Lately I have been feeling like I’m not focusing enough on getting things done, and most of the time I feel like I need to do something to make a change… but not always.
For instance, I know that I’m overweight and lazy, but I’m thinking “hey, maybe I’ll try taking up running next week! Yeah! I’ll get up early and just spend like 20 minutes going on a run! Everyday!” but then again, I’m a night person, I never want to be awake before 10 in the morning, and I can’t run for more than like 45 seconds at a time without panting and being completely out of breath and feeling like I’m going to die. So.. yes, running might very well be a good thing for me to work up to doing, but it’s going to take a lot of time to build up to be anywhere near good at it. And it’s summer, so you know.. it’s too hot outside to even think about running. Or something.
I try to be better at blogging, at taking pictures, and it’s just these nice thoughts that cross my mind of how I should be able to do all these things, but that never really seems to happen in the real world. I’m lucky to be up by 9am, it’s rare, and usually I’m a zombie for at least 2 hours before I even think about getting properly dressed, I get my son something to eat for breakfast in that time, and then I’ll try to lay on the couch for a while and catch a little more sleep.
Usually I don’t even think about getting on the computer until after lunch, so you know.. there goes a lot of productive hours where I could have been taking pictures and planning blog posts, or playing with my kid. Right. After lunch then it’s time to go and do something fun with my son, preferably outside if it’s not super hot, and then we are usually occupied until dinner time. Blah, blah, blah. Long story short, I need to make myself go to sleep as soon as my son does every night, so that I can be awake and fully functioning in the early morning hours and therefore be using that time to get a million things accomplished.
Also, I’m overweight and I’d like to start doing something to change that; such as exercising, perhaps even running.
