They say it takes 21 days to create a habit. How many days does it take to break one?
I have been on a rollercoaster since my debut Figure show November 8, 2014. As you have probably seen the sporadic, emotional, nonsense posts. Start and stop, start and stop. Which is why I come back to, how many days does it take to break a habit?
My habit is/was sticking to an eating plan. Journaling my food, and training with a coach. I have been decent at journaling but it is what my coach wants to see, not the in between snacks, the BLT’s as I call them. BLT’s = Bites, Licks and Tastes 🙂
In the last two weeks, I have decided not to train for a show in May. I have quit working with my coach (temporary) and I have gone off the friggin’ rails! I wake up every morning telling myself, today is the day. I will eat properly, according to my “off season” meal plan. I will take my off season seriously, and I will get back on track. But for me it only takes one thing, and then I give myself permission to throw away the rest of the day.
I don’t have a middle right now, only extreme left and right. But I am going to learn the middle.
It takes 21 days to create a habit. I am starting it today, this post Day 1 of 21.
