I feel so bad at bedtime and then "hung over" in the morning. There is a void I am trying to fill, and sweets is what I am turning to. My food tracking at night is not happening and that would help a great deal to keep me in reality. <BR> <BR> The "void" I have is from the fatigue, frustration, and sadness in my life.

Sat, 7 Apr 2012 06:46:12 EST So ashamed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4822807 I go MIA when not doing well. Why is it after getting home from work some nights I stuff myself??? I get completely out of control and end up feeling sick by bedtime. I have everything needed for success so why do I do this to myself???

The big down fall is getting on the computer while drinking that first cup of coffee. So it will not be turned on till I am eating breakfast. My daily plan is written. It looks so doable on paper, if only.... <BR> <BR> <BR> Have a great day!! Mon, 16 Jan 2012 07:36:42 EST Starting off the New Year kinda slow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4656095 I really thought my enthusiasm would be stronger. It is not and all I really want to do is take a day off from work & clean my house. I am taking two days off at the end of the month but that is not helping me now. Whining time is over and time to get ready for work. <BR> <BR> Wed, 4 Jan 2012 06:22:52 EST
