Eating. Sleeping. Drinking. They’re all things we do, but a lot of us don’t do them properly.
Personally I am all too aware that my eating habits can be quite bad. Sure, when I’m home for a few days I’ll cook fairly healthy meals and eat plenty of salads, fruits and fresh vegetables. I’m picky about where I buy meat, so I tend to get pretty good quality meat from a small local butcher.
But I’m also aware of how much I misbehave, both when I’m travelling and when I’m either too tired or too busy to make the time to cook a proper meal.
Sleeping? I know I don’t get enough of it consistently. I can push myself to get more, but invariably I’ll slip up and go to bed way too late or have to get up way too early.
And drinking? Well that one is one that I can keep more under control. Or at least to a degree.
Sure, when I’m travelling I probably drink a little more than I would normally, but when I’m not “on the road” the most I’ll have is one or two beers in the evening and not most evenings.
There’s no simple way to “compensate” for this behaviour. It’s not like eating well on a Monday is going to magically fix the junk you ate on a Sunday ..
Personally I’m not too sure, but I know that if I’m going to prepare chips or potato wedges that I’ll use my actifry with only a small bit of olive oil for taste!
Posting about my bad habits won’t fix them, but maybe it’ll make me feel a little guilty .. In any case I know I’ll be eating homemade soup for the next couple of days so I can feel a little less guilty ..
