Here it is. Three weeks after my three-week long project of trying to make healthy a habit.
I thought I’d answer the same exact questions from before…
Have I changed any habits?
Yes, I still maintain the changes I wanted to make. Not perfectly though, I will admit. I’ve gone through a fast food drive-thru twice in the past three weeks and I’m not proud. It was out of convenience. (And just for the record, In ‘n Out and El Pollo Loco doesn’t count as fast food to me. They’re more like once-in-a-while fun.) I have wine maybe two to three times a week and mostly two glasses or less. Big difference for me and I love that this has stuck. My diet has stayed way healthier with dehydrated fruit and kale chips leading the way in snacks as opposed to the kettle chips and candy days of 2015. I still have some other faults I’m trying to kick but those are more inward. I can say this though – a healthy life makes a healthy mind.
Is it getting easier every day to do so?
To some degree yes, but there are still challenging days. I miss things, like frozen soft pretzels and cereal bars, but learning about the unhealthy things inside them helps keep me stay strong.
Do I feel better?
Definitely. All over. Inside and out.
Does it take three weeks to make a habit?
It seems that three weeks is a pretty solid number to start with but effort is needed far beyond that, at least in my opinion.
Will I continue?
100%. And by my mind focusing on it so much right now, it seems that everyday I learn a new way to be more healthy and happy. The universe speaks, if you’re listening….
What does being healthy mean?
To me, it means treating my body the best that I can while being proactive by doing my own research about what is good or bad for me.
Thanks again, to all of you who have come along for the ride and showed support through likes, comments and shares. And for talking to me about it!
Stay tuned… I’ll keep you updated :)
