Why is it that at bedtime, I feel the need to take something up with me to snack on? I like to lay in bed and read…usually with a bowl of ice cream or a “kid’s” cereal. I’ve been doing this for several months now and this is the what, 3rd night I am going without? Thinking it’s mind over matter. I don’t really WANT ice cream or cereal…or ANYTHING! I think I just want to hold a bowl/set it on my belly and use a spoon to eat with. So I have a happy medium: TEA! Gonna take my soup mug up to the bed with me just like old times. And instead of Rocky Road or Apple Jacks, it’s Triple Leaf! I can feel good about that tonight and tomorrow as my insides will surely thank me in the AM (Sorry, TMI).

I’ve started eating right (no calorie counting, just AWARENESS) and small workouts (no more than 25 mins at a time) which have been working well for me. I don’t want to do too much too soon as I know that way it’s harder to push through. I am just at the beginning [again] though, so the workouts will intensify in quality AND quantity. For now I am taking it slowly. I don’t feel like having history repeat itself with that “go hard or go home” attitude. Just putting one foot in front of the other is working out just fine for now…
