While being stuck in my house for almost 3 weeks (and eating everything in sight), I started to become really lazy and had no motivation to do any physical activity.
However, I decided it was time to change that!
I wanted to do something that would force me to be active while also eating a lot healthier.
I came up with the idea of either trying out different workouts or something that affected my eating habits like trying a detox drink for a week or so.
I chose to do something that affected my health because being quarantined in my house gave me too much time on my hands, that wasn't being used up. I was spending countless hours watching Netflix and scrolling through TikTok. I found myself eating way too much junk food and not being productive at all, and it needed to stop.
Now, I had plans to vlog what I have been doing over the past week and to be honest, I keep forgetting. However, over this past week, I wanted to do something that forces me to be active, so I tried running about three miles a day. I wanted to do something that involved running because it gives me a chance to exercise and why not take advantage of the warm weather!
Honestly, I've felt so productive after going for a longer run than usual. It makes me want to keep going during the day, rather than sit around or take five naps. I've also been trying to eat a lot healthier and I've been feeling great and full of energy!!
For this upcoming week, I'm trying to cut out eating a lot of carbs and try to balance the foods I eat. I think it will be a small challenge trying to cut out carbs, but if it makes me feel better it's a challenge I'm willing to take.
