Hard Habit to Break….

Posted by Allison on December 2, 2011

I’m a chick of the 80’s. So of course when I starting thinking about the many harmful habits I have in my life, this song popped into my head.


Ok, to be fair that song doesn’t fit my situation at all…but the title TOTALLY fits when it comes to eating breakfast.  Since 2012 is going to be the most dramatic change in my entire life I might as well get a jump on it.  The problem is if I even THINK of changing a habit I turn into a teenager fighting with my adult self.  Think of healthy eating, immediately start scarfing down chocolate and chips.  Think of exercise, immediately staple my ass to the couch.  Ask me how often I get on the new and FREE rowing machine…ugh. So in order for me to break a bad habit I have to approach it VERY slowly.  The one habit that I feel I can break without stressing out endlessly over is eating breakfast.  I have never eaten breakfast.  Ok that’s not true, I love a good fry up every once in awhile and there is NOTHING like a bacon and egg feast after a night out but 99.9% of the time, I drink coffee until noon and then maybe have some lunch.  Well people, I’m 42 and my metabolism knows it.  So I’ve decided that I’m going to give it a good kick in the ass and start eating small meals throughout the day.  And here in lies the dilemma, I don’t like most breakfast foods.  I don’t even like eating fruit on an empty stomach.  So my solution is smoothies.

So I picked up some frozen fruit from Sobeys and some probiotic yogurt so I can make the smoothie thick.  I think I would like them sort of Java Juice smoothies.

Remember the wonderful blender that the last people who had this house just left because it was missing the inner ring? Well their stupidity is my gain.  I whipped it out this morning.

And voila!  A banana, blueberry with strawberry yogurt smoothie.  WAY too thick but it was very good.  Tomorrow I think I’ll have mango banana.  I’m already looking forward to it.

I’m on a contesting run right now and feel a big win coming around the corner.  This weekend I’m hoping to go spend the $75 I won for lingerie at some fancy lingerie store on the westend.  I’m hoping I don’t end up with 2 pair of panties cause everything is uber expensive.  I think a nice corset is in order.  Nothing makes a girl feel good than some fancy underthings, don’t you think?
