OK, so this is probably some sort of cheating, but as soon as I hit "post" on my latest blog entry, I thought that this should really have gone to the Stressed Out Women-team. So I'm doing a bit of duplicate posting and crossing my fingers that noone will be too upset... :)
I sleep 8 hours per night, cause that's what SP tells me to do.
I work 8 hours per day, cause that's what my employer tells me to do. It takes me about 1 hour each day to go to and from work. And the law says I have to break for lunch for at least 30 minutes.
Each morning I take a shower. Not cause someone tells me to, but out of concern for my fellow men and women. Add getting dressed and having breakfast to that, and you're up to an hour.
Working out at the gym adds another hour, and getting to and from the gym + showering (I work out during lunch hour - see previous comment about fellow men and women) another 30 minutes.
Cooking, having dinner with the family, cleaning up after dinner = 1.5 hours.
SP fast goal is taking a walk each day. Maybe I don't really need to do it if I'm working out during lunch hour, but as I normally take at least one family member with me, I want to do it anyway. That's another 30 minutes.
I know from experience that if I'm going to make this life style change that I've embarced upon (ie SP), I'll need to commit properly. Make that another 30 minutes (which is not true, cause it's more like 1 hour).
During the evenings, I like to endulge in a bit of TV-watching. Most good shows last an hour (except for So you think you can dance, which will steal almost 2 hours out of my schedule).
Have you been counting? If not, I can tell you that we're up to 23.5 hours. That leaves 30 minutes to do laundry, clean the house, spend time with my kids and husband, read books, call or skype friends and family, mow the lawn, and pay my bills. Not to mention renovate house and garden, hopefully before the kids grow old and move away from home...
How is this supposed to be done? How do you do it?
