|I wish I was as "fat" as I was at 17.|
But my bad habits always get in my way. I do good for a month or even 3 but then the bad day comes and all those habits I worked hard to eliminate come back and I am eating a package of cookies and drinking milk straight from the carton in my car in the grocery store parking lot...true story.
So this time around I am taking different approach to getting healthy...instead of changing all my bad habits over night I am picking one bad habit to stop and one good habit to start every week. That way if I slip up (trying to be positive here) I won't feel like I have screwed everything up (this is a thinking error I know) and finish off the package of cookies. I can just move forward. And in a spirit of accountability and honesty I am sharing my habit changes.
- Good Habit: Increase my water intake to 3 liters a day. Boy to I have to pee a lot.
- Bad Habit: Don't add sugar to anything...like my coffee. Luckily I enjoy coffee enough to drink it black.
- Good Habit: When at work get up and walk around every hour when possible
- Bad Habit: No extra snacking...I am a horrible snacker if there is a bag of potato chips out I will get up several times to get a small handful. These calories add up fast.
t this when I want) and exercising I think its a good first step.
