It’s the beginning of a new week and time to get motivated.
I must admit, for the past two days I’ve probably been the laziest person on the planet. The good thing is that I can’t stay that way for too long because I start to feel bad about it. So yesterday when I was feeling like a bag of garbage for barely leaving the couch, I decided to make a list of the things that I need to do this week.
It’s weird to go from a house of three to being alone again all of a sudden. I was letting all of my to-do’s pile up until after Blake left. But it still took a couple days for me to actually want to do anything productive.
One of the things on my list is to go grocery shopping, though I knew I definitely had to make a list beforehand because now I’m cooking for one and shouldn’t be buying the amount of food I normally do. So I made a list and noticed that it’s a lot easier to stick to a healthy meal plan when I look up meal ideas and mark down only what I need to make them. Now that I’m entering my third trimester of pregnancy I want to make sure I don’t pack on too many extra pounds, which means I have to watch what I eat and stay as active as possible. So as long as I stick to my grocery list and actually make the food, all I have to do is force myself to go to the gym (which won’t be easy I assure you).
Another big thing on my list is to complete a school related activity that I need to re-do for the third time. This one has been weighing on me heavily since I thought I was done with it twice already. I don’t even have the motivation to try again because I’m worried that it will be sent back over and over and I’ll probably go insane. But it’s important and I need to get it done in order to pass my class and take my final exams, so I’ve planned to set some time aside each day to work on a part of it. I think if I do it little by little I won’t get so frustrated with it.
On a side note, I have been really feeling the baby moving around lately and it truly is this incredible thing. Although I have to say, it is the freakiest feeling to get used to. It almost feels as though one of my internal organs shifted out of place for a second. But it’s also so reassuring to know that she’s doing okay and being active in there.
I hope everyone has a productive week, and if it’s not productive I hope it’s good in some other way 🙂
