Challenge Blog - New Habit #1
Saturday, March 02, 2013
Being part of the 2013 Beautiful Butterflies, Winter into Spring team, we are given a Living the Good Life challenge (LGTL) each week. This week we are to write a blog each day on what new habit you wish to develop. My new habit would be Self Control when it come to eating. I love my sweets and have been able to eat them in moderation and maintain a weight loss. But... I can also be swayed to eat too much and the wrong types when opportunity presents itself.
The question is How will I make this my new habit? I know that I will need to control the urge to overdo it. Measuring and tracking will help make sure I eat the right foods. I will also consider the nutritional damage that eating too much of the sweets when it is offered. Checking nutritional values is very important to track. The change will take time and dedication and will also require me to be conscious of what I am eating.
This is the beginning of the 2nd week of the challenge. I gained .2 lbs this week and although not a large amount, it is definitely not in the right direction. As Weight Leader for the team, I feel I have the responsibility to set the example of losing weight during the challenge. Now I am taking the first step by developing new habits that I can work on this week.
Now if I could follow directions I would be ahead of the game. Tomorrow I will develop this more (added after I realized I didn't follow directions, LOL!)
