Monday, monday....

Monday, August 16, 2010

Last night I had every intention to get up early this morning and cycle to the train and then to work.

This morning was another story, I had a very long argument with myself because if I go by train I ought to get up at five in order to be at the office at seven, train leaves at 6.22 and it takes about fifteen minutes to get to the train station... I woke at twenty to six and I really hate to stress in the morning so my project of health was in danger.

And I knew that if I went by car I do cycle at lunch hour but still... I decided that it is not realistic to leave home at six a clock because it means that I have to get up too early. So I chose the 7.24 train and that worked. It does mean that I did not start work until eight but I feel really good about myself as I have done 30 minutes of cycling already and it will be thirty minutes more getting home this afternoon.

I am starting to think that I ought to focus really hard on two things - to get going in a good way in the morning because when I have a start like today I get a lot done because I feel so energetic and "good".

The other thing is not to start bingeing at night - my motivation and arguments fly out the window when I am home alone and tired...

Today I need to mow the lawn and that will take about an hour and will also exhaust me especially after all this biking. Just for today I will be very careful about eating this evening, call some OA-friends and mail "done eating" to my Overeater team... it might help.

Apart from doing a good thing for my health I have also done a good thing for my wallet - pure petrol money is about 60 skr saved.

    I'm sure you'll sort out your exercise regime. I used to nibble a lot in the evenings. The best thing I found is to have something sweet, fruit is best, then keep your mind busy to take it off food. It works for me, most of the time.
    Hope your cold goes away soon.

    You mentioned OA. I have been investigating going to some meetings here in Mo. I go to Al-Anon, have you found it helpful?

    You have a good plan so take it one day at a time and make adjustments along the way depending on how you feel and when you get up....I find this time of year is easier to get up and exercise before work but when winter comes its tougher because its so dark outside!! yuk!! Have a great day!!
