No More Excuses

I can rationalize my way into or out of anything. It's too cold to walk outside, I don't have time to exercise, it's wasteful to throw away food so I'll just eat it.
Well folks...It's time to put on my big girl panties and deal with it!
There is no reason I have to stay up until 4 am. Yes I work evenings, but even the latest I've ever come home is midnight.
My goal is to be in bed no later than 2 am. Get up and move my body before work. No more sleeping until noon!
I have a couple of things I can do if I feel like I might binge again. A hot bath is good for lots of things. I can blog. Yes Ron I should have blogged after the first bad day. Having one day of things not going how I'd hoped doesn't have to roll into 2 or 3.
I'm not taking a cold sandwich to work. Instead I'm going to have one of the yummy salads with grilled chicken and light dressing. I don't even have to pay for it right away, I can put it on my tab. How great is that!?!

WooHoo! all good plans!
I have a night owl habit as well, I started setting an alarm to get to bed. :) it was pretty helpful for me to start changing my bedtime routine.

Cheers

Good for you Amy, Only you can decide on if you want to live a healthier lifestyle. Eating healthy and exercise works. As of this coming Tuesday I will have been at it 5 months.. And I will be posting the new 5 month pics of myself(I know I look disgusting) on Tuesday. Live one day at a time and do the best that you can. I was very glad to see this post of yours:)

Hi Amy,
I'm tagging you with a meme! :)
If you don't like them, don't feel obligated! Hope your weekend is going well.

Cheers

Im know what you mean, 1 bad day can so easily become several, weeks or even months. Be strong don't let it! I think that the hardest thing to conquer it that b*****d voice that seems to talk us out of things. I have so many problems with that! Just keep telling it to go away and hopefully one day it will! xxxx
