Slip Sliding Away
Friday, May 29, 2020
It's been a mixed bag since Tuesday. The day goes well until evening.
I am a night owl. This month I thought I got it turned around, going to bed earlier and staying there.
The last few days my brain won't shut off and let me sleep so I get back up. Remember when you let your children stay up late for a special event? My inner child likes it.
The night-time munchie monster and I have a party. It's not crazy like a binge. It's sugary or salty snacking. It's too many calories for the day.
Last October I decided to stop added sugar. Perfect timing, before all the high calorie holidays. The picture below has been at the forefront of my thoughts since then, flashing like a neon sign. (Thinking of you, SLIMMERJESSE.)
I am not fond of sweets.
I am tired. I am not hungry.
Changes I could make in the evening:
Take a break from the computer and stretch. Old bones don't move so easy...
Make a cup of coffee or tea.
Refill the water glass when it's empty.
Ignore the inner child and listen to my head. Say no to anything that doesn't line up with what I am trying to achieve.
Go to bed when it's late and avoid all of this nonsense.
Nutrition, exercise, and sleep are important keys to losing weight and being healthy.
