While on my journey for my positive self, I knew one thing was going to have to change, and that was nutrition. I took a huge risk by merging YUMeating here on Nevermore Lane. In doing so I suffered a HUGE financial setback as well as lost a lot of great sponsors who only wanted to work with food blogs. I felt it was in my best interest if I took a step back from the 24/7 thought process of running a food blog and really looked at my total well-being and that meant, dealing with my food issues.
When you have a family to take care of, the meal prep and planning tends to revolve around all persons in the house and not just the chef. This was a huge task because even though I wanted to eat cleaner and healthier, that was not always happening. I struggled to come to terms that even though YUMeating was making me a great amount of money, it was terrible for my mental health and total wellness.
When the marriage ended, the website had to go. It was therapeutic, but I will tell you, I sure miss it.
These days, I’m not cooking for a family and I can prepare whatever I want. I have forgotten how to do that which is why starting Monday I am doing the Fit Girls 28 Day Challenge. I feel this is just the reboot I need to break through this weight loss plateau I have been on the last 2 weeks and really push myself a bit further. I am looking to shed some inches, gain some muscle and add some more run time to my treadmill.
Once you feed your body with proper nutrition, self-care becomes so much easier. Now, I’m working on Nevermore Lane to include all my changes, journeys and lifestyle. I’m happy about the direction we’re going in.
I’m going to look into that Fit girls challenge; hadn’t heard of it. I think we are all guilty of not taking care of our bodies; I think a lot of people start thinking of doing so after they have suffered a major illness like heart attack, get diagnosed with diabetes etc. Good you are thinking proactively before such an event!
good luck with it!
