I think my bad morning from yesterday is seeping into today. Do you ever get tired of everything in general? I do. A lot. Today I’m tired of eating healthy, gaining weight, not pooping enough, boredom at work, and only getting 6 hours of sleep every night. I’m sure at least a few of those are related to one another.
I work out all the time. I try to eat healthy. I try to eat enough fruits and veggies, and I take my vitamins. I clean the house every day and pay my bills on time and I don’t bite my nails or drink coffee.
I have a lot of good habits that you hear about all the time. So, today’s three things are my bad habits. These are bad habits I kinda like and want to keep. Forever.
Ok, maybe not forever.
Hopefully not forever.
I eat Splenda and Truvia (and think Stevia sucks)
I love Splenda and use it mostly in my oatmeal. If I’m in the mood for ice cream but want to eat something healthier, I’ll make a protein smoothie. Sometimes I’ll add a packet of Truvia to it if I want something extra sweet. Plus, Truvia has a real sugar-like consistency that I dig. But I do not like it in my oatmeal. So, I have boxes of both at home. If I’m out of one, it’s considered an emergency.
I love Diet Coke.
I don’t really discriminate against diet drinks in general. I know they’re bad because they leach calcium from your bones. I know they’re bad because the artificial sugars are known to stimulate hunger and make you eat more. I know I should drink more water. But I don’t.
I’ve quit diet coke for 2 months before and it sucks. So, I pick my battles. I will skip eating that cupcake most days, but I will not skip a diet coke if I really want it. Sometimes I drink one can a day, sometimes I drink four. Everytime I love it.
I Eat Too Many Sweets
I love sweets. I love cupcakes, cookies, marshmallows, and peanut buttery stuff the most. Pretty much anything with frosting is fair game to my tonsils. I’ve put out Facebook APBs for Cadbury Eggs (thanks Jack and Teri!) so I can make my newly discovered addiction, Cadbury Egg and Peep s’mores (thanks Melissa! I think…).
Is this normal? Probably not. When I eat low carb, I crave less sweets, so I try to eat low carb (not no carb) most of the time. I do try to limit my sweets as much as possible, but it’s hard and it sucks.
I’m thinking my bad habits might seep into Friday too.
What’s your bad habit?
