A Little of This; A Little of That

Yesterday, I got in over !4,000 steps. Went out for my walk in the a.m. What's been REALLY stupendous is, normally I'd have to talk myself into going out. I'd have to deal with the monkey mind chatter telling me I can go later (knowing I WONT go if it's too hot); I have all the goodies to play with (kb's, clubs, balls, hoop, rebounder, etc) so, why go out and walk? It's whatever day and I'm too busy, too lazy, can sleep in, blah, blah, blah. I've had NONE of that! I get up; if it's REAL early, like 4:30 a.m., I'll get on the 'puter for 1/2 hour, take care of the mundane stuff, then, out the door. I'm actually having trouble staying in!
The other thing... He's worked 2 evening straight. My habit is, when he's gone, to overeat or eat stuff that's not beneficial to me ~ especially starches. Well yesterday I went shopping (be prepared) and got some fresh veggies for wraps.
After he left, I didn't even go in the freezer or the cupboards... I knew what was in there and my mind said, "that's not what I want" soooo, I didn't eat ANY of that. I made two wrap with romaine lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, lemon cukes... SO good, SO refreshing, SO light ~ and, no desire for anything more.
I've not been drinking much oj/water either. This morning I did juice up 4 quarts AFTER my walk (just under 5,000 steps) and AFTER watering the garden. Not had any yet although I did have a wrap for breakfast.
I've still got 4500+ steps to go today and, that'll happen. He's working again this evening so, we'll see what the day holds.
I've heard that tapping one time on something (One-Time Wonder) will stop it yet, I know that other things need more time. For me, procrastination is it. I'm currently getting more done with less effort yet, there are still some aspects to be addressed. It's cool though. All learning processes I can share with others.
Thanks for reading.
