I am so guilty of this.
Here's the thing. I feed my children three nutritious meals every day, along with lots of healthy snacks. They are ALWAYS hungry so I have lots of fruit and chopped up veggies and stuff like that in the house. But somehow despite that I don't seem to eat breakfast myself very often (apparently coffee doesn't count as breakfast... what?!) and some days I skip other meals as well. I do make up for it in snacks any time after 4pm. Not necessarily the healthy snacks I feed my kids though.
I've been aware that I need to address this issue for a while now. Especially as I am moving more, my body needs more fuel and that fuel shouldn't REALLY be entirely processed sugars. So shocking I know.
I was given the opportunity to have my diet assessed by a qualified nutritionist at Diet For You recently and it took me a while to decide to do it, because sometimes it is nicer not to know right?
But I got brave and provided my food intake over a few days for analysis.
My BMI is healthy and towards the low end of the scale. Yep knew that. I'm in a healthy weight range for my height. Yay me.
Not really a surprise, but YIKES when I see it like that! The report has given me a real wake up call. It is all good and well to be exercising my butt off but if I'm living on saturated fat and sugar the benefits of moving are far less than if my diet was more appropriately balanced.
Since I got my report I have been determinedly eating home made muesli with lots of fibre and grains and nuts every morning. Along with my coffee. A woman has to function.
I've upped my water intake and have become far more aware of grabbing some fruit or veg to snack on before the chocolate.
I'm not gonna win any 'best diet ever' awards because bee sting buns are a thing. But I am going to remember that pie chart (mmmm pie) before I reach for the family block of chocolate from now on.
Are you like me? Do you do all the right things for your family but somehow not for yourself?
