I think a lot of people go through phases where motivation leaves them. That is what I am dealing with today. Yesterday I woke up early, went for a 3 mile run before I babysat for the rest of the morning and afternoon. After getting home from babysitting a little after 4pm I took a short nap which was much needed (I sort of find 8 months old exhausting!). Mom and I went to the movies last night – The Help was great, but you should read the book before seeing the movie if you have not already done so – and we both had a small hamburger from Five Guys before the movie. (Yum)
This morning I set my alarm for 7am. I woke up, looked outside and saw that it was raining. I did not even think about my scheduled run and simply went back to bed. I fell asleep immediately and slept until 9 o’clock. I definitely needed to catch up on some sleep, and I think my body is thankful that I decided to sleep rather than run in the rain this morning.
Now it is 11:49 AM and I am still sitting on the couch. Today I have read some of the paper, read the Huffington Post, watched Meet the Press, made weekend plans (for next weekend) and searched Stub Hub for tickets to the September 1st game between the Patriots and the Giants. What I need to do is laundry, eat breakfast, go running, get my car washed (it is covered in bird poo) and get to the market.
Instead I am drinking a third cup of coffee and thinking about possibly eating breakfast at noon. This is not going to be a day productive day.
