Habit: Daily meditation
Restarts: 1

Day 3: 15 minutes
Last night was the first time in a while that I've had glimmers of the intensely "clear" feeling after meditation that I love so much -- possibly a function of the amount of time. I've found that 25-30 minutes is my happy place, historically. I'm not quite there yet. (I could probably force it, but I don't want to do that.)

I also had a thought dance across my mind afterwards that was a reminder of something I based a lot of yoga teachings on in the past. I'll be meditating on that again later. (Haha.)

Yesterday was a fail. I feel rather selfconscious disappearing to my room during the day (sharing a holiday cottage with friends) and fell into bed very tired last night. Too late today but tomorrow I may say I am going for a short nap.

Hard to keep habits up on holidays with other people - the nap idea sounds good, time for yourself is not unreasonable!

Day 6: awareness of hunger VS interest between meals.

Ate breakfast a bit later, because Sunday and caught up a bit on sleep.

So it was pretty easy to wait till 6:40 for dinner.

YAY. No decisions to make, just being sure to drink plenty of water as I worked outside today.

Great idea for a thread, Thud. And probably a good idea for me. It seems I've fallen out of the habit of exercise, and this seems a good way to remind me.

My goal is to exercise 5 days a week. Exercise will consist of: 1 hr pilates OR 45 minute weight machines + free weights OR 45 minute walk OR 3 hrs of gardening/weeding (or a combo of the various types).

Today I walked 3 miles in 50 minutes.

My 90 day "no snacking between meals" habit I'm developing.

Day 7: Complete
Restarts: 1

Comments:

No temptations. Odd thing last night. I had a giant omelette with "holiday sauce" on it yesterday for bfast. I figured that would be the meal of the day. After getting my ass whoopped (self induced) paddle boarding all day yesterday I got home late and thought, "I should really have some protein - my body has been broken down a lot today" So I ate some even though I wasn't hungry. I think that's a first for me that I can remember. I had a small meal. I was using food as medicine rather than pleasure. I'm not sure if it helped out not because I was in extreem pain for most of the night, literally crying out trying to move around. I downed some asprin and it must have helped. I didn't think I was going to be able to go into work today or type. I'm doing the later and will give the former a go.

Busy day so I only got the morning ones in. I am trying to set myself up for success by doing some second thing in the morning. It's a good plan so far.
