In analyzing the worst of my most recent counterproductive bad habits, here are the worsties of the bunch:
1. Eating in Bed. Yes...laziness. It is so much easier to lie in bed and eat then to get up and sit in the dining room. Worst part of all of this (aside from the very obvious LAAAAZY factor)...it that much like Pavlov's dog, I now get hungry every night when lying down in bed. Bad, bad habit. Breaking pretty easily...there is no good reason for eating in bed (outside of serious illness). So I'm just going to stop doing it. Hopefully, the night cravings will dissipate also, after a week or so.
2. Eating fake food. Not even junk food...I'm talking about meal replacement bars and shakes. Again...laziness. Well, half laziness. I've been so busy lately that choking down a protein bar while driving down the road is just the best I can do. Calorie count stays low...but then I find myself wanting to binge eat when I finally DO get a chance for a real meal. Breaking...I don't know. I'm trying for slightly better planning, and FORCING myself to take 5-10 minutes to at least sit down and have a sandwich. Don't know how quickly this one will be broken...but I'm going to try.
3. Eating out. The money spent...makes me want to cry. But the weight gain...is worse. This goes back to the "busy" thing I'm dealing with right now...it's just so much easier. I established YEARS ago that I CANNOT EAT OUT. I don't care if I'm eating a bowl of plain sprouts with a glass of waterlemon...I gain weight. SO...enough of my nonsense...I've got to try for a "No Eating Out" streak. I'm going to try to track it, and see how far I can get with it!
Gosh...not so quick of a blog after all. Blergh.
