Today I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything

I went out with some girlfriends last night, on a pub crawl (my first pub crawl). I justified the expense and all that booze by reminding myself it was a fundraiser for breast cancer… but it was still expensive and I still drank far too much. Today, I don’t want to do anything. I’m not feeling hungover really, I’m just tired (out late, up early) and this is the first day I’ve had without an obligation of some sort so it is so nice to just stay home. As much as I’d love to do nothing though, the housework needs to get done (at least I did the laundry yesterday!) and I need to go grocery shopping, which means I have to leave the house at some point (albeit I’ll be doing it in my comfy clothes!).

Since I got back from vacation, I’ve been pretty slack. I haven’t been eating well, mostly because I’ve not been home much, and I’ve hardly worked out. I’ve also been spending a tonne of cash, with Mother’s Day, my mom’s birthday, catching up with friends, my cousin moving to town, and then yesterday getting my hair done, doing a bit of shopping, and going out for this fundraiser. May is always an expensive month in my family. I have my Dad’s birthday coming up as well, and I’ve promised to go home for the long weekend to visit with him and to go through my Grandma’s stuff with my Grandpa and let him know what I want.

Even with those things upcoming, I seriously need to get it together this week… the weather has been nice (finally!) so I’m going to get back into my summer routine of walking to and from work. It’s also time to cut back on eating out and spending, and lastly… no more alcohol. I’ve been trying to limit my alcohol the last few weeks but more so than calories it’s all the water I retain after drinking that makes me feel like hell. So, no more of that for at least a few weeks.

Time for a re-adjustment, time to get it together.

  1. Hey you got this! Nothing wrong with a little slack in our lives sometimes, ya know? And I also think having that slack can be so motivating when you wanna get more strict with things again. whether it’s money, eating, or drinking, or whatever it may be. I find that it is good motivation for me! And I am glad you have had so many fun things lately, that’s what life’s supposed to be about, am I right?? And you looked suppper cute last night, makes it worth the cost of the hair appt IMHO ;-)

    • Thanks girl!
      It is good to have fun sometimes, I don’t regret that, it’s just that I don’t have much capability for moderation. I’ve got to learn how to not be so extreme.

  2. We had one of those days yesterday due to my subsequent drinking on Saturday night. We need those days to recharge. It is a new week, here we go! I’m with Jobo, you looked great last night!!!

    • Thanks, you guys are awesome!
      Oh man… yesterday was so lazy for the first half, but then I got the urge to clean and I went to town on my kitchen. Pour counters didn’t even see it coming.

  3. I heard that song on the radio the other day. Love it. Then again, I haven’t found a Bruno Mars song I hate yet. Ha.

    I rarely go out drinking anymore, but when I do, I discover just how old I am. It takes me much longer to recover than it used to. :-/

  4. Isn’t it weird that post-college we’re all like, “whoooa, spend endless amounts of money on drinks? No thanks.” In college, I didn’t think twice to several nights out drinking each week, but now at 26 I seriously contemplate drinks, because the expense isn’t something I can always justify.

    Good for you walking to work!

  5. God, I relate to that song just a leeeeetttle too much. But yes for getting back in your routine. I love having fun and letting go, but I also love the return to all things sane in regards to health and money. I was actually kind of looking forward to going to work today. I can’t believe I just said that.

  6. I could have written the same post. I’ve been slacking too. The most important thing for me to remember is that one ‘mistake’ doesn’t mean the day/week/month is shot. Each meal, each snack and each work out is a chance to make a positive decision. Just because I had Reese’s cups for breakfast doesn’t mean my lunch has to be more candy. But it sure would taste good.
