Being Brutally Honest with Myself

Sunday, August 18, 2013

So, today I was essentially a slug. I woke up around 9:30 this morning and went to the bathroom. I had every intention of continuing throughout my day. But then I saw my hubbs still asleep in bed and the bed just seemed so inviting. So I crawled back in there, grabbed the book on my nightstand and read for the next hour. I finally got up and went to the kitchen and cooked pancakes for breakfast. (I know that's not the healthiest breakfast, but it's a fun Saturday tradition for us.)

After breakfast, I spent some time playing games on the iPad. Then I went about folding some laundry that I let sit in the dryer overnight. (That's the only thing that got accomplished today.) Next I decided to go ahead and wash my face and get dressed. By this time it was after 1:00pm.

After that, I knew I had a big to-do list for today, but I wasn't feeling very motivated to try and tackle it. So instead, I sat in front of the computer and looked at pinterest... ALL. AFTERNOON. I only got up once to go to the bathroom and once to get more water.

So what did I accomplish today? Well, I finished folding the laundry from yesterday. And I ate breakfast. Now I know that I've been really exhausted all week. And who wouldn't be when you teach 7 hours of Pilates classes and 8 hours of dance classes in a week, yielding a calorie burn of 3700+ calories from work alone? But still, I feel like the least I can do when I'm not teaching is keep the house and my car clean. I don't really feel like I've been accomplishing this lately. I'm hoping this laziness/exhaustion thing wears off soon because I feel completely useless. The worst part is that what I do while procrastinating isn't even what I WANT to be doing anyway. I put my favorite hobbies off as a reward for completing my to-do list for the day. Yeah, those hobbies were not done today.

I'd say tomorrow's another day, but the day is scheduled pretty full with church stuff. Maybe I'm suffering from burnout.

    I think you just needed a down day. As long as you get back up and get going today/tomorrow - no biggie!

    I agree sometimes we just need to unplug.

    Maybe you just needed to rest.
