Lack of Motivation Day

Today is a lack of motivation day!

While my husband went off to work, I was left with a stinking headache.  My beautiful daughter has gone into school for a school production rehearsal – huge thanks to a friend that has taken her and is bringing her home.  My son is sat on the sofa on his x-box.

I should be taking the dog out for a walk but I just can’t face the effort of getting my son up and moving.  I feel like a bad mum.  He needs to exercise and it will make him feel better but I just can’t face it.

I should be making some meals to put in the freezer for my husband to take to work on his day shifts – but it all seems like too much effort.

I should be putting away the organic veg delivery that was delivered earlier – but I don’t feel like it.

And so the list goes on.  I continually beat myself up about the things that I should be doing but aren’t.

Achievements

What I should be doing is listing all the things that I have done so far today:

  1. Had a shower – 1 tick to me!
  2. Done 2 loads of washing
  3. Put some clothes away for my daughter
  4. Fed my son
  5. Uploaded some receipts to my accounts
  6. Checked the post
  7. Written a blog
  8. Added some things to the diary
  9. Changed my regular organic veg order
  10. Made another batch of fabric softener (yep I make my own

Ok so it’s not a big list, but the point is, I have achieved things today.

I have more of these days than I would like – my “can’t be bothered” days.  What am I going to do about it?  Continue to take the pills and write an achievement list to go into my much loved planner.

What do you do to on days like this?

Challenges are what make us.

Until next time.  Lyn
