Habits… breaking old and bring in new
I have heard so many great stories of those that do not want to be a slave to the Diet Coke and Mischelle wrote and inspired my blog. I can relate as I was one of those myself nearly 3 years ago so this was a really fun vlog to shoot. I hope I upload right (UPDATE: I look like Jackie Chan in this video b/c of a audio mismatch. I have yet to figure out what I did).
My two gems when it comes to breaking the bad habit:
1. Make a water requirement – I had to drink 70 oz before I could even take a sip of soda. Many days when I was learning to drink water I would struggle to get that down.
2. Don’t keep it in the house in quantity – I just bought one small bottle with a twist cap and I would pour it in a small cup and have the taste. It was the first third of the drink I really enjoyed so I would stop after that and save the rest.
Those were my tricks. However, I have to say from watching my friend Kelly quit recently – one of the things you MUST HAVE IS THE DESIRE TO QUIT!
Right now I am moving on to cutting back on the carbs. When I was running the long distances I picked up the chips habit and now I am snacking too much on them. So time to only by the small bags and start that process again 😉
What are your good tricks to help keep some of those bad habits from getting out of control?
