So I am sitting on the carpet of a room with a huge cage with guinea pigs simply munching on their hay. They have the good life, I feed them the healthiest food. In addition to their main food hay and their pellets, they get the best fruits and vegetables. All they really have to do is move so that way they'll probably poop better. Meanwhile, being a person, on top of the responsibilities of life, I have to work on eating well and exercising. It gets pretty tiring after a while. It get tiring, and I'm not even working that hard. I was watching TV this morning and the commercial for the Insanity workout came on. I really don't know how people can commit to it. I have a hard enough time commiting to a magazine subscription. I recently subscriped to Shape magazine and I'm not loving it. I love Self magazine however (great articles etc).
Nevertheless, some days I am just tired. It is very hard to go from someone that munches all day and is a complete junk food addict to someone that eats healthy between 50-75% of the time. Maybe it'll get easier with time. I know people say that healthy living isnt a diet, it is truely a lifestyle. When I hear that I think that I am screwed. I have never lost weight on a diet--I have actually gained (I'm terrible with consistency). I have found results with increasing my activity level and just trying to live healthier these last few months through sparkpeople. I feel like I'm just rambling now. Maybe I'm just procrastinating, typing instead of reading my many articles worth of work.
So, if you are out there, raise up your fist and shake it. Darn you healthy living, you do get tiring. But dang it, as long as I'm on sparkpeople, I will work towards these freakin' healthy living goals.
