It’s no secret that your long term habits will be a huge determining factor on how your life turns out. Especially when it comes to health and fitness, because you literally become what you eat. There are many things that can go wrong with the body that are completely out of your control. However, what YOU choose to eat is not one of them. My philosophy is, you only have one body so why not treat it that way. You’re not a ‘cat with nine lives,’ so you don’t get a do over if you mess it up.
If you’ve already determined what your unhealthy eating habits are you’re on the right track. But have you actually done anything about it is the question? Fighting your bad habits is not easy, but instead of making it about “weight loss” do it for your health and longevity. Fuel your body with the right foods and I promise you will feel better just knowing that you are taking care of yourself.
| Be realistic, nothing worth doing ever comes easy.
| Make a list of your bad habits; it might seem extra but writing things down is beneficial.
| Compile a list of things you should be doing to get to where you want to be. Ex: Drinking water daily, getting fruits and vegetables into your diet daily etc.
| Take it slow; start with cutting back, then get rid of the bad habit all together.
My old (bad) habits and how I said see ya later to them!
| Drank way too much juice + tea with lots of sugar
| Consumed a lot of snacks throughout the day
| Ate large portions of food
| Late night snacking after dinner
These are the bad habits of mine that I recognized and decided to change. I slowly started drinking more water-less juice, started paying attention to my portion sizes and cut back, and I also cut out the late night snacking all together. These small changes to start my journey made all the difference. It’s easier to start your journey to health when you set out realistic goals for yourself. If you jump all in at once more often than not it won’t work. I don’t want to say you’ll fail but you get the point.
I want to turn your attention to an awesome book that will help you nip your habits in the butt and give you a good laugh at the same time.
