So yesterday I posted four goals for July, one of which was to get to bed at a decent hour so I would have an easier time exercising in the morning.
I planned ahead, had everything ready for dinner, had decided on post-work activities, basically everything I thought I needed to make sure my head hit the pillow at a decent hour... Then life got in the way.
My sister had a car accident last week. She's fine, but the car was totaled. She's been using a rental, and needed to return the rental and pick up her bright, shiny, new car. We had talked ahead of time, and she was going to take care of the rental return, and then when I got off work I was going to pick her up to get the new vehicle.
Right before I get off work, she texts... She slept all day and didn't get the rental returned... Could I do the rental car return, too? IN ANOTHER STATE?
So I did... close to two hours at the car dealership, then two hours round trip to the rental place in Colorado, then back to the office to finish off some things, and to bed later than I'd been hitting the sack before I set the early bedtime goal.
Thankfully, it's a long month...
As a closing aside, how about that Tim Howard?!!!

I know it's not REALLY starting over...
I've lost and kept off 100 pounds for more than six years now.
That's an accomplishment, and I don't want to spit on it.
But right now, my clothes are tight. My face is puffy. I've gained some weight back, and I've got to get back to basics.
What should be a little adjustment - eat more veggies, drink more water, take advantage of the warmer weather and walk every day, start lifting again... feels like an enormous defeat.
I've got to get my head on straight. One day and one bite at a time. One day and one step at a time.
The scale today was probably artificially high... lots of sodium yesterday and I'm really sensitive to that... but starting weight today is 206.2.
My mini goal is 198. Back to 100 pounds lost.
I plan to be seeing more of you guys (and less of me ).
