Becoming a Habit


Saturday, June 05, 2010

So today is Saturday. I have to work every saturday but one a month. I work from 8-12. So I got up this morning and normally on Saturdays I like to "cheat" on what I eat just because it's Saturday, but today was different. I thought to myself, what am I going to have for breakfast? I could go to McDonalds and get a hash brown and frappe... but then I realized.. I don't want one! I don't want anything bad for me! I want to eat a healthy breakfast! Just because it's saturday doesn't mean anything! And then I was wondering where is this coming from?? Spark People! I'm starting new habits and keeping them! I slept in a little bit, so I didn't get up in time to go for a walk, but my dog Talula sure did give me this look like, "aren't we going for a walk???" I felt bad! I should have gotten up to go on a walk. My goal has been to get up early at least 1 day a week to go on a walk... this week I did it twice! I figured I'd start out small and work my way up.. I'm ready for monday to get here so I can get my new habit (routine) going of waking up, going for a walk, getting ready for work, and get my day going. I really didn't know if i'd get to this point, but I am here! I came in early to work so that I could eat my breakfast of my healthy oatmeal with flax seed. I didn't go get any bad sugary coffee drinks, I drank my bolthouse farms protein mocha cappuccino instead! I feel so proud of my decisions and now my decisionas are becoming a habit!!!!!

  Good for you. Making healthy choices seems to get easier and easier as you keep doing them. The other day I was at work from 8:15 am to 7:45 pm and the last thing I wanted to do was cook dinner. I thought how tasty some MacDonald's might be as I haven't had it for 2 or 3 months but then realized why I hadn't eaten it for so long. Besides all of the calories, sodium and fat I always feel like crap after eating MacDonald's -- the 10 to 15 minutes of enjoyment while eating it sure wasn't worth the 2 to 3 hours of discomfort that were sure to follow. I did end up picking up dinner but got a tuna sub on whole wheat with lots of veggies instead a much healthier and in the end tastier choice as well.
