I have heard that it takes 21 days to break a habit. It has come to my attention that this may be true! We have been on this journey 2 full months now and I have noticed many things that have changed. Not only have I lost weight I have lost 7.5 inches from my fatness, quit eating Hershey’s and quit drinking soda. That is all HUGE in the big picture of it all. It has gotten to the point that I do not even crave Hershey’s or soda any longer. I prefer water over soda and I have found other more healthy ways to curb my sweet tooth. As many of you already know one of our favorites is fat free frozen yogurt. YUM! By the way the coolest place ever just opened up nearby so we will be doing a post about it soon.
I guess if you just hang in there you can over come anything. That is pretty empowering to know. By over coming the few things it has put me on track for bigger and better things. If you would have asked me 4 months ago if I would do a 5k. I would have laughed at you and thought never in a million years I can’t do that! Well, I am starting my 3rd week of c25k training today! Not only that my original plan is to run a 5k by my birthday in September and now we are going to try one at the end of July. We are planning a run/walk version in July, but we are doing it. This is exciting and scary at the same time. The best thing about it all is that I know I can do it if I want to!
When you start doing something good and making positive changes it creates a chain reaction. We have so many people who are joining us in this journey and planning on doing the 5k with us. That is very cool! 21 days to break a habit…Right now I am working on cutting bad carbs out I only have 15 days to go and I am very excited to get there. When you put together no Hershey’s, no soda, exercise and no bad carbs. You have a recipe for a healthy, happy, fabulous fattie!
