I didn't accomplish much past my morning routine on Sunday. After church, my family and I ran a few errands, then came straight home. I had just enough energy to help put groceries away and make one phone call. After that, I past out for the night. I couldn't believe how tired I was. You would have thought I had been chopping lumber all day, as exhausted as I was. When I laid down for, what I thought was a nap, it was day light. When I woke again, it was 5 am.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~If I can't do it perfectly, I'll do it anyway. If I can't do it all, I'll do some. If I do nothing, nothing gets done."I don't feel like it" is a poor sacrifice for your dreams.
I need to get up at 6am tomorrow so I was hoping to go to bed at 10pm. Too late for that now, but worse, I'm not at all tired. :-?
On the plus side, I'm ready for bed. I'll read for a while.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.
I want to get ready for bed early because I have to get up very early tomorrow to go out of town for an interview. I have an early train that I can't miss. So I'm starting my bedtime routine now.
...taking the hated pills. I haven't taken any pills at all yet today. I have to take at least one dose (of the three I should have taken). But I don't want to swallow them so I'm running around in circles doing everything but.
I shall take my pills now!!!!

Never mistake motion for action – Ernest Hemingway
I lounged around until early afternoon, then went out and did some errands. I back now, ready for an evening of lounging around.
I've been taking it easy because I haven't been feeling well and I have an important interview out of town on Monday. I can't be sick!! After Monday I'll go back to "getting things done".
Incidently, there has been no heat in my apartment all day, and it's cold outside - in the 20's. When the temperature in my apartment dropped into the 50's, I reluctantly turned on the space heater (costs a fortune to run). I've called the super twice and the landlord once. Others in the building are calling, too. I'm very upset about this. I'm thinking of going to a meeting at 7pm mainly to be in a warm place for a little while.
...heat has been restored in the building. I thought I was going to freeze to death today.
Nice additions to the site, Pro!
Haven't been here in a while, I've been too depressed & not accomplishing to even post.
Gratefully, I did my long workout today. I don't know what it is, but when I don't work out it tends to ruin my whole day or is that not doing what I say I'm going to do is so depressing. Maybe both? When I workout, it makes me feel so hopeful, probably also because of the good feelings you get from working out??
Anyway, I really need help through this site and you guys. Like Amanda said, it seems to be easier (most of the time) to get things done when you have help. I am a 12 stepper, have trouble asking for help, but I do. If you can relate to things I share or have suggestions/ideas, I'd be happy to hear from you.
Here goes what I hope to accomplish for the rest of Sunday and tomorrow:
Sunday TO DO: Dust apartment Clean kitchen Send out more resumes. Possibly type up press release for work Possibly send out press release to papers Possibly call cousins to set up time to see them. Play with "munchkin" our dog all day. Watch football with hubby. Brush teeth before bed.Monday morning TO DO: Get up at 7:00 AM Do laundry. Do 1/2 hour workout tape. Hopefully get to work by 9:00 AM
Love these playing with these graphics.Thanks, Bud♥
Hi All, Wanted to check in with things I've done so far, because I'm feeling so good, after feeling very depressed recently.
As I was cleaning, I thought what a gift it would be for me if I could keep up with cleaning on a day-to-day, week-to-week basis, which I haven't been able to do for years. Then we can actually have people over for dinner, etc.!! For me, It's usually cleaning all day once a month. I think where I get into trouble is when things start flowing and getting good, I get cocky, like I've got this down now, I don't need anybody or anything. I'm also a big perfectionist, so when I start to get into the workouts, I start to demand from myself and I start hurting myself when I work out.I guess I'm afraid of getting voted off this island, because I need the sun and shade that it provides, if you get my drift. Sunday TO DO: Dust apartment Clean kitchen (just top of range and dishes so far) Send out more resumes. Possibly type up press release for work Possibly send out press release to papers Possibly call cousins to set up time to see them. Play with "munchkin" our dog all day. Watch football with hubby. (Can't watch the Colts lose, after watching the Saints lose. Brush teeth before bed.
I can certainly identify. Exercise makes us feel better--it's a proven fact--even walking can pick up one's spirits. I'm a 12 stepper too, and I think we all have this innate ability to BS ourselves. You have my permission to "call" me whenever you see me BS'ing on my posts, and I'll do the same for you if you wish. As far as procrastination goes, I've noticed the biggest hurdle for me is getting moving. If I set the goal to do something for five minutes, I usually go beyond that, sometimes finishiing it. Take care and keep posting.
Thanks for responding.
O.k. now I'm paranoid, what BS do you see in my post? Honestly, I'm a sensitive gal. G-d, do I wish I wasn't. I think I can handle you calling me on things as long as it wasn't "mean-spirited." I don't do well with mean. I'm also willing to call you on things that I see too. I guess as I get to know you and visa versa.
I've noticed that 12 Steppers can be pretty good at Bs'ing themselves. Sometimes only a Bs'er can detect it, too. When I posted three days about emptying the cat box some time back, someone suggested to me something was startin' to smell, and it wasn't only the box, I think we all need nudged at times, and while I don't like the "feeling", the after-effects are great. Seems like we're able to do things here that we can't independently. Hope I didn't come off as harsh. I just needed a kick in the butt tonight, and couldn't quite reach it. Be well my friend.
Please don't assume someone is BS'ing, or accuse them of it. I know you didn't mean any harm, but people can take offense at that.
Didn't mean anything bad.
I'm glad you like the rich-text control. Some people's first reaction wasn't positive. I like it a lot, myself. I liked your colorful message, too.
For a while I was going to the gym every morning, and it felt good. Now I can't imagine where I found the self-discipline to do that. :-?
Thanks for your reply.
If you worked out every morning before, you can do it again. If I didn't believe that for myself (I used to work out consistently for years) I wouldn't be here. Maybe the goal should be baby steps, like 5 minutes in the a.m. and instead of poo-pooing it, really being happy for it?
As a matter of fact, I will be your work-out buddy if you like, and maybe we can help each other?
You're right - I should start slow - 5 minutes in the morning. I have an exercise ball and several collections of ball exercises. I could do this.
I tend to be very all-or-nothing about things. Either it's an exhaustive 2 hour work-out, or I do nothing. Bad attitude.
I'm going out of town tomorrow so I won't try to start then, but I'll start the day after. Yes, we should encourage each other! A little nudge sure would help me.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.
I've been dozing most of the morning. I'm not pushing myself today. I have to go out of town for an interview tomorrow, and I haven't been feeling well. My ear still hurts. I put drops in it and put cotton in the ear canal and that causes fewer pain spasms.
Edge - great "good morning" graphic in the day starter!! :)
Lol, thanks Pro, but the credit for that one should go to you - it's one of the forum's collection :-p ;-)
How are you feeling now? Ear any better?
Oh really? I forgot that one! LOL :-D I have the world's worst memory!!
I'm feeling better, thanks for asking. My ear isn't hurting anymore, and I've stopped sleeping 24/7.
HI. It looks freaky outside, and the weather forecast calls for even "freakier". Glad I don't have anyplace to go later today.Done:morning thingsreturned calls

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.
Within an hour, the fog and drizzle turned into a small blizzard, and now everything looks like a Christmas card scene. I'm glad I'm back from my errands. Back to work now. Back later for at my next coffee break.
It's just cold here, no snow. I miss snow. I like it. I think you're lucky.
Today I want to do a morning routine, go grocery shopping, and work on my writing project.
