I WISH I HAD drank more water today. I drank diet soda most of the day – several during lunch and two twenty ounce bottles at work. But no water. I hear it almost every time I talk to anyone about dieting or losing weight – “You should drink more water”. I read it on health articles and wellness books – “You should drink more water”. I KNOW I should drink more water – and today I WISH I HAD.
I WISH I HAD attended my OA meeting this morning. I just got an email from Rich R – he runs a morning phone meeting that I have attended twice. I don’t enjoy the meetings because for the most part it seems like women talking about their feeling – but to be honest, I’m just beginning to understand what this addiction is about and maybe if I spent more time understanding my feeling about food and what I’m feeling when I overeat – I will find better ways to cope with the things that trigger my bad behavior.
I WISH I HAD gone to bed last night earlier. Staying up late means midnight snacking or at least the temptation. Not to mention that I’m not really producing anything of quality after 11pm. Most of my best blog writing is before 9, my best website development activities are before 9, my best kid time has to be before 8:30 (they go to bed at 8:30) – I do get some quality time with Stephanie between 9 and 11 – but after 11… do I really need the TV time? Does the Twitter community really have to know what I’m doing after 9pm?
I WISH I HAD worked out this morning. If I had gone to bed on time, I might have been more motivated to get out this morning and run – or to the gym to lift. I stayed in bed. Workouts are almost as important as my diet if I want long term weight loss – which I do.
I WISH I HAD. But wishing won’t change anything – I CAN drink more water before the day is gone. I CAN go to bed on time tonight. I CAN go to the OA meeting tomorrow morning. I CAN workout tomorrow morning. So… check with me tomorrow and see what I DID.
