I'm letting myself down at the moment. I feel generally fatigued, you know like a day in bed would do me the world of good, but I'm not ill or unwell, just tired.
Lots of stress in life at the moment.
I do have a day off booked for Friday, I had planned a lameness work up for Steele, but I'm going to need to ring today and cancel that as I can't guarantee getting to the funeral on time if I take him for it, so need to find another date for that. Funeral is at 12 Friday. After the wake, we will pick Ted up from nursery (and the dog from home) and head up the motorway to mum's. We will drop child et al off at mum's, I'll walk the dog then we are spending the night at a nice hotel just down the road from mum and eating in a local pub. I'm looking forward to a lie in the next morning, just have to get horse cover booked. Staying Saturday night at mum's with child and dog too of course. Have a birthday party on Sat lunchtime with some friends for their one year old (guess I'm gonig to have to make a trip to toys r us this week. possibly Friday morning before the funeral - oh joy.
Have booked Ted's party at bowling for the 6th August and posted the invites.
It's all go and I'm waffling.
So the exercise... I didn't go to the gym yesterday yet again and other than a quick dog walk no exercise (4800 steps only all day). I hadn't realised how very sedentary I was I guess. I have to pick up the car from the next village (it's in the garage) so in my head I have that I'll walk the dog down there regardless of the weather to collect the car and pay the bill. I'm carless today so I can't get to the gym (7 miles away) at the moment. My horses are being ridden by someone else so I won't ride today - I feel like the excuses mill is running overtime here...
So I'm going to stop thinking I'm going to have an early early night and I'm going to take a break from work at lunchtime and have a 15 minute power nap to sort me out (it is only 10am after all - must stop obsessing about when I next get to go to sleep) - and this evening I'm either going to do 20 mins Zumba on the Wii (if I can find the new game) - or get the EA active sports thing set up my husband gave me.
I will do 30 mins exercise today! I will get my steps to 10000. I will. I have the will and the inclination and I'll find the energy from somewhere.
Please please can they approve the mortgage today!
