Ugh. I feel humbled and embarrassed for myself to be posting yesterday's food. See the grazing, right into Sugar-Land (no, not the country music group)? This is how it escalates into insanity and sleeplessness for me. After having white flour and sugar yesterday, I proceeded to stay up all night (went to bed at 5:00 am this morning) and woke up at 3:00 pm this afternoon. Of course, I ate horribly today because getting up that late makes me feel fuzzy in the head and I end up feeling rushed; taking care of myself properly is the first thing to go out the door. However, I said "no" to sugar that was offered to me tonight, and for that I am grateful and proud of myself. It's not easy to start my day over at any time, but sometimes all it takes to get back on track is a simple "no." Thank you, God, for giving me the grace to abstain today.

I've been (cautiously) reading a blog entitled "Ed Underwood: Radical Hope, Radical Chritianity." And I say "cautiously" because I don't yet know where he's coming from. But lately he's been talking about journaling as a spiritual discipline, and that's something I can get behind. And I like his phrasing of making an "appointment" with God. For me, when the sleep goes, quality wake time goes, the food goes, and my God time goes. So, actually, right now adhering to my sleep/wake schedule seems to be key.

Hope to see you tomorrow, sane and well-rested.
