The Good, The Bad and the Ugly--About Me

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate-Kansas City Homes

This is an interesting challenge for AR bloggers--have to really think about what I want to admit about myself regarding faults!  Fortunately, I think I have more good habits than bad!  Here we go:


One of my Good Habits

Exercising!  Several years ago I joined a workout class and I have been consistantly going four days a week, getting up at 5:30am to get it done!  It's tempting at times to stay under the covers, especially on the cold winter mornings.  However, I have noticed that my body has adjusted to the schedule and quite often I will wake up a few minutes before the alarm.  Although I still have a sagging-in-places middle aged body, exercising does help keep the weight down. Another bonus:  I love the podcasts I listen to during the workout!


One of my Bad Habits

Sweets addiction!  Yes, I have a sweet tooth.  I try not to indulge too  much, but after dinner I do get a craving for a piece of chocolate or cookies and milk.  Fortunately, I bake my own treats and stick with low sugar and whole grain flour in the recipes.  I do like baking and find that it's difficult for me to eat pre-processed doughnuts, cakes and cookies because they just don't have the same flavor as home made. So it is easier to not indulge on store bought treats in the office.


One of my Ugly Habits

Easily Annoyed!  I really have to reign this one in.  I can get easily annoyed at another agent or a client if they ask for the same information over and over again after I've already provided it--or if I ask them for a document or follow up info and there is no I have to keep asking and asking.  I tell myself "don't sweat the small stuff; this is just how most people are".  Still, I get annoyed with myself for having this problem!


So there you go..just writing about the bad and ugly habit is making me more conscious of this behavior. Last night I just had a piece of dark chocolate as my dessert!

Good morning Mary.

Exercise is not in my routine, don't eat a lot of sweets but I do get annoyed by other agents like you do.

I used to exercise every day but fell off the wagon. The docs have been after me to return to daily exercise. Procrastination is one of my bad habits Mary Hutchison, SRES, ABR

Hi Mary, Thanks for sharing your habits in the contest. I must confess I get irritated as well when I provide info over and over again.

Thanks for your post! I'm with you on the first one about the exercise. As to the sweets, I found myself craving something every evening - I'm not sure if the craving was because it was a routine, or because I needed that sugar. Anyway, I just stopped. I haven't had sweets in about eight months, and I've found I don't want them anymore. I think I probably overcorrected - your method of making sure your sweets are healthier is a better one.

Mary I do not consider Sweets a "bad habit" and if you lived in Los Angeles you would be annoyed quite often:) so that is not an "ugly habit" either:))Endre
