The Power of Habit
Sunday, November 23, 2014
I have been reading the Power of Habit and have realized that in order to make a real. lasting life change, I am going to have to alter habits. I have several books on habits right now and I am just taking everything in. My first habit to alter was my spiritual life. My main cause of my weight gain 6 years ago was what was eating me, the struggles I was going through. I still have pieces of that challenge that are lingering. I am working to rectify and heal from them but I figured that was my first place to start. The only way I am going to have the willpower to change and do this is through God. I am going to need His guidance and strength to heal, move on and change. My first habit to change was my prayer and bible life. For the past 53 days, everyday I have read something from a bible reading plan, at least. I feel a difference and it has become a habit. I have 7 more days technically (I am working on each habit for 60 days) but I think the change could easily be permanent. I want to work on my prayer life and positive attitude, but also my eating habits. My next habit/goal, is going to be to keep a food journal. This will be helpful with breastfeeding when my new little one arrives in the next 3-4 weeks as well. It will help me identify my habits as well as any foods that may cause her issues. From there, I feel like I can transition into having two kids, with a realistic goal and figure out where exactly I need to move next. Of course, I also have other small goals but they are not my priority right now. I am trying to drink more water. I would like to eat less sugar but it is near impossible with my current lack of willpower this time of year. I am going to try and be on here more, updating more regularly to have a journal. I am also hoping to start my blog back up!
