Step 58 of the Journey: Noticing and correcting the slippage
The Year of Responsibility and Small Steps
Step 58. When you get into a routine, invariably there will be minor changes to it over time. These changes, if compounded, can have a negative effect. It’s good to take stock on a regular basis and review how things are going. I realised today that the routine has become almost too routine, and the disciplined sleep schedule has started to slip.
I woke up feeling tired this morning because bedtime for the last few nights has got later and later. It’s a feeling that was all too common for me before this year, and this morning I was reminded how lousy I used to feel every morning. Despite that, a productive day ensued, including quality family time, significant writing, the prelaunch of the new business and a great exercise routine.
It’s also my 5oth day without chocolate. I think that has happened only once before in my life. I’ll probably have a small piece after 60 days on an occasional basis (birthdays and some Sundays for example), but it’s great not feeling the urge to eat chocolate every time I’m having a challenging day.
So, without further ado I shall get back into a good sleep pattern and make the most of tomorrow.
Let’s continue to rebuild the momentum!
Day 50 of healthy eating done.
Day 58 job done.
