I can barely think straight. I am so tired. I got three hours sleep last night and I am absolutely running on fumes right now. I continued to eat well today although I admit that I did not do great on the exercise.
I try not to write on this blog too much about things that are not health related, but I feel compelled to unload a tad… Today a family member had surgery due to a health issue and I was at the hospital for approximately seven hours waiting with his wife for him to be released. He is fine – the operation went well – but there is a sort of follow up visit that I will likely be attending with them in two days. I am scheduled to meet with two friends tomorrow – one who needs to talk and the other who asked for assistance with some information gathering. On top of that I am in dire need of finding more time to work on and complete two separate huge, detailed projects that I have committed myself to finishing for a birthday party that takes place this Sunday. Working on one of these endeavors was the reason I was up so late last night and I was able to use the rest of my free time for this today as well, but even with all that time already put in I still only finished a couple parts of a very large whole. I even have a Halloween party I am supposed to attend on Saturday evening, but – with no costume planned and less availability – I doubt that I will be able to go.
Life just got really busy, really quickly, and I wasn’t expecting it. I am the only one I have to blame. I’m one of those sickos who has trouble saying ‘no’ regardless of the fact that they are feeling completely overwhelmed. Plus, I love helping out and despise the thought of turning down someone who needs my assistance.
Anyhow, I guess that’s my lame excuse as to why I didn’t workout properly today. As I have been writing this, I have been trying to build up the energy to push out some lunges or stomach crunches to make myself feel better about having such poor activity levels, but my stores are all tapped out. I need sleep.
