    About the above.

    I am in the process of evaluating my systems for everything from eating to house keeping. I am looking to see if a system is flawed or it is a case of flawed execution. In some cases, I have no system and need to create one. Dean keeps saying that the system must be simple and easy to implement and stick with it. I agree wholeheartedly.

    Right now I am having a very hard time with food. Much of the problem is that I am on summer break and am unscheduled. I am not eating enough, not drinking enough water, not sleeping enough and not working my anti binge strategies. So this is a classic execution failure. I have the plan, I need to work it. I also need to come up with a system for accomplishing projects this summer. Time just seems to get away from me otherwise.

    oh my gosh, why does time off move faster than work time???? I had a 5 day weekend this past week and got only half of what I wanted to accomplish done. Some of it because of the rain (so not able to do all the outside stuff) and some because I forgot I wanted to do it (age is killing my memory) and some just because time got away from me.

    I need a system, but I hate developing them.

    BIW Module 2 Lesson 1 Pinpoint The Problem

    What is the problem you are trying to change? Ie. Binging, stuff clutter, paperwork clutter,
    These are actually symptoms of the real problem.

    How to Pinpoint the real problem?
    Ask Yourself...
    What is going on here that I am not seeing? When I binge, I am usually hungry, overwhelmed and/or tired.
    (New acronym H.O.T.)
    What has to be done to stop the bleeding? First, go to bed earlier. Use emergency binge plan that is already in place. (Decide what to do when a binge comes on before it happens.)

    BIW Module 2 Lesson 2 Decide in Advance

    Determine the Outcome
    -Gain Clarity on Fuzzy Outcomes ie. I want to binge less, I want to be more organized with paperwork.

    -Dig Deep and be specific In order to avoid a binge, I need to get enough sleep. (As Chris says, sleep is the single most important factor in weight loss.) What does getting more sleep look like?
    *9-9:30 Turn off electronics, Take meds and sleep supps, finish dishes, prep clothes etc.for AM
    *9:30 Get in bed with a book or journal
    *10 pm lights out.

    -Create indicators. How do you know that you are successful?
    *Go Wear Fit Tells me I am sleeping 7+ hours
    *I have 3 or fewer binges / month
    *I no longer need to nap in the afternoon.

    Yeah, I'm way too uncoordinated for Zumba. I tried it at home a few times. I need to spend more time on the slower stuff. Hulky can't stand teaching me to dance because he doesn't understand how I can't pick it up after doing something twice.

    I like your bedtime plan. I used a similar schedule early last year when I was working on getting myself in and out of bed at reasonable times. I usually didn't go to bed until 10:30, but now I'll fluctuate between 10 and 10:30 and that works fine. It took a couple of months to really ingrain the plan.

    I like the idea of KNOWING what your action would look like. Kind of like teaching a child what you mean by 'a clean room'. You can't assume they now what your standard is. Or even that there IS a standard. Maybe our brains are the same way.
