The light bulb went on again this morning. I realized again how people are creatures of habit. And over the last six months, I have slowly let myself get into different habits. Some are probably good for me. Some have not helped me. So, today is a take stock day. I am going to list the habits that I want to change and start to make the changes.

1. I've been getting motivated later and later each morning. I will start going back to getting motivated earlier.
2. I will look through my cookbooks and plan different, good meals each week. I will go to the grocery store with a list. I will take stock of what I have in the house and pick recipes that will use these up.
3. I will change up my exercises - check into taking a class.
4. I will keep looking for new things to do and actually do some of them.

This is just a start. I am looking forward to having some new (or old) good habits by May.

    Sounds like a good plan for me too. I have realy been enjoying my big kitchen, so cooking each day hasn't been a problem. Getting dh to do the dishes, on the other hand, is...Yes, I know I could just do them and get it over with, but his learned helplessness gets on my nerves and he needs to do his share.

    WE had a boiled dinner on Sun, then hash on Monday and yesterday, I used up the last of the ham from the dinner and made a homemade soup.. Food just seems to go a lot father with only 2.

    Should get out and enjoy that sun - have a nice walk... stop being so lazy... that's the habit I have to re=learn...

    I am trying to hard to get into the habit of planning my meals so I can go shopping and at least have that chore done for the week so I am not going day by day trying to figure out what we are eating instead of rushing to figure it out last minute and then whipping up something unhealthy. Good habits are so valuable if we can just keep them!! emoticon
