Today is a typical day for me - in that it was an atypical day. I don't have the typical 40-hour-per-week job. I work 2 part-time jobs. One is the overnight shift and one is days. I don't often know my schedule for more than a couple of days in advance, and sometimes only a matter of hours. I know all of the "shoulds." I SHOULD keep regular sleep patterns and plan my meals and exercise, but it's not happening.
I edited my goals today. I changed my housekeeping goal deadline to March 31st, which gives me another month to get things done around here. I also changed my ticker to reflect my short-term goal, (26 lbs) rather than my whole long-term goal (149 lbs). Hopefully it'll help put things in perspective. The long-term goal just seemed too far off and not real enough.
I won't be writing my blogs to say anything profound. I am committed to writing just once a month - whether I'm doing well or not. This is going to be a journey and I know that sometimes there are bumps in the road. I have the tendency to isolate and to stay away when I am in a negative frame of mind. This time I'm going to try to take the good with the bad and just be here.
This week I've been trying to cut back on my diet soda consumption. I'm also trying to get back into the habit of drinking a lot of water again.
That's about it for now. Til next time...
