I for a long time have wished for a moment in time where the couch was my playground. I wanted to be the owner of my remote control, watch entire seasons of television shows in one sitting and eat snacks not meals. I dreamed of wearing only sweats or pajamas and taking half hour showers because I had the time to.
What a terrible reality it is!! I recently injured myself which has made my dream my harsh ‘slap-in-the-face’ reality. The first few days could only be described as a Euphoric state of being. However, now the bed sores are kicking in and I am ready to do something with myself.
This is where I truthfully believe you separate the drivers from the passengers. I am a driver, and since my couch is in park currently, my itch to attain speed is taking a toll on me.
This is what happens when I sit idly by:
– I start to over analyze… everything. “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” Well I wish I could stick to that little quote because for some odd and bizarre reason I tend to take everything that is functioning normally and make it into a catastrophe when I have nothing to do.
– I tend to throw my healthy eating down the toilet. Ice cream bars that are 90 calories are great when you eat just one… case closed.
– I sleep until the afternoon. My sleep-in time used to be 9 am, and now that number is teetering on 1… pm. It’s a sad reality, and resembles the life of a teenage boy.
There should be rules to this game! For example, no texting, bbm’ing, facebooking or msning when in deep thought. No more than one ice cream bar a day and waking up must occur in the am.
Nevertheless I need to get out of neutral and back into drive.
