ha HA!

7:05 bitches! let's see if we can make 6:45 tommorrow.

body issues are becoming a problem again... may have to do the daily food/exercise blog just to keep me on track. i may add time out of bed as well and see if that motivates me at all....

Now that you are settled in one place (and I assume you have health insurance?) maybe it is time to see a nutritionist? My sister's moved to LA but I'm sure I can get you a referral to someone else - let me know, I think it might be really good for you.

i agree with allie re: the eating thing and also think you need to give yourself more credit for the other stuff!

for example, be realistic about what time you get up and follow your natural rhythm. if you know deep down that even though you'll be mad at yourself, you can get away with, say, getting up at 8:05, maybe try setting your alarm for only a few minutes earlier than that, rather than 2 hours earlier, so you're NOT giving yourself essentially way more time in the morning than you need. then if you get up earlier on your own, you'll feel more relaxed. or don't even look at the clock at all. or set it for 8:00 and then set it back 15 mins every day until you're getting up at the time you want to be.

also, maybe going the gym in the morning isn't your thing. i know when i started running, i tried going in the morning and quickly found out that "just wasn't going to work for me." i don't need the pick-me-up in the morning; i need it in the afternoon, when i get back from class and hit a mental wall.

listen more to what your body is telling you and realize that it's OKAY and stop beating yourself up so much! you're already lovely and wonderful, so go with that because that's who you are and that's why we love you.

there you have my $2.00.

but that's the thing, i DON'T sleep until then, i am up at 6:30 or 7 or whatever, i just don't get out of bed. i lay there and really have no good reason to do so. it's not a sleep rhythem thing (sleeping time is over) i am wide awak and lazy. and then when i am rushing around, i really can't figure out what makes me do this.

today was better, woke up at 6 and went to the gym and i feel fantastic:) it gives me energy for the rest of the day and i sleep so much better at night. i think it is that much harder, bc so recently i was so happy with my body (right before the wedding) and now i know i CAN have that (not just pining for when i was 19) it motivates me more but makes me feel worse when i don't to the work. of course, i had a trainer and lived alone and had no life, so the circumstances are a little different. i just need to kick it into gear and stop being a bum. i think these morning swims will help me achieve that.
