Sometimes it's easy for me to forget what works for me.
This morning's breakfast: 1 egg with a runny yolk and topped with dill, chilli, garlic, and onion powder, 6 egg whites fried with dill and spinach, a bowl of GoGo Quinoa 4 Grain Hot Cereal, and a mug of DAVIDsTEA's Organic Pu'erh Ginger tea.
I can spend hours reading blogs, Facebook updates, and scanning pictures on Instagram, but I've recently realized that this might have a negative affect on me.
After spending too much time on Instagram drooling over all of my foodie friends' amazing looking meals, I start to question myself and what I'm eating. This isn't good.
Luckily, last night my wireless internet wasn't working and I was unable to access any social media for the entire evening. I was frustrated at first, but today I'm actually happy it wasn't working.
After an evening without social media, I feel more content with who I am and what I am doing for myself in order to acheive my goals.
I have taken some time to remind myself what works for me and tell myself that "what works for person x may not be what works for me."
Everyone is different and what works for me is most likely different than what works for you and I need to remind myself that it is best to do what I know works for me… why would I start doing something that doesn't work for me? That just doesn't make sense.
My healthy habit #2 for WIAW is going to include a few different things to accomplish one common goal…
In order for me to stick to and be proud of what works for me I will:
- Limit my time scanning food pictures on Instagram
- Use other peoples' food pictures as an inspiration rather than something to compare myself to
- Make an inspiration board of my goals using pictures that promote health
- Journal because whenever I write down my feelings I feel so much better
What is your healthy habit this week?
Can you relate to how I've been feeling lately?
