Healthy Habits

I have been part of a group called Healthy Habits, Happy Moms since right after I got out of rehab.  I really love it, a lot.  Someone paid for me to do the Balance 365 program (this is sooooo huge because it’s not cheap).  Then I started struggling and anything that required me to make changes or work towards something went out the window.  I also thought that I wanted to focus more on “intuitive eating” and less on healthy habits, so I left all of my groups and took a long step back.

In late spring, I made the decision that I was ready to take a look at changes that I could make, and I finally decided I was ready to do this the Balance 365 way.  About this time a full pdf of the program became available so I sent it to be printed and have slowly been working through it.

I have also chosen a habit to focus on, and that is movement.  This is mostly hiking because I love being outside.  I also do yoga sometimes, and I plan to eventually start some strength training through the Balance 365 programs.  One step at a time!

I am also just making little tweaks here and there in a few other areas.  The main reason is because of my reflux; my goal is to feel good.

My desire is to be hiking more to condition my body to be able to backpack again.  There would be no way I could do that at the moment.  I can handle a hike here, but I wouldn’t be able to handle a day hike with a pack on.  No way!  So that’s my goal!  I’m also just trying to listen to my body better and eat/drink things and amounts that make me feel good.  I’m finding that the more I pay attention to it, the less I actually want soda, which is huge.

This will probably be a life-long work in progress and I’m okay with that!

Some habits that I feel like I’m consistent at (and have been for a long time) that maybe aren’t B365 habits but are habits nonetheless:

  • Nighttime routine: Skin care, teeth brushing, and meds/supplements
  • Not eating past full (this is a B365 habit, called Goldilocks).  I eat too much once in a while but it’s not a common thing.
  • Keeping a daily routine with the house.  I do one load of laundry per day, keep the house picked up, keep up with dishes, make my bed, etc.  We clean bathrooms once a week, clean floors multiple times a week, etc.
  • Using my planner each day to stay organized each day
  • I meal plan every week.
  • I meal prep every Sunday for the week (usually veggies for meals, veggie tray, baked breakfast, sometimes homemade tortillas, etc).
  • I reduced my soda intake from all day, every day, to one every other day or so.  I’m happy with this.
  • I’m sure there’s more…
