Making progress

This is who I have to beat/change/defeat however you want to look at it, me.  In many ways, I am my own worst enemy. I get these ideas in my head and let them control me. I let things happen that shouldn't happen. So this is the person I need to beat. Me!!!

Having said that, and keeping that in mind as I try to change my way of thinking, yesterday went well. I needed to go to school for a couple of hours to get some stuff done, and I walked there an back. Yay me!!!!  Then I did some desk stuff I needed to do and at 3:30 went to Target just to cruise around. Now I know that I can't go spending money all the time, but once in a while is cool while trying to break bad habits. I spent 90 minutes cruising Target, Ross's, and Famous Footwear. Spent money I didn't need to. But, I got 10,000 steps. Yay me!!!! Got my food all in the right shifts too. Yay me!!! 

Another thing I've fallen into is putting meditation off until the last minute before I go to bed. I get it done, but I usually have to delay bedtime while I meditate. So I'm going to start meditating before I get on my computer. So here's the routine: I come home from school, talk with Hubby for a little while, mindlessly eat some food (always on shift though), then turn on computer and TV, and sit mindlessly for an hour or so. Many times I doze off in my chair. So I'm going to change that. Before I turn any electronics on, I will meditate. I think that will provide a nice transition from the workday to home. When I go to the gym after school, I will still meditate before any electronics get turned on. I'm even going to hang a post-it note on my monitor that says Meditate!!! I like this plan.

I am a creature of habit, I just need to make sure they are positive habits.
