Question of the Day #1,069

As you know by the last 100 or so Questions, I had a crazy Summer. I took seven trips, hosted six different guests, ate way too much late night mac and cheese and ice cream, had a few too many cocktails and got nowhere near enough sleep or exercise.

This week, I shifted gears. No more food at night. I halved my serving sizes, chucked the remaining ice cream and cookies, started my week with a two hour hike and have walked every day since. I've been in bed by 10:00 PM each night and already, I feel better.

Summer is over. It's time to focus on work and everything else in moderation.

Do ever you finding yourself shifting gears? If so, how?



  1. Ah, fall is a major shift--from barefoot to socks, from lax and lazing in the pool to running kids to school and activities. I'm getting some discipline, but not gracefully!

  2. Same here - the summer is a free for all and the fall makes us get ourselves back on track (or pay for our sins LOL).

    Having a baby has made me shift gears quite a bit. Instead of the swank dinner we were supposed to have tonight to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we will now be home with our tiny little baby and some takeout - and I wouldn't have it any other way. This shifting of gears is an awesome and welcome one. :-)

  3. Since I got a job since summer ended, I have definitely been "shifting gears". I have been working a lot more (working my old part time job plus new part time job) and I have another project on the way as well. I am trying to get more exercise (although that never seems to work). *sigh* I need to get some exercise machine or something.
