Journal Entry Type #8

lethargic.jpgThere’s many topics to choose from: Tyra Banks cover on Sports Illustrated, the Duke and Duchess of Susssex’s baby, Netflix’s Ted Bundy focus/obsession, Donald Trump’s 1 billion dollar loss according to his taxes, and the costumes/outfits from the Met Gala.  I’m covering none of them although I’d like to lose 30 pounds like Tyra did, glad I don’t have a baby to take care of, glad Ted Bundy is dead, waiting for the U.S. government to not be a shit show, and the fact some people really don’t like Lady Gaga including a few of my friends.

Ever since I came back from Los Angeles, I’ve been lethargic and not really having the motivation to do much of anything besides work and sleep.  My eating habits slipped and now have to work on getting it back.  I’m not really an emotional eater, but lately I have been.  I’m not sure why.  Honestly, I don’t know.  If I did, I wouldn’t be overeating.  Right? I haven’t exercised at all this week, which is not the norm because I’m trying to do 3 to 4 workout sessions a week.  I’m up to jogging five miles, but if I’m ever going to get at a decent weight, I have to do a lot more than nothing like I’ve been doing this week.

My life has become filled with doctor appointments and other things that get in the way of my financial and personal freedom.  This is life and yes, as much as I hate this word, “adulting” is hard.  Also, when did the word, “mansplaining” come into our vocabulary?  Never mind, I looked it up.  It’s been a word since March 2018 according to Webster Dictionary.   I’ve never had it done to me before (to my knowledge), but I don’t care to think that far back if it did happen.

My predicament right now is my pure laziness and not wanting to do much of anything because of countless things you don’t want to hear.  I will say headaches tend to wreck your day in many ways and for me it’s been the last good 15 years.  You learn to live and deal with it, but yes, it sucks ass.  It also drains your energy, which is what I’ve been feeling these past few weeks.  I’m hoping this ends soon.  I’m working on more short stories, flash fiction, adding more movie and TV recommendations, and rewriting my first novel so I can move onto my second one I’m hoping takes half as long to write.

Sometimes, I get stuff done. Other times, very little.  This will probably be half and half and the latter part of it is where I’ll get it done.  On that note, I’m off to jog 5 miles and if I have the motivation exercise another 40 minutes.  Stay tuned for more blogs, sooner than later, I’m hoping.
