Tonite I spoke to a group about making healthy habits. Evidently, I have a masters degree on the subject, but have no idea what makes one person lose the weight for life and another ride the ever-popular roller coaster.......oh my God, they killed off "Ray" on CSI..what the hell? Sorry...I'm watching the TV in the background....I digress.

At any rate, I'm just saying, it is important to be aware of what may get in your way when you begin a new lifestyle change. If you will eat the junk in your house...get rid of the junk in your house. If you are constantly seduced by the couch after work, go to the gym on the way home, at lunch, or in the morning. In a way you are your own Dr. Drew (as seen on TV), you are removing the triggers that promote a certain behaviour. You just have to be aware of what triggers you.
I promise you will slip back into old behaviours and, hopefully, you will learn from them along the way. As each one occurs, take notes, make changes, and create a stronger action plan that will help you overcome that barrier if you should run into it again (like a Tim Horton's donut running into your face by accident...it happened to a friend of mine just yesterday....no, wait, that was a meatball).
Kay, that's it. I have to nurse my chocolate chip food baby as I watch the end of CSI....oh my God..this is the one Justin Bieber is in...ya..right...I'm buying that he's a bad guy...no bad guy would have hair like that....whatever.
