#1-Learn about yourself and why you want to attain or break the HABIT-

Quit the JUNKY Carb Habit!!
I’ve been a junk fool aholic since I was a kid….I’ve always loved candy! I’ve always loved chips! I’ve always loved snacking and eating quite a bit.  I do NOT believe that eating some “fun” foods is wrong– I’ve never been a “CLEAN” eater, nor do I think it’s paramount!  We need to enjoy all life has to offer, but in MODERATION! Also, I am a big believer that when you workout HARD enough, a slightly imperfect diet is okay. I am not someone who believe the popular notion that diet is 90% of the equation when trying to lean up- It’s and important part, but WORKOUTS count a lot more than 10% in my math!

My eating/diet is a work in progress- ALWAYS!  I look back 12 years ago and MAN!! I ate horrilby!! Now days- I get “lazy” with my diet at times, but overall it’s 100x’s better than then.  The winter is always a time when I gain weight….the past couple years I even got up into the 135 range.  This year, I’ve done better than normal, but still I’m ready to hit it harder sooner this winter!  Having goals like a ski trip on March 1 and the Warrior Dash on May 5 really helps!!

Back about 1.5 years ago, when prepping to go “train with Ava Cowan”….I had a stellar attitude toward my diet- I was eating only fruits and veggies for carbs and I really leaned up nicely!  However, I was working out quite a bit more at that time– Travis and I were playing tennis for 2 hours at a time 2-3 times a week– that long “activity” added to my aeoribic fitness a lot and allowed me to lean up easier.  I need to figure out how to add more long aerobic activity into my routine- hiking is a good idea!

Attain the Keep my Kitchen clean Habit:

This challenge to keep my kitchen clean is tough already! I hate cleaning…especially when it’s 3-4 times a day like in the kitchen!  It’s always been a problem for me to keep my kitchen clean, mostly becuase I find it a waste of time to clean after every meal– it’s faster to do it all 1 time a day??  Anyhow- I want my kitchen clean consistently.  So I must change my mindset about it!

I think I’ll put my ipod on and get after it– it could be relaxing to listen to a podcast while I clean.


#2- Learn about ways other have established this habit or broken it– Google is amazing! Or, heck, go old-school and hit the library or book store for some resources!

I am a Carb Addict- I’ve know it for about 14 years…I wrote an article about it a few years ago- here’s the link:

Today, I found this great definition of what being Addictied to Carbs means: http://www.carbohydrateaddicts.com/cadfnd.html

I feel like I’ve learned a lot about the battle I’m up against to BREAK THE HABIT!! I certainly hope you take a half hour or so to LEARN about your specific habit(s)!

We can Change!!
