It happens to me every year. Every. Stinkin’. Year. A midsummer slump. Please tell me I’m not the only one. My motivation and creativity has completely abandoned me. My food intake is a disaster. Literally for the past two week I have eaten more junk food than I have at any given point in my life, and it shows. It really shows.
I literally just want to sit and watch every show I missed over the past year including Awkward (probably my new favorite show – thanks Bobbi Jo.), reruns of Drop Dead Diva, Don’t Trust the B* in Apartment 23, and others I can’t think of. I mean, seriously, what’s going on. Again, someone, please tell me I’m not alone here.
So, between yesterday and today I decided things needed to change. I decided to quit bitchin’ and do something. (Totally ordered that print by the way. – Love it!) My midsummer slump is ending early this year and I’m am going to soak up every beautiful minute it has to offer. Not only did I go for a five mile walk/run both yesterday and today. I threw away all the ‘junk’ food and loaded my fridge with vegetables, fruits, almonds, yogurt and other healthful energy inducing foods.
It’s amazing what a few little changes can do. I’m already sensing a tiny bit of my motivation and creativity creeping back in.
I’m also crossing a few things off my to-do list including paying bills, checking/reading/responding to over 2,000 emails (yeah, I’m terribly sorry If you emailed me and I have not responded. I’m blaming it on my Midsummer Slump. I’m getting there.), coming up with a better blogging schedule, and even writing some goals. It feels good.
So, watch out summer, cause here I come!
