Part of the reason why I haven’t been eating too healthy lately is because I’ve been really lazy about cooking… and eating out instead. Although I generally try to eat healthy when I go to a restaurant, it doesn’t always work out. Plus, no matter what, eating dinner out is still going to cost me more money than if I stayed home and cooked something out of all the goodies I have.

I’ve slipped a lot, actually. And it’s turned into one huge vicious cycle of Catch-22. I’ve been feeling stressed, eating a lot of junk, then feeling guilty about it, which increased my stress and ultimately made me keep eating said junk.
It hasn’t been a very pretty picture.
I’ve indulged way too much on my two biggest vices of all time: diet wild cherry Pepsi and Gushers candy.
Yes, I know they’re bad for you. I’ve read a million times how sugar is terrible and diet soda is killing us. But despite writing some of these stories myself, I’ve still been doing it.
