I Must Confess. . . . (And Random Questions.)
Monday, October 10, 2011
I cheated this weekend! I have some items that weren't good for me. I had a soda, chips, and ate too much. I felt like a little piggy afterwards and am upset that I lost my self-control. It's just so hard when you are the only one on the diet and everyone around you is eating all the really bad things that you want but know you do not need. I have found a solution. My husband is going to do the diet with me. He isn't happy about it because he doesn't like the tastes of the shakes but he understands that I need his support. I mean we are with each other 24/7. We go to school together and study together. We live up at the school so if he wants to grab lunch and I'm sitting there with my shake and smell his food, it makes me want to cheat even more. The temptation is too great. That will make another thing that is different this time around. Having someone to do it with at home and school. Just until I really get into the diet and through my adjustment period. Does anyone out there know how long it takes to form a habit? I probably need to know that. And when does the diet get easier? Does it ever happen or is it a constant struggle? I scared that I'll quit if it never gets easier. Everyone says that I'm a strong willed person but, I don't think I am because I have such a hard time when it comes to sticking with a diet and even studying. I procrastinate so much and I'm not good at time management. Does yoga really help with stress and anger problems. Someone told me that it would. And what are other exercises that are 30 minutes or less to help me get started exercising? I took the stairs to the 3rd floor to get to one of my classes instead of the elevator and by the time I got to the top I was huffing and puffing. Also is there a way that I can get my stretch marks to fade a little. I know it's probably impossible for them to go away completely but is there something I can rub on the to lighten them? Wow, I am really jumping from subject to subject today. It's probably because I have a lot on my mind. I have 2 tests this week, a really hard test next week, and an extremely hard test the week after that, that I have to make a 90 or higher on! Tips on how to focus and get things done would be helpful. Okay, well, I'll stop rambling and go back to reading my chapters for my CE test tomorrow.
