So far I haven't. Certainly I've had a couple times in the grocery store walking past the bags of cookies where I've considered picking one up, but I'm immediately applying my other habit of calculating how it will fit into my day and deciding whether the serving size would satisfy me.

I am very conscious about what I eat. I allow myself a planned cookie or whatever once in a great while.
Took a very long time, but I no longer just eat without thinking and planning.

it's been up to me to inspire me.

It takes a long time to establish - or change - a habit and there will be moments where something triggers a memory and an automatic response. But the longer I go without giving energy to the old habit, the less power it has and the longer I focus on building the new habits instead of focusing on the old habit, the stronger the new ones get.

In other words, instead of focusing on 'giving up sweets' or 'staying away from ___,' I do better when I ONLY focus on the new habit I'm working on establishing to replace the old habit - by giving energy to the new habit instead of the old one, it seems to work best for me.

Sure habits are always there and when I am exhausted or stressed here they come.

I start to chew on baby carrots, slice an apple, eat blackberries, have a protein drink...these are go to items.

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Don't make todays choices be tomorrows regret

There are those moments when my old habit surfaces...What about you?

Do you reach for a sweet? Or not I control the urge?
