It’s been a week. Time to come down from the post-election frenzy and get back to your pre-election way of life. No more stress eating in front of the TV while late night pundit surfing. Time to get back to the exercise routine that’s been on hold due to excessive and obsessive political blog reading.
I wonder how many people gained weight during this past election season? Personally, I didn’t overeat, but I definitely abandoned my workout schedule. I was up late flipping between Fox and MSNBC most nights which required staying up long enough for John Stewart to give me comic relief. I was so tired most mornings that I had no desire to get on the treadmill. Besides, I needed to check the internet and make sure nothing of consequence had happened while I was sleeping.
My blogging certainly slipped. My brain was so fried with political tidbits it was hard to think of anything else. Writing about the idiosyncrasies of my day didn’t seem worthy of the time or effort. Only blogging about political stories on a non-political blog seemed annoying so I spent my time reading posts in lieu of writing them.
I thought I’d wake up Wednesday pumped and ready to face life with a renewed vigor, but instead I was even more lackadaisical. Once the stress and tension of not knowing was gone, the exhaustion set in and honestly, it took me a few days to feel like I was back to normal.
So yesterday I worked out and cooked a creative, well balanced dinner. Today I’m blogging. Tomorrow? Who knows what I’ll cross off of my “to do” list but I do know that I have to make it official. No more talking smack on Johnny Mac or Sarah Palin jokes. I officially have more important things to do like working on my next book, performing isometric ass exercises each morning and picking up the dog shit in the yard.
What daily activities do you need to get back to?
