Danger, Danger…

11 Mar

I’m TIRED today.  I blame it on daylight savings time.  Last night, I read until nearly midnight, then turned off the light and was wide awake!  Is it because it was REALLY 11:00?  Who knows…

What I DO know, is that when I’m feeling tired, I want to EAT…must be very careful on days like this.  The desire to sit down with a large bag of ruffles and a pint of sour cream watching back-to-back reruns of The Big Bang Theory is high.

I started off the day with a hearty breakfast of two (I usually only have one) runny eggs on a piece of rye and half an apple.  Wasn’t sure how satisfied I’d feel, but I am feeling good on that front.

It’s 10:30 Zumba morning, and my bed is crying out, “come back, come back!”  So far, I’m resisting the urge.  Only 20 more minutes before I walk out the door, and I know I can do it.  This class is my favorite of the week because we have a great teacher, I know most of the songs/steps, AND I’ve made a few friends.  It makes it easier to ‘show up’ when you know you’ll see friendly faces.  Plus, someone might be asking themselves where I am.

I actually started off my work morning with one of my least desirable projects so that I can feel a sense of accomplishment when it is finished.  I think it will only require another hour’s worth of time to be completed!  I remember reading somewhere years ago that one tool in effectively getting unpleasant tasks finished is to just tackle them first.  Feeling good about THAT, too…

So, I just need to get through lunch and the afternoon, which is my most vulnerable time of day.  I’ve got my lunch planned, and I have a few ideas for an afternoon snack that are healthy.  If I get really desperate, I’m thinking I could take a little walk (which Tux would love), or head to the coffee shop for a latte and a little time out of the house.

This is the plan for my sleepy Monday.  I guess a power nap should also be on the list of ideas…it’s a better choice than orange-stained fingers…

    So you’re Zumba-ing as I write this, so good for you! No doubt you’ll keep that good feeling going. As Mary Poppins would say, a job once begun is a job half done–which is why I’ve got the bed made and the grocery shopping done, and you’re just an hour away from getting that project off your desk. Aaah.
