First workout on the new calendar, check, & stopping the Halloween insanity

As I mentioned in the last post, I began to use a written calendar again, starting today.  In periods of mental/physical scatteredness (not sure if that's a word), I sometimes need external factors to reign me in.  Hence, the calendar.  I just took a nice 45 minute walk, around 3 miles, and the first written activity is done.  It's funny how easily one can feel a sense of accomplishment.  Maybe it's just me, but knowing I am off to the right start feels good.

I have recently been dealing with a war on Halloween candy and I guess you can look at it as me winning or losing, depending on how you see it.  The reality is, I have been devouring it at night and washing it down with diet soda, sometimes chasing it with pretzels.  It's to be expected in y world coming off the marathon.  This is one of those cycles I tend to get into.  The good news is that I have realized it quickly and can stop the downward spiral.  I am working on how to share the calendar moving forward.  Monthly, before the week starts, post week or workout, I'm undecided.  I will get back to you.
