Habit forming

I am attempting to form some new and better habits.

Reaching for the celery instead of the cookie. Doing something active instead of watching a movie. And so on and so on.

I had read somewhere that it takes about a month to form a new habit. Where I read that I have no idea but I was searching some sites trying to find where I had read it and found this instead.

I found this article very informative and very encouraging. I went a little deeper and read some information about the author. And I was just plain impressed.

I have decided to go about this in a methodical manner (instead of the willy-nilly way I normally do things). Ha. We'll see how long this lasts.

My first new habit: create a meal plan and stick to it.

Yesterday I created a meal plan for today through Saturday. So far I have kept tonight's meal.

As Bob would say, "Baby step."
