Bad Habits...

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Three days ago, I ate an entire bag of mini powdered-sugar donuts. And half a box of chocolate ones. And that night we had pizza, which I gorged on. Followed by half a pint of Ben & Jerry's.

Yeah. I know.


But this is the reality. It didn't seem that bad at the time. The donuts? They were munched on bit by bit throughout the day. The ice cream? Well, I only ate half... This is how I justified it to myself. And it's not the first time. I do it almost every day in some form or another.

I know that it isn't yesterday's decisions that matter as much as today's, and I have been better. But I still need to own up to my bad habits. My unhealthy lifestyle.

Instead of worrying about my weight 6mos from now, I'm just going to focus on making it through each day. Everything else will fall into place.

    Did you know scientists say it takes 3 weeks to create a habit? I personally think it takes way longer than that but what ever. The fact still didn't develop your bad eating habits overnight....and they aren't going to disappear over night.

As Dorie on Finding Nemo says:

"Just keep swimming..just keep swimming...swimming swimming swimming"

    I think the best thing about your 'confession' is that you only ate half the pint! That is the way to do it...if you can start small and 'just eat half' of the goodies that you are enjoying...that is a BIG step. Thanks for sharing!
