One Habit At A Time!

Friday, August 24, 2012

I plan to add one good habit at a time.
The changes will be small; however, that is how I plan to add new, good habits.
I want changes that I can continue to do all my life. I am interested in lifestyle changes. Things that are realistic and not so difficult that I will not be able to continue. I want to focus on positive changes.
The first change is adding a healthy snack. I prepare the snack earlier in the day and have it ready. I am adding a healthy snack; I am not taking away anything. When I eat that healthy veggie snack, I will eat fewer of the items I want to limit. The focus is on getting something good and not losing something. This is a great journey and the support of SparkPeople is great! SparkFriends are wonderful!

    Well done, we should all take a note out of your book. This is a lifestyle change and therefore will need to improve our habits one day at a time. Good luck hun

    That is how I have been doing it, and it does work when you do it, little, by little.

    What a great idea preparing your healthy snack early in the day, this way you have the snack all measured out and ready!! uncounted calories slipped by that we all do when we are hungry by popping something in our mouths as we prepare our food!! I like this idea, it's clever, it works and it brings you one step closer to success on your journey to a new YOU!!

Thanks for sharing!!

    I think that is very smart. If you try to add too many at once, you'll get overwhelmed and that's when you'll get discouraged.

    You're so right! I've really discovered the hard way that if you try to change everything at once, you'll fail. One step at a time.
