Up late over-stressing about bad habits

Bad Habit #1: I'm up too late
Bad Habit #2: I took way too many luxuries with the sweets last week
Bad Habit #3: I'm beginning to dread what challenges lay ahead professionally

I had to come up with a blog for this because it really helps to have your comments and reassure myself in the process. I've spent some time reading over things I've written in the past few years, and they have helped me realize that my habits are much better than they were before. For example, I can't believe that mini-eclairs and klondikes both made their way into my freezer in the past year. HA! It would be one thing if I said they were for other people, but I'm the only person who eats my groceries! How in the world would I expect myself to behave when I have 36 mini delicious reasons not too! Wow... talk about a challenge.

So, in comparison, the cheats I took in the past week were NOT a big deal. Yes, they probably set off my progress a bit, but they will be easier to get over than something that would have sat in my freezer day after day, tempting me. However, I do have a feeling that the food I ate this weekend has something to do with this anxiety and paranoia about backsliding. I tell you, sugar is beginning to be more trouble than its worth!

Staying up late.. is probably related from being out really late on Friday night, then trying to catch up on sleep all weekend. I'm going to have to wait it out a few days til I get used to my schedule again. Next time I go out, I'll have to plan to come home earlier.

Lastly, I have to remember to have faith in God this week and not in my situation... I can't focus while thinking about all the things that have gone wrong (or possibly could). I'm doing great with a lot of things, and will focus on them now til I drift off to sleep.

Tonight is a great night to drift off to sleep doing a visualization exercise I picked up in the Body Sculpting Bible for Women... I am relaxed.. I am focused on the following thought....

    You know, you can only stay awake so late thinking about shoulda, woulda, coulda's but didn'ts. It's much better to read yourself to sleep, or whatever works for you other than brooding, and start fresh the next day. You need your sleep for your body to repair itself and for your mind to be at its sharpest, so why not try to let go of the stress and get some zzzz's. We've all been there. Start fresh in the morning and try a smaller goal that you can accomplish...say like cleaning out a closet or getting rid of old clothes for donation, or take a simple walk somewhere that works for you, rather than slipping up. You'll feel better and you'll be more apt to keep going. So keep going! :)

    ok so what is your plan to overcome those 3 bad habits? Sweets are always a problem for me. I can't leave them alone if they are in the house.

    Oh how I've been there. My mind mulling over the stressful events. I had to keep reminding myself I'm human and need the sleep!
