My goodness has it been raining yesterday and today!
I'm actually enjoying it though. Rainy weather always puts me in a great mood for some reason. It also helps me sleep better, for the most part. Although, last night, my cats would not move for anything, and I ended up sleeping terribly. Oh well, I slept in a bit this morning, and felt really energetic, so I can't complain.
Since I am unemployed, (thank goodness for my husband's job), my day usually consists of hanging out on my computer, or doing things around the house like dishes, laundry, and all of the other cleaning, running errands, or reading. There were a few things I needed to do this morning, and even though I love it when it rains, it really gives me a great excuse not to get out. I had some movies to return to Redbox, so I decided to run to Target, too, because they have some of those Rubbermaid plastic storage totes on sale, and I needed one for the new Christmas decorations I bought this last year. Anyways, so, I just got up and out as quickly as I could before I could change my mind. I am so glad I did.
I actually got done and home in an hour. Which, living in Dallas, is a great accomplishment, especially after making three stops. It makes me feel like I have more momentum for the rest of the day. I think we've all been there when you sit around, feeling lazy, and you think to yourself, "I have't gotten up today, and it's already 7 PM...Why not just stay here and skip my workout?" But, we also have been on the other side of the spectrum which is, "I've gotten so much accomplished already. Let's keep going!" That latter expression is me today. I've got a few chores to do around the house such as the dishes, vacuuming, and filing up the fish tank with more water. Then, I am going to get a great workout in. I can feel it. I feel really energetic today, and not sluggish like I felt yesterday. Maybe I slept better than I thought I did. I have also eaten pretty well today, too.
I hope to keep up the momentum today and hopefully accomplish more than I have set myself up to do. I really love being productive and saying to myself later, "WOW. You got a lot done today!" I hope this inspires anyone who is feeling lazy and like they just want to do nothing, but know they should. We've all been there. Sometimes we need a little extra energy or encouragement to get through the day, and since I have a little extra energy, I'm using it to encourage you.
