Too late for a new years resolution? no way! TWO addictions that I want to stop now!

Not your usual blog post material, but I figure if I am open about these 2 habits I need to change I will be more conscious of being better! One is stealing away my time and the other is stealing away my health. These are 2 habits that I want to start changing NOW!

  1. picking my split ends– this is my stress outlet- whenever I feel any anxiety I reach for my hair as a security and then pick away. It is SO gross I know! I really can’t believe I am typing this, but it is very freeing to let this out in the open. Do any of you struggle with this? I am to the point that I just want to chop off my hair to remove the distraction completely. Time is precious and wasting that on picking hair is ridiculous!
  2. late night snacking– I shouldn’t even use the word snacking. It’s becoming more of a fourth meal. As soon as little Boo goes down to sleep, I get this renewed energy to hurry and accomplish everything I need or want to do and that somehow includes eating!

So now you know my two crazy addictions. I am pledging to myself right now to put my tummy to bed at 8 and find a new outlet when I get stressed!

    Good luck and you can do it!! I used to do that with my hair ALL the time. I can’t really remember what got me to stop… Now though, I twist and twirl my hair, so there’s always these random spots that stick out funny. Not so cute. Ha!

    Hi, my name is Kris and I just polished off a pint of ice cream and a bunch of chips and salsa. Did I mention it was 11 at night and I was vegging in front of a DVD? Tsk tsk. I totally get you with late night fourth-mealing. I plan on “starting over” (again) with my New Year’s resolutions on Monday night. ‘Cause it’s still a weekend on Sunday night!

    Also I’ve had short hair most of my life (like, boy short) and I love it. My mom is begging me to grow it out but both hubby and I like me better with short hair. In fact, my hair is about 6 inches long now and it’s driving me nuts!

    Yeah I have a bad problem with snacking.. now that I am fasting during the month of Ramadan.. I realize how much of my eating is related to stress. I notice I’ll walk to the kitchen whenever I’m feeling stressed out!! so bad. I wish you all the best in curbing your addictions and taking some tips from you! and I hope that I will be able to continue being snack free after Ramadan!
