Alright, changing my eating times went well so now it’s time to change what I’m eating. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I have a voracious sweet tooth.
This week’s habit was to stop eating sweets…delicious, delicious sweets.
So I was not successful with my second week goal. I ate sweets four times this week. By the rules I set for myself I could have had sweets on my exception days but I definitely ate more than that.My old habit would be to play the blame game at this point. I could point out I had a stressful week, (I did,) or that people kept offering me treats, (fours times this week,) but why should I justify my bad behaviour? The fact is that I didn’t achieve my goal because I didn’t want to. Let’s just leave it at that.
Now, I could easily think, “F*** it, I’m done,” but a failure is no reason for me to quit. Instead, I will be revisiting this habit for next week. I won’t be adding another habit yet because I don’t want to feel overwhelmed. If I keep working at it I will be successful here, even if it takes me longer than one week to get there.
Week 1 – No eating after 7PM – Accomplished.
Stay tuned for the results of next week’s healthy habit.
