Do I have ANY bad habits....Well, I hate to say all of the ones lsted so far! hahahaha!! I really struggle with:
1. procrastination
2. I hate housework (this is where lots of procrastination comes in)
3. nighttime eating, when everyone is in bed and I have quiet time, my first thought is "What can I have for me?"

I'm a chewer, I constantly need to be biting or chewing on something. pencils, my fingers, hair, gum, my tongue, food, etc...

I also curse like a sailor (although in my defense, I WAS a sailor at one time)

I will put dishes off until my sink is overflowing

My weight loss journey is similar to the "tortoise and the hare", if I remember to be the tortoise and just keep going...I will eventually win.

I sometimes stress eat and I often stay up way too late and don't get enough sleep. I am working on both since they are both part of the reason that I am here needing to lose weight in the first place.

Bad habits? I have many.

~Procrastination.....if I can put it off until the last minute, I will.
~I have the worst sweet-tooth. If it's cake or cake-like, watch out!
~I don't bite my nails, but I peel them. If I find a small crack, I'll pick & pick at it until I can peel it and then tear it off. Horrible, I know, but I just can't seem to stop.

Mt Dew is a horrible habit I have, I turn too it when I'm tired and need some pep which is pretty much all the time.

Putting off doing things to the last minute.

Not taking very good care of my skin.

The three very best things I've ever done in my life are Ty William, Bryce Julius, and Preston Scott.

R: Refuse to Quit
O: Overcome Obstacles
A: Account for my Actions

I never started smoking and don't care to drink so while friends of mine have worked to stop these I've had the nail biting struggle. I had no desire or inkling to really stop until I saw my 2 year old chewing on her nails. That was the last straw. I stopped within a week. Her dad had bought me a 4 in 1 file/buffer for my nails at the mall. I started keeping them trimmed short and buffed pretty so that they were too pretty to bite. I have not chewed or bit them in over 5 years.

Some people go the fake route but that tears up your nails and the paints and stuff that some people can slow growth and strength. EVEN the growth formula ones. The buffing helped keep them clean shiny(more than clear polish can do). I made sure to carry around nail clippers to cut off any breaks over biting them off. I found that was my biggest issue with it later. I will still try to bite them off if I can't get to clippers but I do not chew on them. I haven't managed to stop putting it between my two front teeth when nervous or anxious though but at least I'm not biting on them.

For my bad habits:
Procrastination is my biggest one.
skimping out on my skin and teeth care. :(
computer time I need to spend less time online

I managed to bust the workout procrastination the past 2 weeks and saw great results. A couple more weeks and it should be habit(but a GOOD one).

I still bite my nails and cuticles. Not as bad as I used to, but it's always the first thing to pick up if I'm stressed.
