Well I made it from September 20 to March 20. Surviving winter in Montana is no easy feat. By March I feel like Sisyphus, condemned to roll the big boulder of winter up the hill.
I set my intention at the last equinox to remember to keep each of these elements a part of my day. Just that commitment really helped this year. I think that I did well for all of these.
running or other areobic exercise
time for friends and family
So with that in mind, I thought I'd set my intentions for the next 6 months. It's the warmer half of the year, so I have no excuses. I'm going after my WORST habits, or at least the top three.
1. I rarely sit down to eat. I eat on the run because I'm in a hurry to get somewhere. Of course I skip meals too, then eat whatever shows up because I'm hungry. I AM GOING TO SIT DOWN TO EAT.
2. I eat when I cook. Then I'm not that hungry when I actually do sit down with my husband and son. So I AM GOING TO WAIT to eat until I sit down. Wow, delayed gratification. I can do that.
3. I love sugar. Once I start, I can't stop. Recently, it's girl scout cookies. I've been trying to change my relationship with sugar for all of my adult life. I'm going to work on this. Any ideas are welcome.
