Day 3- Long Days09/11/2009
I believe that my days are too long. But whose aren’t? In the next few weeks as I adjust my priorities in order to be successful on this journey I will need focus on my schedule in order to reflect my number one priority. In the past few days I have made sensible food choices and yet because my day is so long I’m going to bed hungry. I will research some snack ideas this weekend and prepare them so that I may mindlessly reach into the frig for something that is good for me. It seems pretty basic and maybe a “no dah” solution, but I have really never taken the time to think these steps through. I know so much about how to diet but a diet is not what I’m on. I’m just making better choices for the long run. This is not a short-term plan I’m in it for the long haul. As I adjust my schedule I will also need to find more time to sleep and exercise. I’m so excited with the food choices right now that I know the other components will slide into place with a little planning. Being proactive will take the emotional responses and justifications right out of the equation. Keeping it simple and making good choices everyday.
