This is crazy. My whole week has been out of kilter. Sleeping past my normal wake up time, not taking my morning walk since Monday, going to bed at 11 pm, and now as I went to enter my breakfast and lunch nutrition and realized I had forgotten to eat breakfast. I never skip breakfast and this has really thrown me off. Luckily I brought a honey crisp apple, so I will have that with some almonds now that I am at work.
Message to myself. The coming holidays are a very disruptive time, so I truly need to be habitual in keeping with the program. Exercise, eat right, get plenty of rest. The other stuff, fit it in around the the really important "care for myself" routine. Habits do not have to be bad for you, though we do most often associate habits in the context of "bad habits".
I recognize that this week I tried to do too much and didn't plan around the big disruptive event I had on Tuesday when I worked the local election. I cancelled my Monday night "event" but only cause I had to do election set up Monday night. That was a good thing. But I let the 16 hour "work" day on Tuesday throw me off completely, eating "fast" food on my 2 45-minute breaks and trying to catch up on mail, email, housework that evening after 9:30 pm. Okay I deserved to sleep in a little on Wednesday, but I should have made my healthy lunch to take with me and accommodated my walk at lunch time to get back on the program.
Apple and almonds eaten. Plan to walk the shopping center tonight before the dinner & lecture tonight at church. Will go home right after it is over and to bed!
And get back up on the "horse" tomorrow.
