Jason could sense that I was lacking in enthusiasm yesterday. I was disappointed that I wasn't psyched to strength train and I hadn't really realized that I was dragging until he pointed it out. So, he pushed me and challenged me and encouraged me and I survived. I tried to explain that it wasn't that I didn't WANT to be there, I was just BURNT OUT.
Here's a breakdown of a typical day:
Work - 8 hours
Gym - 1.5 hours
Class - 3 Hours
Sleep - 8 Hours (8 is a total exaggeration, I'd love to get 8hrs...)
Ok, so it's only 4 things, but this adds up to 20.5 hours. I have 3 and a half extra hours in the day that I usually fill with taking a shower, cooking, driving, playing with my dogs, watching MasterChef or just laying around.
On that note, I wouldn't live my life any other way. I've never lived my life any other way and I can't imagine having daily hours of downtime. If I DID have some extra time, I would probably sleep more, finish my second bachelors degree (which will happen eventually), or take up a new hobby. I really do enjoy packing up my schedule like this, but I can't say it doesn't wear me out. I have a reputation for falling asleep during movies, seriously. One time I woke up for work with my computer still on my lap (hands on keys). I slept the ENTIRE night like that! It bothers me that I rely so heavily on caffeine, but if I didn't I'd be face down on the floor by 7pm.
So, (grandma) this is why I don't have cable in my home. I have no idea when this would be used... It's not that I can't afford cable - believe me - sitting in front of the tube would be MUCH cheaper than 'Body by Jason.' I guess cable's just not important to me.
