1. not flowing or running, as water, air, etc.
2. stale or foul from standing, as a pool of water.
3. characterized by lack of development, advancement, or progressive movement: a stagnant economy.
4. inactive, sluggish, or dull.
# 3 and #4: That is describing me these past weeks. I am having lots of moments where I do not want to do much of anything. I have been spending a lot of time in front of the computer because I am trying to create a budget spreadsheet in Excel. It is so depressing. Also, it is frustrating because as soon as I figure out the numbers an unexpected expense occurs and then I need to rework the numbers to fit that in. UGH!
Then my daughter gets scheduled for a 50+ hour work week, which means I have my active 3 year-old grandson for about 65. As much as a joy he is, I need a break. I have found out that little fellow can easily outrun me. Man, I need to add some speed work outs to my routine!
My daughters, granddaughter and I are doing a step challenge and I come in last every week. My granddaughter cheats though and is caught shaking her pedometer ~ hee hee, I see her running around the yard and then checking her pedometer; at least she is being active. We all pitch in a dollar a week and winner gets the $$. I, on the other hand, am amazed at how hard it is to reach 10,000 steps on a daily basis.
I found myself eating a lot of junk food this past week and I need to refocus and get back to eating healthy again. Today is a new day with new possibilities for success.
