Healthy eating reset?

 I am writing this AS I AM EATING a handful of M&Ms. And not my first handful.


BUT. YOU GUYS.

My eating habits were so great but they have sloooowly started to go to total hell.

New month, new routines, though, right? RIGHT? Right.

So. A few things that will help:


1. BIGGER BREAKFAST. I have been eating one piece of peanut butter toast and about 6 cups of black coffee. The peanut butter is a step in the right direction, but I need more protein, WATER, and some fruit

2. MORE WATER. I was doing so well at this and drinking a gallon a day, but my habits have lapsed, and I am struggling to drink my water bottle more than twice. Ideally, I would be refilling it 4 times. (The gallon bottle always laying around really lost its charm, but maybe I can drag it out.

3. PACK MY LUNCH. Lunchtime is hectic, and packing a salad the night before even if I am just going to eat it in my own kitchen is for sure what I should be doing.

4. MAYBE EASE UP ON THE BAKING. 

5. TEA FIRST AT NIGHT. I love my spicy nighttime tea, but I have stopped making it for myself, falling, instead, face-first into some cheese or ice cream. I need to drink tea first and go from there.


The biggest thing I need to keep in mind is that taste is just the tip of the ice berg. I need to think about how food makes me feel after I have eaten it. Lately I feel... not good after my junk food indulgences.

Yay for a month of healthy eating capped off with an obscene Halloween candy binge, huh? Bring it, October.

I like these - doable small changes. I am trying to do nighttime tea too. Thanks so much for writing your blog.
