Day 14 of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge-3 Healthy Habits

3 Healthy Habits

I love how vague this blog topic is. L-O-V-E. Because I don't really want to talk about 3 Healthy Habits that I have. I'd rather talk about 3 Healthy Habits that I'd LIKE to have! It's not that I don't have 3 Healthy Habits...I just don't think they are all that interesting. Or fun....or maybe not totally habits...maybe they are still options that I employ MOST of the time. And that isn't exactly a habit, is it?

1) Self-care- I'd like to make self-care more of a habit than an afterthought. There were many years where things like massages, pedicures, exercise were the last thing on my list after everyone else was taken care of. Then if I truly had no time to do anything else I would finally show up on the overwhelming list of things to do. And even then it would be EXHAUSTING to care for myself. Now I don't even have kids and it appears that I do the same thing! No excuses! My intent for 2016 is to practice self-care until it becomes a habit. This is the only body I have and I need to care for it!

2) Healthy Eating-I've made huge strides in this area and I'm going to continue doing this until it is my norm. I've started planning meals and using 
Yummly app to plan recipes and shop for them. I really love eating clean although I'm not interested or willing to eat Paleo...I really want to keep up the good work until it becomes my lifestyle. 

3) Car care- Are you sensing a trend here? I am the worst car parent ever! 

This meme popped up in my "on this day" memory on my Facebook page today. I've been long known for letting my gas gauge go to empty and then count the miles until I know I will REALLY run out until I fill it up. I tell myself that I'm conserving the energy to go to the gas station...but it is really pure laziness. I had someone tell me once that it was my last remaining "living on the edge" activity. Since I don't drink or smoke or party etc...that's my only "bad-girl" act of rebellion remaining. 

That's sad...oh so sad.

Now I feel depressed and want to act out with unhealthy food. See #2

But I digress. I want to add car care to my list of habits including such things like:

1) Washing car more than once a year
2) Getting oil changed more than once a year
3) Cleaning out the car more than once a year
4) Getting gas when I'm at 1/4 of a tank
5) Not leaving coffee cups in it until I have to purchase new dishware since I'm out of coffee cups

So there we go! If you know me IRL hold me accountable! 

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post about where I will be in 5 years! Hopefully not stranded by the side of the road out of gas !!
