I never thought this day would come…

Ok, so I am a self proclaimed junk food adict. I love sweets, sugar, soda, pizza, hamburgers, mashed potatoes, and anything with cheese (well, almost, I hate broccoli YUCK!) I always heard people say things like “when you start to eat better, your body feels better and you won’t want to eat the bad things, and you will crave good things.”
Well, I never believed this, I mean who doesn’t love a good burger and fries or milkshake? Well, I have started to get to where this really does apply to me! I honestly NEVER thought it would happen. I have by NO MEANS “arrived.” I still don’t like veggies that much and I still love junk, but I crave it less, and crave better stuff more. Also, not even that, but I will say “hhmm a milkshake sounds so good” but then I will think “wait..that will be a ton of calories and make me feel so gross when I run tomorrow.” etc. It’s like I actually think before I eat (sometimes). For instance, when we were in Disneyworld for the 1/2 marathon, we ate SO BAD, greasy, yummy, food. Well, by the end of the trip I was CRAVING fruit. FRUIT! me!!! It was so odd but true! I defiantely still have a ways to go, but I feel like I am on the right track, and it feels great! Realizing how differnt foods affect my runs or just my day in general really help me to not be so sluggish!
So, give it a try. If someone like me can notice a difference, I know you can, too!!! Now if I could just figure out a way to like salad….

  1. Isn’t it great how running will do that to you? Although there is nothing better after a half or full marathon than a good juicy burger and fries! :)

  2. That’s awesome Heather!

    I get like that sometimes, but I still could ALWAYS eat junk food anytime lol, especially sweets. It’s a constant challenge.. but I definitely do know what you mean about craving other things, I eat a lot more fruits and veggies now more than I ever did, and I will feel really unbalanced if I don’t get them!

  3. Yay, it is a great feeling! Congrats! Though no matter how much I workout, my sweet tooth is never satisfied :) How about I try red meat when you try a salad?

  4. Don’t eat salads then…what about roasted veggies? I was going to say “eggplant” but I know how you feel about that…lol

  5. eew no eggplant. I will eat some veggies but not many…I am working on it…It took me eyars to finally like fruit! baby steps..lol!
