Recognizing Bad Habits


I can’t be the only one with bad habits. I can’t be the only one that ignores them and just keeps going on my merry way. I’m just saying.

Recognizing Bad Habits

  • starting my day with 2 cups of strong coffee
  • not eating breakfast
  • sometimes skipping lunch
  • not drinking enough water
  • going too long between meals without eating
  • drinking cola as an afternoon “keep me awake”
  • drinking 1-2 more cups of strong coffee with dinner
  • eating a late night bedtime snack
  • drinking cola (I think I like the straw, ice, and carbonation)
  • ketchup flavoured potato ships (I think I crave the salt)
  • Wendy’s Baconator (I think I crave the red meat and fat)

I love dark chocolate once or twice a week too, but I realized that the kind I like is not really a bad habit. I just need to use it properly and in the right combinations with the rest of my food.

Writing this list makes me realize that I don’t eat a lot of food, but I live on caffeine and do most of my eating at night. I am excited to change my bad food habits with Trim Healthy Mama.

Do you have bad food habits too?

I am still reading.

I wish I could read it faster, but there is so much information to digest in there.

I am so glad that I went ahead and purchased the PDF book because my order arrived yesterday and apparently Trim Healthy Mama is backordered and was not available (so it did not come). It won’t be available until March (insert tears here).

I have made it to page 110 so far. That’s chapter 11. When they first started talking about the S meals and E meals my brain started working overtime to fully understand, but then something clicked.

It is so simple and it makes so much sense. I have much experience with reading food labels and identifying carbs, so I may be ahead of the game, but it really is simple. With S meals you get your fuel from fat, so you have to keep your carbs super low. With your E meals you get your fuel from carbs, so you keep your fats super low. Alternating between the types of meals is what keeps your body burning fat. Remembering those two things will be the key to being successful.

As I was reading, I realized that the only piece of information I need to fully grasp right now is what the S and E meals are and how to use them. Since I need to focus on losing weight, I don’t need to know about S Helpers or Crossovers or Fuel Pulls right now. If weight-loss is slow or I hit any rough spots, my next step will be to learn about Fuel Pulls.

I don’t need to know or remember everything. What a relief that is.
