumption.)
Anywho, there’s a reason why I blog more about fitness than healthy eating. I’ve seen much more progress with running than I have in cleaning up my diet. Nutrition is something I have always struggled with.
My name is Katie, and I’m a healthy living blogger who eats like crap a bit too often. What can I say?
