Time for Slice of Life Tuesday – that fun writing challenge at “Two Writing Teachers” Join in the fun!
Trying to change long-held habits can be so challenging. One of my worst – always eating a treat (toast/cookie/granola bar etc) with my cup of tea – 3 times a day. Even yesterday, coming back from the doctor’s, I had a pumpkin spice muffin and tea when we stopped at Tim Horton’s.
I know this is one of the worst things I can do. Those treats are loaded with bad “stuff”. It was a habit my mother had as well.
I have high cholesterol but refuse to take drugs for it. I know I need to watch what I eat carefully, yet after a few days of denial, I always go back to eating them with my tea.
This morning I decided to stop and think and focus on enjoying just my tea. I have to persevere. I am determined to live healthier. Taking baby steps in the right direction – and really the tea wasn’t so bad on its own.
