Bad Habits

Not tracking my food.

Spending money when I shouldn't.

Not staying on top of housework.

Eating too much with the hubby is gone.

Not brushing our teeth twice a day.

Not making my bed first thing in the morning (or at all).


Giving in to the boys when they want something, even when my better judgment says no.

Forgetting to get the things the hubby asks me to do done.

Not putting the laundry away asap.

Not waking up before the boys to pray and read my bible.

Right now I am feeling down, unmotivated, guilty for spending money and tired. I can't remember the last time I didn't want to go work out. But right now I have no motivation at all. I gave into some candy last night and right now don't feel like tracking. I know I have so much to work on as a wife, mother, Christian, and an "athlete". But right now I just don't want to. I want to sit with the boys and watch movies all day and eat popcorn and candy. Maybe I will just quickly pack up the boys and go to the beach. That would be nice. I know I will feel better once I run. I need to RUN!
I didn't get that bike trailer yesterday, my Walmart didn't have it. But it's waiting for me at another Walmart. I have been thinking I might wait on it though.
Okay enough excuses!! I will work on one bad habit at a time.

If it's any comfort at all, I have more than my fair share of bad habits too...some of them the same as yours. The good news is that we're in this together. Just hang in there my friend. It sounds to me like you're in a 'funk' and it may be due to all the changes in your life right now. I'll be praying for you.

It is so hard to be good every single day. All you can do is try to do better tomorrow. And you are doing the right thing by making one good choice. Because one good choice is better than all bad choices. And at least you are acknowledging how you're feeling. And we have all been there. Some of us (insert sheepishly raised hand here) more than others.

Awe! Thank you both. I feel a little better after getting that off my chest. :)

Don't beat yourself up. We all have bad times. The trailer might be something you want to wait on. Maybe it could be a family Christmas gift. Amelia loves her trailer just as much, as I do. Ok not really - I think she loves it MORE!

And if you waited, you might feel less guilty. :)

Don't forget - you don't HAVE to be good or perfect - there's Someone Else who does that for you. Do your best, admit your mistakes, and then do your best again. Hang in there!

Thank you all ;) I know, and I have been good for so long. I just thought I was done with getting off track because I really loved my eat/work out routine, but now schedule is different. I will push through tho. :)

We all have bad habits, no one is perfect. And like you said, you know you have to push through.
