It's always a new day

Saturday, October 24, 2015

And thank goodness for that. Night time snacking is still kicking my butt, but every morning I wake up with hope and desire to do better. Today feels more hopeful than usual because I got a human amount of sleep last night. 9 hours - that's about double what I managed the 4 nights before. So this morning I'm feeling no pain. Looking forward to catching up on chores this weekend. The kid wants to get her learner's driving permit this morning. Not something the hub or I are particularly looking forward to, but everyone grows up eventually!

    Nighttime is the hardest because it's when you slam up against the wall of no-more-eating, and that is very painful and lonely! Makes me want to rebel, but that just means I need to change my mindset. I've wasted so much time on nighttime eating! I guess every once in a while, on a special occasion when everybody's home and there's, say, a special dessert to be shared, it's fine to eat after dinner, but the kind of eating I mindlessly do much too often--well, that's just gotta stop!

    Oh dear--children driving is not good for us compulsive worry warts. Good luck with that, Bemused! Your daughter will be fine. It's you and I who suffer with all the scenarios we create while waiting at home. (At least you have learner's permits in the US, where you can accompany her for a year. And that brings back the memory of my mother sitting in the passenger seat, gasping and applying imaginary brakes--not at all helpful or reassuring.)

    I loved it when my kids started driving. It gives them the independence that they need for growth. I also trusted them to pieces!

    Night time snacking (after dinner) is still kicking my butt also. Thank goodness for new days. It appears I have to go back to tracking my food and get myself in gear!

    I had to FORCE my daughter to learn to drive. She was 20 years old, with a baby, and I was still driving them everywhere. She got over it fast. Then I had the worry of her being a new driver and having my grandkids in the car. The worry just changes as they get older, doesn't it?

    Driving, wow! I'd be freaked out too. She sounds like a smart cookie though! I'm sure she'll drive great.

    I can't think about that today, I will think about that tomorrow for tomorrow is a brand new day! ~ Katie Scarlet O'Hara
