I am constantly exhausted. No matter how well I sleep, I wake up tired, I work all day tired, and I go to bed tired.
A friend at work (who I’m sure is really sick of hearing me saying how tired I am all the time) told me that I need to take a multi-vitamin, maybe drink protein shakes, or even try some essential oils. She said even with dealing with raising a kid, I shouldn’t be this tired all the time.
And she’s right.
So I got to thinking about my lonely, neglected, elliptical machine that is sitting sadly by itself in the basement. This is the machine that I bought almost 5 years ago and have used only a handful of times.
There was always an excuse not to pay this poor bugger any attention.
First it was that the tiny room it lived in my non-central air apartment was too hot to work out in. There was no window unit in that room.
Then we bought our house and its new room was a very large, very cool basement. But, I became pregnant shortly after we moved in and I just wasn’t feeling it.
Once I had Lily, my new excuse was that I just didn’t have the time.
I know I really should start getting some use out of this expensive machine and I’m sure even a short time with it daily will make both me and it feel better that it’s finally getting some attention.
Therefore, I’m making a vow to the both of us that I will find time every day to visit it, even if it’s for just a short while. The funny thing is, is that this writing challenge has helped me decide on this vow. I figure that if I was able to make the time to write on a daily basis no matter how tired I was, I can now use the time to work out, especially since I won’t HAVE to commit to writing daily.
So, beginning tomorrow night (my last slice for tomorrow is already written) I WILL make the commitment to take this time for myself.
Or maybe I’ll commit to drinking more wine…
