I am a procrastinator. Much better than I used to be, but I still have the tendency to put things off. Not until the night before they're do, but the week before. I leave myself plenty of time, but in my panicky brain I think, omgsh I have so much to do and only seven days to do it! In actuality, one day would be sufficient, so I'm not sure what I get so freaked out about.
I have two victories to celebrate! I had pizza and alcohol yesterday in lieu of a Thanksgiving dinner. Immediately upon arriving home from picking them up, I threw away three slices of pizza and poured half the alcohol down the drain. I got a nice buzz and ate my pizza, then took a nap. When I woke up, I thought--blech. That wasn't worth it. I'm done with this stuff. I do think my addiction is very close to being broken :)
My second victory--goodbye, heartburn! It used to be a daily occurrence from my bad eating and drinking habits, but it rarely occurs now! In fact, the only time I get heartburn is when I ride my stationary bike. I've heard this is not uncommon, as your body is bouncing around, stomach acid gets pushed up into the esophagus, etc etc. Anyway, I am very pleased with this, because heartburn suuuuuucks.
Now I'm making myself write a four-page reflection on The Accidental Buddhist by Dinty W. Moore. It wasn't a bad book, by any means. I quite enjoyed it. I just don't enjoy having to write about why I enjoyed it -_-
I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving :)
