Sleeping in a strange bed the first night makes for unsettling sleep and it doesn't help when you husband doesn't sleep well either.  In the book I'm reading .... "The Happiness Project",  one of January's goals is getting enough sleep ... which in turn gives you more energy.  A high level of energy would help keep your other resolution easier.  A fitfull night's sleep ... is that why I had 1200 calories for lunch?  I'm still working on where I need to be ... some days I've got it, some days I don't, but it doesn't mean I'm not getting there.

We checked out of the hotel around 9:00 and stopped at a McDonald's drive-thru.  I kinda gave up on my fruit parfait ... I don't know why because it's good and filling but over the holidays I got settled in some bad habits and I'm still putting off the time to turn things around ... and then lunch was "find something now" we can't eat too much later because dinner will probably be early.  I let Gary make the choice from the interstate markers, which was a bad choice, but the worse thing was I didn't check the calories until AFTER I ate.   Long John Silver's ... fried, fried, fried. 

I discovered something the other night when I was working on my class blog.  Blogger had changed their format and it was giving me fits trying to add pictures and getting the format where all my entries were on one page.  I finally had it and gave in to what was there, was what was going to be seen.  What I discovered is that I don't like change because it slows me down.  I had put something off long enough ... I hadn't updated our class blog for months and now that I finally decided to do it, they changed things on me.  I just wanted to get it done but with the changes it was going to take me longer than I had planned and I had all these other things to do.  Something wasn't going to happen the way that I had envisioned it ... and it frustrated me and I just finally gave in to mediocrity.  I need to change my holiday ways.   Change, I need to approach it differently.

I completely understand how difficult it is to deal with change and feel like you're not in control of the situation... I hope that you get a better night's sleep, also, because it is so important!
