Things I'm discovering

I'm doing pretty good, but the things that I'm discovering that are a stretch for me are getting in an extra two cups of water each day than I was used to, reading up to 20 minutes, watching the overeating, and not eating after 8pm. I do good to get 6 cups of water in a day, but getting that afternoon (between lunch and dinner) water in is sometimes hard. I read my scriptures, but I realize now that I must have only been doing 5-10 minutes a day. The full 20 seems long. I could eat more because it tastes good so getting myself to know that I don't need more takes concentration. And last, we've been eating earlier so Cory, my youngest has something in his tummy before football practice at 6pm each night. The other night when I was picking him up after practice, I was starting to get that rumble in my tummy. I was hoping we could get home before 8pm so I could munch on some cereal or something but we walked in the door a few minutes after I suffered! I do feel better this week and am sleeping better. So far, I haven't had any sweets and haven't killed anyone yet!


  1. Probably helps that your Mom is in town so you have to stay nice. :)

  2. It is a LONG twenty minutes. I never noticed that either!!
