Recently I realized that I'd picked up a few habits. I don't know if I'm getting old and set in my ways, or if I'm just boring, or I just know what I like and go with it.
I've noticed that not a day goes by without these three things.
#1- a can of Mandarin Oranges. I eat fresh fruit too, but I've gotten in the habit of eating a whole can of these at least once a day. Sometimes I splurge and have a two cans day. When they are on sale for 99 cents, I buy a couple dozen cans at once.
#2 Peanut Butter Balance Bars. Oh my, I eat too many of them. My favorite snack, or meal replacement. If I lived alone, I'd probably eat bars and cans of fruit all day and have nothing else in my cabinets. Except maybe popcorn. But, if I lived all alone and didn't have other people to feed, I'll bet I'd go to the movies a couple nights a week and have popcorn for dinner there, so I wouldn't need popcorn in my cabinets.
Luckily, I have a houseful of people who require normal, regular, and balanced meals that don't come in a bar or a can, so I think I'll be okay nutrition-wise. I rarely get a chance to ignore mealtimes and most nights I'm busy chopping fresh veggies and cooking healthy meals.
My worst daily habit is #3- Toasty Toes. Now that Spring is coming, I can slowly wean myself off of these. But since my studio has a cement floor, my toes still get chilly and I have to force myself to stop wearing them even when the temp outside gets above 60.
. They are about a dollar a day for the warmest, happiest feet and worth every penny to me. The heat stays going for at least 6 hours, sometimes 8-9.
I've experimented with new Ugg boots, that I got on clearance at the end of the season, and the wool lining is helping to wean me off of the Toasty Toes a bit. Although I found out that wool socks, with Toasty Toes, down inside Uggs is pure heaven.
There is nothing better than sitting at my desk, with my feet warm and cozy, while snacking on a Peanut Butter Balance bar and a can of oranges.
