Something seems to have changed

 Maybe it was the road trip. Maybe it was just the timing. But something has changed in my head. I am bound and determined to get my sh*t together. I'm tired of wanting to do things and then not doing them. It's time to get on with it. 

Working out. C has made a real great start in his working out. He gets in the pool every day and does his workout. That's awesome. Now, why can't I do the same thing? There is no reason, I just don't. So that's it. Working out every day. Developed a schedule a few weeks ago, now I'm going to follow it religiously. 

Eating. Okay, on the road trip the eating was hit or miss, mostly miss. But that was poor planning on my part. I made assumptions that were patiently incorrect. But, that's behind me. Every day is a new day, every meal is a new meal and what happened in the past is completely irrelevant. So I'm thinking of fasting today until dinner. Just to get a kind of reset and start over. The weird part is that I have not been hungry the entire time we were gone. I mean seriously not hungry. I did not understand it but that's what happened. Last night I ate a big dinner, well big based on what we had been eating, on purpose. I figured a big dinner, at home, would be a kind of reset. That did not work. So today I will fast. Also, I have developed a snacking habit that I need to break immediately. So I'm fasting today and doing a reset on the food. No food until dinner.

Things I want to do. There are things that I want to do and I just don't do them. I want to train Mavy. I pay for Susan Garrett and haven't really used the info in 2 years. I really, really want to train Mavy. I want to make shirts. I love making shirts and now tumblers. Staying on top of my schoolwork. That is critical and something that needs to have a top priority. I have placed too much of a priority on rest and playing games and watching TV. Do I really need to do more of that? I don't think so. 

So, how do I fit all these things in? I make them priorities. I think every Sunday I'm going to make a list of things I want to do the following week and then work on it through the week. Some things need to be planned, like workouts, but other things can fall where they may, like Mavy's training, that can be done anytime I have 3 minutes. Work will be done at work - I will really work to make that happen. And TV is just not going to be important, neither is sitting on the couch and playing my games. But reading will be. Reading will be my go to relaxing activity. Also, I can watch TV as I do other things here in my room. 

And all of this is not to say that I won't have down time, I will. I will just be more judicious with it and not have so much of it. One of the side effects of not doing much is that I don't sleep well. If I rest too much during the day, I have trouble sleeping at night. So this will help my sleep also. 

Okay, first order of business is to prepare for the day and get Mavy walked.
