Positive Habit change

Sunday, September 12, 2010

I have had an exhausting week! Today was the final day of four 12hr day shifts, and this shift in particular was a very stressful and difficult day. I had to stay later than expected and need to scramble to get a babysitter for my son.

As I was driving home I realized that I didn't have any money to pay the sitter and needed to stop and get some. I didn't want to go to my bank ATM because it only hands out $20 bills and I only need $10, so I stopped at the local convenience store so that I could take out money and buy something to make change.

As I was walking through the store trying to pick something small to buy, I walked past the display of potato chips and thought to myself, the old me wouldn't have thought twice about buying a large bag of chips and eating the whole bag as soon as I got home, wishing and hoping that it would help me forget about the stress I experienced that day.....well you know what?? I didn't even give them a second glance, I wasn't interested at all! I ended up purchasing a bottle of water! lol

It is a nice feeling when you come to the realization that you have made a positive habit change along your journey! Hopefully this is permanent and I have found alternative ways to deal with my stress!
