Sleepy state blame

Late night sleeping issues are funny. It's all those darn infomercials. I usually am able to recognize that they rope you in using psychology techniques, but I blame it on the sleepy state. I got to watching one exercise one, and thought "hey, that could answer all my questions and wishes." Totally excited. Ready to shell out money. Then the next one came on. You guessed it. So, even with my training and many (too many) posts on the topic, even though I know better...I still am looking for the quick fix. At least I realized what was going on before moola was involved!!

I'm trying something new. It's all nmb's (at embrasing the weight loss journey) fault :) I joined the normal eating site in order to try to get a grip on a healthier relationship with food. Food logs and eating healthier foods works for some people - not denying that it does. But, I seem to have deeper roots - lets work on pulling them up one at a time!

In the mean time, I am working out with some tae bo and some bike riding with the hubby. Still moving in the right direction, just slow and steady. Slow and sure.

Rule #1! Don't ever watch an infomercial when you may be tired, hungry, angry, just got out of a relationship, just started a relationship or any time that you're awake. There isn't one of them that doesn't pitch a point that you say "hum, that seems right" until you doll out the cash for it.

Roflmao I will NOT even tell you how much I have shelled out over the years on "this is the one" products. I could have probably taken a really nice cruise instead lol. Watching those things is like going grocery shopping hungry lol

Hope you have a great week!
