I work shift work so I eat and sleep at different times and my schedule is always out of whack. But I generaly sleep for the same amount of hours each night. To weigh myself accurately, I jump on the scale right when I wake up before a shower. Remember clothing has weight 211 works for me
Until a few years ago, I hated grocery shopping. I would put it off and off (which we all know leads to unhealthy eating). Then I decided to be grateful that I could grocery shop without having to worry about money. That wasn't a luxury I had as a child. We almost never had food in the house. We shopped daily for what we could afford to eat that night. I admit I felt horrible when I realized how many years I'd wasted grumbling about doing something as a child I dreamed about doing.
So next time your dreading that trip to the store, Stop and feel blessed that you can afford that trip to the store. 334
No one likes to think of their own end, but it is inevitable. I often hear people talk about how they are too busy to do the things they'd like to do. Remember a couple of things- 1) No one was ever on their deathbed wishing they spent more time at work or cleaning the house. 2) Never feel you are indispensable. Go to any graveyard, I would imagine that there are people there who thought the very same about themselves... yet, the world kept turning, society didn't collapse. Live, laugh, love.
Many culture don't look at death with dread, they are aware of it and live every moment as if it were their last.
