Vice Busting (and other thoughts)

Just getting back into the groove. Went to yoga today. Walked two miles yesterday. I WILL Succeed!

I've been getting free daily e-mails from Julia Haver's Vice-Busting Diet. They are encouraging and give new hints now and then. She reminds me not to try to change everything at once, but to make one small change at a time.

I do not do her top 3 vices, but I have vices of my own. Instead of watching TV, I like to spend too much time on the computer. Instead of soda pop, I just like sweets too much. I exercise but I don't get enough sleep. I do drink lots of water! I can't remember her 3rd one, but anyway, the point is to pinpoint the one habit we most need to change.

So I cut out sweets again. I will watch for others.

Hint: If water gets boring, add a bit of lemon or lime juice and stevia (sweetener) to taste. Still practically no calories, but a change of pace. Sometimes for my fruit serving, I put in frozen berries or fruit instead of ice cubes. Yummy!

  1. I'm with you. I love sweets. I also love breads. One thing I like to do is orchestrate my meals such that I eat my vegetables first, then my proteins. I save my carbs for last. That way, I eat a smaller portion of the breads because I'm already pretty full from the rest of the meal. Then, my carbs feel a little like dessert, a little like that naughty treat that society has said is bad, but that every diet should contain some of. It's a mental trick, but it works for me.
