This is how time feels lately. It's going fast and I'm not sure exactly why. I know as you get older time feels to go faster, but I always thought that was on the level of years. Lately, it feels like the days and hours are going faster. Stop. Slow down. School just started a minute ago and we are damn near at fall break already. Yikes. I feel like I can feel the days getting shorter and cooler. It will be Christmas before we know it.
And boom, I just went down a rabbit hole that took me 15 minutes. I sat down to write this and had nothing on my mind, then bam, I'm off. I think that is part of the reason time flies so quickly. I go down these rabbit holes that I think will be a quick detour and end up being minutes or hours even. And that is time just lost, gone.
Anyway, back to the point of this post. I have made significant progress in cutting the Facebook cord. Except for yesterday, I only got on Facebook at work during my lunch hour. That was awesome. It freed up so much time and I got a whole lot done while at school. Yay!!!! Also, except for yesterday, I got over 10,000 steps in each day. Yay!!! Again. Yesterday was lab day and test day so I spent much of my day sitting down instead of walking around talking. Which explains both things.
Food has been much better too. Instead of getting crazy about it, I've just been working on eating the right things in the right shifts. Well, except for the cake on Wednesday and the milkshake last night. I've had a real craving for sweets lately though. I don't give in as often as I want them, but I have been eating a little here and there. Need to stop that.
Otherwise, things have been good. I've been using my planner a whole lot more than I have in the last couple of months and it really makes a difference. I track my steps, my meditation, and even the training of Mavy in there. Really helps to keep me focused and on track. Plus, it's a confidence builder to see the pages all filled out. Makes me feel like I'm actually doing things and time just isn't passing me by.
Okay, time to get the day started. Been up for almost 2 hours and have just been sitting here. Time to move.
