I don't think I have ever really thought about the true meaning if this saying "old habits die hard". I mean, for real, bad habits are probably old habits and they are really hard to break! Sweet tea is going to be the death of me.
Growing up in the somewhat south, my food habits were less than stellar. There were a lot of bad habits to break, including sweet tea. But I did it. I had given it up for over a year when I got pregnant with our oldest. I know it is doable.
I had even gone three weeks last month without it. I was feeling good about it and thinking the habit was broken. Then I went on a four night trip with all three kids by myself. The drive there alone did me in. It was lunch time, I was starting to get sleepy and we still had two hours to go. Cracker Barrel up ahead? We will take it! And a tea to go too please.
With reigning in my bad eating habits after all the pregnancies and nursing, I needed to break this habit. Since that trip, I have slowly slipped back into the every day habit. Ahhh! Well not every single day, but still too much. I thought I could enjoy it on that trip, but I was wrong. Very wrong. Apparently three weeks is not long enough to indulge in something you had been addicted to previously.
This is is where I try to give myself some grace and make efforts to do better tomorrow. I'm very aware of the health effects of the sugar and also caffeine; my body doesn't need either of those right now. My motivation has to be stronger than the desire. Join me in kicking an addiction you have, food, sugar, shopping, etc.
