Ever since I started my Master studies two months ago, I have been eating so much crap due to a lack of time and motivation to eat healthy. Like really, you can’t even imagine all that I have stuffed my face with. And I enjoyed it, so there’s really no shame in it, but I do notice that I feel less and less energetic and that I have a lot of ‘bad’ moments in which I feel I just don’t have the energy to keep up with a 40-hour study and a 20-hour job. Which is busy, I know, but nothing I shouldn’t be able to handle if I’m in the right mindset. So yesterday I decided: I’m cutting the crap. 30 days, of which 4 allowed cheat days. Are you with me?
Fueling your body with the right foods can make such an incredible difference, we all know that! And now that I need the energy more than ever, I’m eating all this crap, which makes me even less energetic – something I really can’t be right now. I need all the energy I can get. Cutting back the crap for 30 days will be hard – oh yes, I will probably hate myself at some times for doing this, but hey, I’m quite sure the benefits will outweigh those insignificant moments of despising this.
I was tired of being tired (oh the irony) so I started YESTERDAY. I was already changing my mind about the whole idea half an hour after I came up with it, so I immediately told the #FITGIRLCODE crew about it so it would become a little embarrassing to change my mind after that.. And here I am writing this article, telling you thousands of Fit Girls about it. No way back for me anymore, huh?
Probably I will wake up more than once thinking “Oh God.. What have I done”. And you might too if you decide to join me. But let’s try to remind ourselves of the benefits of persevering – feeling fitter and better just and solely by cutting the crap! This is not about losing weight or getting that sixpack, this is about us feeling better. Cheat days are part of that, otherwise we’ll all go cray cray and eat the entire world’s stock of M&Ms (good for the company, not so good for us). So you get 4 cheat days, plan em whenever you want. Have a birthday or family dinner coming up? No problem. Just take one of your four wildcards and devour whatever comes in your path 😉
