Time to Change Some Bad Habits

I stepped on the scale this morning and was not surprised but more disappointed in what I saw. I have known for the last few months that I have added some bad habits to my life and now it is time to pay the piper. The weight gain is minimal (only close friends, sisters and my mother would notice) but if I don't conquer it now, it could get worse.

So, what are my bad habits?

--Cut out regularly eating the Sausage McGriddles at McDonalds. I know better.

--Quit ordering the Tres Leches dessert at Cafe Rio and Costa Vida.

--Start walking again.

--Going back to forcing myself to eat one leafy green vegetable, one citrus, one apple and one carrot a day.

No, I am not giving up my Diet Coke yet. Or anytime in the near future.

And, on a side note, why is it when something goes wrong with the car, the immediate question is "What did you do?" (Can't cars just develop problems unrelated to something I did?)

Well, time to get crackin'! I've got some Tres Leches and Sausage McGriddles to work off.

I really like your green veggie/daily fruit regimen. May I steal your idea?

I've heard the statistics on those mc griddles so I'm glad that's on the list. I've also heard they are suprisingly good, though, too. So I can undestand the enjoyment.

mmm....Sausage McGriddles. Those are a little....errr...a big slice of heaven!

And sorry I have been a lazy commenting bum. My IT dept at work is blocking blogger now, so I don't have as much time to read the blogs!

I wish I could narrow my bad habits down to just those you listed... I have a few more than you... :)
