Week 3 - Day 2 - Deadlines & Balance
Tuesday, November 05, 2013
Yesterday was deadline day for the magazine I work with, 16 hours of computer time, having meals and snack in front of the screen while working. I ate within my ranges, but didn't get even my 10 minutes of exercise. My butt is sore today from sitting.
For a lot of years days like yesterday were just my typical day. Me and my computer working constantly. But in recent times I've made a conscious effort to work less and find more balance in my life. Even still, there are usually one or two days a month around deadline time when I can't do anything else, just work. I still haven't found the ability to balance everything all the time, but I keep working on it.
On the up side I was so tired at the end last night that I fell right to sleep and slept a solid 7 hours.
Today I'm taking a class at the Community Kitchen. I've signed up for a 5-6 week program. I'm not sure what to expect from today's class but I'm excited to get out of the house and off my butt standing in a kitchen hopefully learning some new cooking techniques. Plus I get to bring some of whatever we've made home afterwards. It's supposed to be all healthy stuff. We're supposed to have a better understanding of how to eat healthy on a tight budget when we're done.
If nothing else, it should be fun! And totally outside my normal comfort zone, so I'm sure I'll grow in some way by doing it.
