Well...here I am...
...and I did it again.
Yep - that's right, I got up before the crack o'dawn and walked. It was a bit tougher today - it took 3 slaps on the snooze alarm before I got up, but I did. That extra 10 minutes was good for the sleeping, but tough for getting there on time. I really had to hoof it to get ready and get out the door.
We walked to the next post today, so just a little further, but we walked a little faster and got back a few minutes earlier than yesterday. I still didn't like it.
I'm looking for and trying to internalize the positive aspects of this walking at the crack of dawn thing. So along with getting this *THING* done before 6:30 in the morning, I'm getting an awesome parking spot, so there is a plus to that. As well, by the time 8 am rolled around, I'd been up for hours and had gotten lots of work done.
The good thing about all of this - I don't have to get up way before the crack of dawn again until Monday. I know I shouldn't look at it like this, but I do and I'm working on it!
Food today wasn't good. There was an event at work and a buffet lunch was served. I hadn't taken my lunch, so the buffet it was. I've avoided buffets for years because I've never handled them well -
like a pig to a trough. It was a bbq pork sandwich with beans, cole
slaw, and salad. While the food wasn't the most nutritious, I also took
too much of it. Not good. Then I swiped a mini Snickers mid-afternoon. It's interesting because I feel my behavior at lunch was much worse than my behavior about the Snickers. I did stop at one with the Snickers and I did savor the taste - I think that's okay.
So, hubster was out for a work dinner tonight and asked if I wanted to join them, but I declined and came home. When I thought about dinner, my thoughts strayed to all sorts of things and I considered a lot of options...all of them bad.
And why did I consider them???? Because I was actually saying to myself, "Well - you've already screwed the day up. Might as well go ahead." I caught myself before I tossed in the towel and ate trashy stuff. I wonder how often I've done that without realizing it? I'm gonna have to keep an eye on that.
There's painter's tarp all over the house - folks are here painting. They'll paint the dining room tomorrow - it's a beautiful red. We've painted the ceiling a light yellow to remove the starkness of the red/white combo and to remove the Christmas feel. I'm excited. I've not posted about all the house renovation/remodeling we're doing, but we're making good progress and the house is looking mahvelous!
