Marching forward...

It’s a new month. That means it is time to pick a new good habit to build. Problem is, right now I don’t seem to want a new good habit. So here are some things I am considering and you can vote for your favorite:

Water. Most of my fluid intake continues to be in the form of soda. I know it is not good for me, but I am not ready to tackle the actual Coke addiction right now. What I can do is make sure that I at least alternate between Coke and water, which would be a huge improvement over current practice.

Fruits and veggies. This would be an expansion on my bowl rule from February. The rule would be that I would have to have at least one fruit or veggie in my bowl for each meal. The idea is to move along on the “mostly plants” part of choosing healthy food and to cut back on the meat/fat/refined grains part.

Yoga/meditation. I’m anxious, stiff, and stressed. Yoga and meditation would address those issues with the added bonus of helping me pretend I’m going to be flexible someday.

Vote early and often: I want to pick my habit by Monday.

My mother gifted me with a taste for vegetables (and fruit, of course!). Doesn't always mean I eat "enough", though, so I've recently been finding the ChooseMyPlate.gov guildline very helpful.

So I suggest you move from a bowl to a plate, and make your veggie/fruit mound(s) equal to your other stuff mound(s)--at least for your main meal. I expect you might have fun with the mound-building part :).

How well you know me! I love mounds... ;)

But the overall voting results say water first. Sigh.
