Sweet Dreams are Made of These... This? What the heck are you singing Annie?

These or this - what say you?  Don't know what I'm talking about?  I'll tell you in a minute.

So the other night I had a dream.

What?  Did you just groan?  Yeah, I know how annoying it is to sit through a monologue of someone telling you how, during their quest for a full eight hours of ZZZZZs, they were throwing cheese at a clown named Slappy who kept yelling "She's the one who caused Global Warming!"

Just suffer a moment, will you?

I dreamed that I came across tables and tables of awesome vintage junk that had been cleaned out of an old house.  I wasn't sure if the things were set up for a yard sale (duh) or if they were going to be hauled off.  I went home and began changing into black clothes.  I was going to go back and take the fabulous green depression glass pitcher that I saw, just in case it was going to be thrown away.

In other words, I was wearing my 'robber' clothes and acting shifty.

Then I woke up having to pee (ah this post is just FULL of stuff you could care less about knowing) so I stumbled my way to the bathroom.

Now what's weird is when I fell back asleep, my mind resumed the dream, only this time, I was actually at the sale looking for the green depression glass items that I wanted.  When I found them, they were way overpriced and I couldn't afford the cost.

The End.

Not quite.

I analyzed the dream myself and it's obvious what it is about (besides the fact that I have an inner delinquent).  I am a private eater.  I like nothing more than to stay up and nosh at night after my family has gone to bed.  If anyone gets up and finds me snacking, I get really annoyed.  Sneaky eating has always been a problem for me from way back in my childhood.  When I fell asleep again only to realize I couldn't buy what I had initially had my eye on showed me that I can't afford to be covetous of food anymore.  My sneaky nocturnal behavior is just as wrong as stealing a piece of depression glass in the cover of night.

So yeah, it sounds like I am working 24/7 toward making positive changes in my life.

 Now... these or this?  You be the judge.

I love that song. Thanks for checking in on me. I appreciate it. It's been a tough week (fighting the urge to eat) but I stayed on my plan through it all, so I'm pretty proud of that.

Anyway, I am a notorious sneak eater. You'd think I should weigh 120 lbs. judging by what I used to eat in plain view. I had to stop the night time eating. That was the toughest part. By the way, when I started to make these big changes I had freakin crazy dreams for the first month...we're talking swirling snicker bars. :)

I love that song too. And thanks for your support for my coming week! And yes, I struggle with evening eating urges. I get up so dang early (4:30 am) that I'm usually asleep and so avoid midnight refrigerator raids, but I do struggle with after dinner eating and wanting something sweet before I go to bed. It is relatively easy for me during the day -- it's the 7:30pm to 9:00pm timeframe that gives me trouble. Also, if I don't eat quite enough at lunch, I will be starving when I get home and that makes it harder to make smart choices.

I have those dreams where I wake up and go right back to dreaming where I left off. I hate it because it's usually something I woke myself up over in the first place. So you're singing "Lolly" and now I'm singing "Sweet Dreams".

Hope all is well, and that you are staying strong. :)
