I have been out of school for 2 weeks. I am having trouble slowing down. I have gone back to Weight Watchers to take care of the 15 lb I gained during grad school in the last year and a half. I am a repeat offender and have gone back several times. I usually am mad at myself or feel guilty for some dumb reason. I told them this time I didn't feel bad because I know it is a change in life style. I am doing a lot more sitting and a lot more drive through. They gave us a calendar for August with thoughts for each day. I posted it on the fridge. As I'm standing in front of the fridge eating my lunch I read. "Do not stand while eating. Sit down and enjoy your food" Ooooops. I have been working on this sense and discovered it is a big problem for me. I cannot sit down unless I am doing something else like the computer. Guess I wound up a little tight over the last year and a half!! This is my goal for the coming week, to sit down when I eat. Ugh. In that 2 weeks of "vacation" I have scraped off all the wallpaper in the kitchen and am reading my second book. I'm thinking slowing down may be good for the mental health! Ya think.
