I have no idea what to title this.

So I was a bit under my calories yesterday, but I figured it evened out from the day before. Probably not the best way of thinking, but I was still over 1200, so thats good.

I gave myself a goal to up my exercise this week from 20 min on the elliptical every day to 25, but I just cant get out of bed that 5 min earlier while its still dark out. I woke up at the same time as I normally do and did the 25 min, but then with the stretching and all that, I was almost late for work (very strict schedule in the morning!). I know I just need to do it, but I haven't hit a plateau yet, knock on wood. I wish Daylight Savings would kick in (or end, or whatever the heck it does in the spring) already cause waking up in the dark is NOT FUN ANYMORE.

Wednesday nights a friend and I teach 5th and 6th graders beading after school. Last night for some reason they were all ravenous, and they dug out her graham crackers, peanut butter and marshmallows and had a feast. I abstained from it all, and didn't feel like I missed out on anything. So thats good.

    It sounds like you are making excellent progress. There are dark days: mornings and nights literally and figuratively. We just have to learn to take them one day at a time. And it sounds like you are doing that!! Great progress.

    Um, I hate to tell you this, but daylight savings is going to make it worse. In spring we "spring forward" and hour, so if the sun's been rising at, say, 6:30, it will then be rising at 7:30. :-)

    I know what you mean, though. Getting up in the morning is so hard. It's dark out. People should be asleep when it's dark!
