Lately I’ve been trying to work on my exercising and practicing and hand therapy. This isn’t going so well. Things keep interfering; I have a bad night’s sleep or get to bed really late, and so I wake up late and rush out the door. Or I have too much to do in the day. Like last week when I was putting in 12-hour days several days in a row.
All this and I’m supposed to be flossing my teeth every day, too.
And I’d sure like to 1) keep the kitchen cleaner, 2) make and adhere to menus for the week, 3) get back to some of my shoulder and knee therapy, 4) get back to drawing cartoons, 5) oh whatever…
I know people who actually get stuff done like this every single day. Why is it so hard for me?
I’m taking a good hard look at my daily activity, trying to see where everything fits in. One place I really fall down, besides getting up too late, is when I get home in the evening all tired out from my commute. I sit down at the computer with a glass of wine and putter around on Facebook, or I sit down with the ScottieDog and watch political shows on TV. Or both. I think it’s called vegging out. (Vedging out?)
Obviously I’m not going to reach my goal of daily discipline if I fold up every night when I get home. I’m hoping that if I do get my exercise in regularly (I was doing really well at this in December), I’ll feel lots better and have more energy and can use some of my evening time for projects.
Does anybody else have this problem? How do you plow through all the things people are supposed to do every single day? Like make up your bed?
At least I’ve been really good about getting my makeup on before I leave the house. (Goal 80)
This week I’m going for the discipline thing again: I’m going to get to bed early and get up with ScottieDog so I’ll have time to exercise AND practice—haven’t gotten to do both in the morning yet. Who has an extra two hours in the morning? Consider Obama. He gets up at the crank of dawn and goes to the gym and then does president stuff all day. But he doesn’t have to practice. I wonder how well he would do if he had to put in at least an hour of vocalizing to boot.
So we’ll see how this goes…
