I know I have tons of work to do but today after my workout, I grabbed my hot yogourt bowl of berries and parked it on the couch for a little "me time". Ok well I did fold a basket of laundry (but only 1). Laws of physics right, what goes up must come down. Me included, I get tons of stuff done all day everyday, that eventually I just can't do anything anymore. So here's the thing, this is a different kind of "me time". I am not being productive, I catch up on some pvr tv and that's about it. You might think that going to the gym 4 times a week is "me time", but in my mind going to the gym doesn't actually count. Do you consider brushing your teeth "me time"?, of course not... because it's something non-negotiable that has to get done. That's how I feel about exercise. Sure I push the envelope, but even if I don't really want to leave the house, I go. I get my butt to the gym, and even if at first my head isn't into the game, I fake it till I make it.
Well I did waste an enjoyable hour and half. Now I need to whip up a batch of something to bring to my parenting group tomorrow. I know I don't have too, but I am totally a creature of routine and habit. It funny but now that I think about it, baking for Thursday morning is kind of a weekly marker. I've been really strict with my food mon-wed and now thurs I can lighten it up a bit and have some baked goodies (well mine at least). Wow that makes me sound like a snob, but the thing is, I know exactly how much sugar, oil and other ingredients went into my baked goods so I don't have to guess and then wonder how I'm going to feel. I believe that since I have seriously cut back on crap food, I have adopted a new sensitivity to how different foods make me feel. And yes Jen... I think I will cut back on coffee, I'm pretty sure that's what was upsetting my stomach today! darn.... I really do have a love affair going on with my java.
