I sitting here and have been for the past 30 mins resisting over and over the temptation to go upstairs and get into the cookies. I liked the comment by JOUISSANTE yesterday who said to say, "Not today, but maybe tomorrow!" Well, I know that I'm allowing myself to have two cookies at my brothers and sisters play this afternoon, so I'm telling myself, "NO, not RIGHT NOW!" It is so strange! For the past couple of weeks I haven't felt hungry (although I ate all the time, which could be my problem right now), but now that I've told myself no to overeating, my stomach is growling, I feel very hungry and I think that in exactly 11 minutes I will go make myself lunch!!! But I'm forcing myself to wait because I am in control! I tell my body when it can eat and when it can't eat! I have control!!!
I did join the sleep challenge because I know that when I don't have control over my sleep habits, I become very irritable and grouchy usually from oversleeping. I'm supposed to go to bed at about 10:00-10:30pm and get up no more than 8 hours and no less then 7 hours from that time. To start I'm supposed to go to bed on time 3 days this week. Last night I watched a movie with my dad, so I actually didn't get to bed until 11:15pm. But I did relax for about 10 minutes by reading. It took me a couple of minutes to actually fall asleep just because I was thinking about everything I had done yesterday. But I'm pretty sure that I fell asleep within five or so minutes. I slept throughout the night and woke up at 6:15am without the alarm clock. My mind wanted me to roll over and go back to sleep, but I turned on the lamp and woke up. The only thing that I wish I could shake is the headache that I've been waking up with lately. Maybe my getting me on a schedule will help. Right now I feel like my eyes are heavy...almost like I could take a short nap right now. Maybe I will after I go eat lunch.
