|My precious. My sweet, delicious, probably clogging my|
arteries as we speak precious.
The past few weeks have been super busy at work, and I am also trying to sneak in some time editing book number one, which I'm still hoping to publish later this year. As a result, I'm tired. So tired that even the thought of sitting down to read a book or jot down a blog post exhausts me. The only reason I finally got around to it, today, is because I've bribed myself with the prospect of a cinnamon crunch scone if I was productive. (Seriously, Panera, if you had to come up with something this delicious and addictive, couldn't you have made it with fewer calories?)
Like I said, I'm tired. And crabby. Probably because I'm tired and I have a lot to do. I find myself tired from the moment I wake up until I go to bed. And aside from getting through a couple of seasons of "Mad Men" on Netflix and removing most instances of the phrase "did not" or "didn't" in my book (there were entirely too many -- I had no idea I overused those), I don't have a lot to show for the month.
That led me to wonder, what do other people do to get more energy and stay motivated? I often hear people preach the value of eating healthy and exercising, and I can agree it helps. But at the same time, the lack of energy makes it nearly impossible for me to put on my tennis shoes let alone get to the gym. And eating healthier would mean a trip to the grocery store followed by cooking rather than stopping by for a quick sandwich or snack at a restaurant.
Do I just have to get over these aversions? Probably. But at the same time, maybe I need to cut myself some slack and take a nap. And maybe I should slow down on the cinnamon scones.
