Yesterday improved after my post. I went grocery shopping, cooked pot roast (leaving a bunch of leftovers for lunches) and got a bunch of housework done.
This morning was bad. I had planned to leave early and take the long way to work. I would have looped around Cherokee Park, up and down the hills. I’m riding the ‘bent because my neck has been bothering me again.
I didn’t oversleep, I just didn’t get out of bed. I was awake, but unwilling to move. I tried to figure out how to stay home. I eventually got up, showered, shaved, and prepared to face the day.
I no longer had time to take the long way. I went directly to work. The cold weather was invigorating and I was quite awake when I arrived. I made it on time, which is sometimes an issue.
Once I had some coffee things improved greatly. I had a couple of quick things to fix, then moved on to a big project. I’ve been working on it (more like chipping away) for months. The perfect conditions of being productive, and not being interrupted occurred and I managed to make a large dent. I have tangible progress I can show. That’s a good feeling.
I’m not here to write about my work, but there’s a parallel to my personal life. I need to be productive in my personal life again. I feel like I’ve been spinning my wheels for a few years now. This includes fitness, weight loss, financial issues, housecleaning, simple-living, and many other things.
I need to keep the positive attitude going that sprung up today. So, off I go to do some stretching, exercises, cooking, and cleaning.
