- anything related to house work
- talk on the phone
- be on the computer
- return emails
- play with my camera
- play with the kids
- think about weight loss
- think about my ginormous to-do list
Those are normally things that I do when the kids are napping or there is a break in the action. Today I grabbed my August Runner's World that I haven't had a chance to read yet and headed out to the deck to sit in the sun. It was heavenly and I can't believe how relaxed I feel after just a short amount of time.
I have to be honest sitting without doing anything is hard for me to do. I got up 3 times to see how much time was left on the timer. This might be a key piece to my weight loss success. I am crazy most of the time and need to have my plate full all the time. I am not willing to let anything go so I am constantly frazzled. Maybe if I make time to relax I will be less likely to dive into a bag of chips. Hey...it is worth a try.
