I started writing this post on a serious note but then I felt my heart racing again and I said “f*** it” we will do it my way.
Guys, I screwed up.
Let’s go back to pre-COVID era when I was working and it was cold windy and rainy and my office was having a nasty management fallout (thanks to a horrible flashed-inducing call from ex-boss), I was running on a rodent wheel on a speed of wifi.
Then nature slammed the brakes hard and I was suddenly ejected from the wheel and landing at my dad’s place.
My safe house.
Now tell me what would you do if you had no restrictions, no schedule, you could do whatever you want and didn’t have to worry about anything, at least for a few months.
Maybe you would make better decisions, but I assumed the position of a blanket that was meant to lay immobile on a bed or couch.
A blanket that has only one coping mechanism, EATING!
(there are more but don’t relate to this post)
So for the last 4 to 5 months, my only reason to exist was recklessly consuming food that’s close to being labeled poison.
Then there were random anxiety pangs.
Sometimes, I don’t register anxiety as a mental issue as it directly and indirectly harms my body sooner than my expectation.
It’s that train on the end of the tunnel that hits you when you are on your 3rd donut.
When I’m anxious I crave carbs and I binge like there is no tomorrow.
Cut to today, I have cycles of breakout, lethargy, excess 2 kgs, which isn’t that bad given the magnitude of carb intake.
But shit got serious when I noticed my breathing and heart rate isn’t normal.
10 minutes of cleaning and I was lying down panting like a giant walrus.
I have turned my body into a toxic waste dumping ground and it’s my fault.
No matter how strict the lockdown was, if I was getting food I could always opt for healthier options.
Honestly, healthy eating is simple just ask your grandparents and they will tell you a far healthier diet plan than the internet.
It’s common sense and basic knowledge of nutrition.
So, it’s time I start working on a damage control strategy since first you go to a zero from negative and I’m oceans-deep into negative right now.
Feel free to share your healthy diet tips in the comments below.
Healthier times start now!
