ChocolateBunny's Journal, 08 August 2009

I'm finally getting back on the wagon, but I knew it wouldn't be immediate. I decided to start by getting my eating under control, which I've been doing, but I'm starting to realize that in order to eat right, I have to sleep right. It's the summer, so I have no classes, so I'm so prone to staying up until 4am and waking up at 1pm. That's all fine and dandy, but if I tell myself that my last meal is around 8pm, what am I gonna do for all those hours? You're right, BINGE. Plus, there's something about eating at night that just makes me lose control. During the day I'm so good, and I watch everything that goes through my mouth. But once it's after midnight, it's like a free for all. So, I've decided to nip that in the bud by getting back on a kind of strict sleeping schedule. I want to be IN BED by ten, and sleeping before midnight, and I plan to wake up around 9am. Well, my ultimate goal is 8am. Today I woke up at 10. Though, I couldn't go to sleep last night. I didn't end up closing my eyes til around three, but I forced myself to not sleep until noon.

I realize I'm much more productive when I wake up early in the morning, plus my eating is good cause I can eat my regular meals at the times that I'm supposed to. Plus, it'll be easier to go to sleep without stuffing my face cause I won't be starving by the time I lay down.

Anyhoo, how is everyone else doing? Hope you guys are having a good weekend.

Also, getting regular good night's sleep will help your body lose weight. Not to mention feel better doing it. I notice when I get off my normal sleep schedule I too am more likely to make bad food decisions, I know when I'm tired I don't want to put the mental energy into choosing good food, and ending up eating whatever sounds good--which is not usually healthy stuff. I also am more into exercising if I'm not tired and on a regular sleep schedule. I think things fall into place much easier when you're making concerted decisions to take good care of your body! hope things are going well!! (sounds like they are in terms of jumping back on that wagon!--great work--getting back on can be tough!)

I have fallen off the wagon too but I am back on as well. Glad to see we all have weakness as well as determination. Good luck
