Lately, I’ve been feeling rather unmotivated.
I’m coming off of a couple intense months at work, and though I have lots still to do, none of it is critical, deadline-driven work. Which means that for the past two weeks, I’ve been playing it pretty fast and loose. Getting to work late. Leaving on time. Not accomplishing much in the time I’m there. Obviously a mental break I needed, but it’s annoying to know you’re not accomplishing anything…and yet do nothing to correct the situation.
In addition, when I get home, I’ve just been foraging for whatever junk is in the fridge and laying on the couch. I think my body is craving rest, but I also recognize that my gym schedule has all but gone down the toilet and my sleep schedule seems off. Like, up ’til 2 a.m. on a Tuesday, off.
I’ve been thinking I’d like to channel Nilsa and set up some personal improvement challenges for myself. I was reminded of it again today when SLynnRo wrote about NoImYoSeMo. Instead of NaNoWriMo (Nat’l Novel Writing Month for you non-writers out there), she does November Improve Yourself Month.
But the thing is, there are glimpses of activity. Like tonight. There was a hearty cardio workout followed by a quiet, homemade, healthy meal. If only I could do that 4 out of the 7 days of the week, I’d be a happy girl.
P.S. — Thanks all for the kind words about the whole mother/daughter drama that I wrote about earlier this week. We spoke and seem to have ironed things out. It was really less of an issue of the argument itself, and more an issue of her being hurt and me not recognizing that detail. And like I said, the situation did give me a chance to reflect on my relationship with my parents, and it’s something I’m committed to improving. Maybe that should get added to my challenge list?!
