I’ve found myself posting way to many times lately about how drained and sick I’ve been feeling. I have no energy, no drive, and as such my productivity here on the blog and and in my novel writing has taken a serious hit. And I know exactly why I’m feeling this way. I’m over weight, lazy, and addicted to junky comfort food.
This is not a new revelation to me. I’ve been this way for quite some time but it’s only really begun to take a major toll on me in the last six months since I started my current job. This job requires no walking, no steps, and very rarely requires me to leave my desk. I snack more here, eat bigger lunches, and stare at the computer longer. And that computer thing I think is a big part of my energy drain as well. I have two giant monitors that I stare at all day long and it has this weird effect of tweaking me and making me jittery while also draining my energy.
So now I’ve come to the point (again) where my pants don’t even fit well with the elastic-fit waist bands and I’m tired all of the time which has made me more irritable with the kids which makes them act out more because of it. I’d like to say I’m looking to make wholesale changes in my lifestyle and diet but I’m hoping a new job I start Monday will take care of a lot of that for me. I’ll have more on the specific job and what it means for me and my writing later, but for now I’ll just tell you that it involves a lot more walking to get to work, I won’t have as much time to snack because I’ll be crazy busy, and I’l spend far less time in front of a computer.
We’ll see how this works out though. More to come.
