Every single day I vow to do certain things and mostly I don’t do them! I am quite a determined person who has achieved a lot in my life, but there are still these few things that I WANT to do, but seem to FAIL to do on a daily basis…
I know you’re all gagging to know what they are now, so here goes!
I want to get fit but for some reason I am completely resistant to actually getting fit. I dabble with things – I bought a pedometer to measure how many steps I was taking each day but it’s still sitting on my bedside table….I go to yoga once a week but never do any yoga in between even though I swear to my teacher each week that I’m going to…I think about going on long walks but I want someone to go with (walking on my own makes me feel quite depressed) so the days, weeks, months tick by and nothing changes!
I want to stop eating so much sugar! I manage to have a very healthy diet all day, until about 4 in the afternoon and then something stupid happens and I start thinking about chocolate…after that it’s downhill until bedtime…constant snacking on rubbish! I read about being more healthy and think about it and talk about it, but I don’t actually do it!
I want to write my new book, but something is stopping me…I actually have some free time these days where I could be writing, but I somehow manage to find about a million other, entirely unimportant things to do instead. I’m so excited about this book, it’s a great story and I love the characters so what’s the problem?
In short I am a GREAT BIG PROCRASTINATOR and I need help!!!!
I am going to be 50 this year, and I made the mistake of saying by the time I’m 50 I’ll be fit, healthy and writing reams every day! There’s only 5 months to go and it’s all going wrong!!!
Maybe I’m too hard on my self?
Any advice from all of you out there? Or do you all procrastinate as much as me?????
