About two months ago, I decided to take my health more seriously. It has not been a walk in the park I tell ya. I worry about eating too little or eating too much. My biggest worry so far has been the equilibrum issues I have been having when I ride my motorcycle and that is no bueno. I am not able to fathom the thought of never being able to ride again and so I have to either figure out what is causing those issues and/or start eating properly.
I am not a fan of diets: I believe in eating “normally” in moderation. However, I have been coming across the school of thought that we should eat for nourishement and not for pleasure. Yeah, I know. My brain has still not figured that out. In essence, I know that the statement is true. Modern humans have gotten so used to having excess food at their disposal that eating has become a recreational activity: We cook for relaxation, we eat for emotional suppport, we feed to show love; food has taken on a very different perspective in our lives so different from that of our fore fathers. I beleive that my eating style is snacking and I think this is probably a…inset word here…that I inherited from my fore fore fathers who were scavengers. They searched for food and ate whateer they found immediately as there existed no methods of storage at the time. As a result they were constantly eating yet moving as well which allowed them to burn the calories they were consuming. This is my interpretation of their lifestyle and what I think pertains to me; When I snack constantly through out the day, I never get a chance to be hungry and avoid pigging out on unhealthy food or getting tempted by something I have no business eating. It worked wonderfully for me before I started working out until the fear of getting hurt forced me to start eating regularly and I belive I gained some weight as a result of this. A friend advised me to study an athlete I admire and for me it is Serena Williams. I was compared to her when I played college tennis and I believe we have the same body type. Getting truly healthy is not easy by any means but a journey on which you learn more about yourself and what works for self. I hope to look back in a year and smile at the difficilties I am now facing and truly relish the success that would have come from my hard work.
So I follow this person on Instagram and she posts clean and healthy food
