When I go grocery shopping, I am surprised by the kinds of foods I don't buy anymore. Ice cream, chips, soda. I see them in other shopping carts & wonder why people are wasting their nutrition dollars on junk when they could have yogurt, oranges, and lemon water instead. My tastes HAVE changed!
How have you changed your grocery shopping habits?
Embrace Change, Even If It's Uncomfortable At First
Getting used to doing things differently, like changing cooking and eating habits and working out (even just fitting a workout in to my day) can make me bristle at times. It's not what I'm "used to". But when I start feeling like this, I ask myself, "Well, how was that old way of life working for you? You have to change habits to expect different results." It sounds so simplistic, and it is, but sometimes that little reminder is what I need to motivate myself to make healthy choices.
