A New Day...Small step to a New Week!

Sunday, September 18, 2011

I made a list of all the things that I felt was wrong with me and I think the majority of my list has to do with my weight. 3/4 of the time I forget to eat. Rarely ever do I reach a point where I think or say to myself, "I'm hungry". My wife has had to remind me to eat for almost 11 years now. I rarely sleep unless I'm going through depression which I have fought my whole life. I have basically refused to take the meds for it because I HATE the side effects. I find other ways to beat the depression now with new hobbies. I deal with headaches on a daily basis in which I drink water or apple juice like crazy! I have smoked for the majority of my life. This has got to stop at some point. I'm so busy taking care of my wife, our home, pets, farm land etc etc that I rarely feel like even exercising. I have been told that i have a slow metabolism because of my eating and sleeping habits.
NOW I have decided to overcome these obstacles in a more tactical way.
I have set different alarms on my phone to remind me to eat.
I have made a daily-hourly time list and typed in everything that I need to do every hour. With this list I will check off everything I do AFTER I complete it.
I am going to try to listen to easy listening channel (music only no lyrics) while I try to sleep. I tried repetitive writing again and I just got ticked off because my hands began to hurt.
I have bought my last carton of Kools. I have got to quit smoking even if it does turn me into a wicked witch!
When I watch TV, I will do workouts like riding my bike and other exercises.
I figure the only times I won't be able to go by my list is when I'm taking my wife for her 6hr chemo treatment because this is an all day event. 2 hr drive there 6 hr treatment and 2hr drive home. BUT I can always double up on most of it the day before or the day after. Just split it up. Either way, where there is a will THERE is a WAY.
In the morning, Monday the 19th will be the beginning of another beginning. I feel like I have fell off the horse so much but I REFUSE to give up! I will keep getting back on that horse until I meet my goals. From now on I'm taking my own advice... "Rage against the Storms and Smile at the Sun" emoticon

    It looks like you have a good plan of attack down. This will be hard to get into at first, but you'll be thanking yourself for all of your hard work.
