Well, beyond working on our beautiful heel clicks, this morning is kind of a bust for not only Henry and I, but the Husband as well. We planned to swap off baby care with workouts; however, we both opted to go back to bed during our allotted workout time. It sounds nice, but I think it was one of those â€˜we would feel just as tired regardless of whether we went back to sleepâ€™ mornings. Exercise wouldâ€™ve energized me. I shouldâ€™ve sweated! Ah well.
Baked apples over pumpkin oatmeal. Yum. My current favorite flavor combo.
Initial Thoughts on 168 Hours
Iâ€™m currently reading the time management book 168 hours and, per the bookâ€™s instructions, logging how I spend my entire week. Yes, it is tedious, but itâ€™s also very illuminating (Iâ€™ll share my findings next Monday). Last week on the blog, I asked everyone what they would do with an extra hour a day. I said that funds were unlimited, so we had lots of silly answers like a massage a day (that was actually my answer!). But people said they would go for runs, walk their dogs, spend extra time with their families, or engage in a beloved hobby during the 25th hourâ€¦ stuff we really want and need to do.
It really got me thinkingâ€¦ Iâ€™m sure I waste an hour a day doing, well, nothing of importance. So I asked myself what would I really want to do with â€˜extraâ€™ time if I managed my day better. The answer was immediate: Spend more quality one-on-one time with Henry, and work on my novel. I really want to find time to do these things, and I know I can, I just been to be methodical about â€˜discoveringâ€™ the extra hour. Itâ€™s not about becoming a time hall monitor but just eliminating unnecessary activities â€“ like TV! Iâ€™m trying not to do anything differently this week as I log my hours, and Iâ€™m already amazed at how much time I blow on TV.
So â€“ just something to think about. What would you really do with an hour extra hour? What are your biggest time wasters?
