You all know I love (am insanely obsessed with) reading. And I love blogging. And I
love have an addiction to Twitter. OBVIOUSLY I LOVE ALL OF THESE THINGS.
But from time to time I’ve really struggled (especially recently for some reason) with how much of the things I LOVE LOVE LOVE the most involve SITTING. I know this is a really strange post to write but let’s be honest..you know me…a post talking about my ass is probably not the most random post you’ll ever see.
Truly, lately, I’ve been struggling with not wanting to read or blog because I’m so darn sick of sitting to do these things. When I had a job before I got laid off, THAT required 8 hours of sitting with self imposed frequent breaks to make tea or go distract other people. So by the time it’s five o’clock and I come home to read and blog — I’ve been sitting for FOREVER and my ass is ready to revolt. And then I’m going to sit some more? And more? And then I’ll go to bed and and lie down. I mean, I have other things that don’t require sitting (you know — that time I get off Pinterest to make a receipe) but the two things I love doing most — reading & blogging — require an awfully lot of sitting. Some days it doesn’t bother me because I’d like nothing more than to snuggle up on the couch and read ALL DAY and just power through how bad my butt hurts. But other days I swear my butt and my legs are just going to get together and the next thing I know I’ll be frolicking around the apartment complex.
I know, as Americans (I’m an American..you may not be lol), we sit probably more than most people in the world (generalizing here) but sometimes it just GETS TO ME and then I have major reading slumps and don’t feel like blogging anymore (or just can’t sit down to comment on your blogs. Sorry. Sorry. I love you) because I think maybe I could find something better to do that doesn’t require sitting (though we all probably know it would end with me finding something else to do that requires sitting).
You all know that I’ve discovered that audiobooks HAVE helped me get more fit with my plan (though since Thanksgiving I’ve fallen off the wagon) but even with audiobooks in the mix while I work out or do household chores I STILL sometimes feel like not reading because I don’t feel like sitting. And I honestly…to add even more audiobooks into my day would be hard because I like reading with my eyes so much better and am wayyy faster than the narrator.
So in short, this ridiculously pointless post is a result of the fact that I sat down to write this post and my ass really hurt. So you get NOTHING of substance (ie: something that takes me longer than 10 minutes to write) from me today. NOTHING.
What about you — do you often feel like you spend a lot of time sitting between reading and blogging? Do you ever feel really antsy about it like I do? How do you balance all that SITTING with being mobile to still accomplish all of the reading and Interneting you do? And if I’m the only one who feels this way..we are going to pretend this post never happened. Let’s do that anyways. I just needed to express my frustrations!
