Ok sleep, ok wakeup. Definitely had problems sleeping cause of all the tea I drank before bed last night (friends from China are visiting). I’m formally declaring the implosion of Pantry Check, Food Recording, and my Water habit.

I think my Pantry Check habit does nothing for my food habit - a solid Sunday Meal Prep does so much more. My Food Recording does nothing either - I have a post coming up on the Whole Life Challenge, and the reason I like it is that it’s more functional. Recording food on most apps is more about calories, and I’d rather get away from them to focus on quality of food. So instead, the Whole Life Challenge has you taking off points for every serving of a non permitted food item. The “Flash Diet” also seems more functional in that it provides an in-the-moment method of stepping back AND a food log. Lastly, my water habit had no impact on whether or not I woke up early, and I really don’t have much to go on in terms of research for the pure act of hydrating more. If I need it, I’ll add it as a regular habit.

I think there are items I’ve brainstormed that can replace these - for example, a new food recording system, something in the morning that gets me happy and eager to get out of bed (like my original bacon and water habit was meant to do), and, most importantly, a process-oriented half step between Meal Prep Sundays and my goal of eating mastery. But first I’ve got to clear the path.
