Today I am going to give in. I spend countless nights (every night) blogging until the wee hours of the morn. I rarely go to bed before 2:00am for one reason or another - all having to do with the blog. But today I am going to sleep. For most individuals 12:32 am is an unreasonable time to retire but for me this makes me downright giddy.
Armed with knowledge of self I can't pretend that I won't spend some time reading the book that I have yet to finish. And it is highly likely that when I look up from the pages it will be 2:00am. As I write this I am trying to convince myself not to check twitter one last time. Not to reach for the book sitting next to me on the bed calling out to be read. Not to channel surf and play catch up on all of the "good" television programming that I have been missing.
But I know how this story ends. I will check twitter and then close the Macbook. I will pick up my book and fall asleep reading.
And this my friends is taking care of me. One step at a time. I recognize that this is a process. I will not even begin to discuss my eating habits as of late. When my husband commented on it this morning I realized that I am going down a slippery slope. On a brighter note - I checked the gym schedule. But going to sleep at 2:00 will not work if I want to be at the gym by 5am. I will start by getting in some much needed sleep.
Today I vow to take better care of me. Wish me luck!
