Yesterday – A Review. . .Staying On Track

The morning started off with an early morning phone call from none other than my grandmother. “Who’s calling?” She asks. Mind you my phone was the one that starting ringing at 4:47 AM (3 minutes before my alarm was set to go off). “Grandma?” I say in a sleepy voice. “Baby? Why’d you call me?” She asks. I laugh and inform her that she had called me. To which she said her phone had  rung too. Interesting. Not believing in coincidences,  I make note of the time. Three minutes to wake up. What a better way to start the day than a non emergency call from grandma? Not too bad. It made me smile a bit.

So I got up. I made cooked some steel-cut oats in a coconut almond blend milk, with golden raisins and a couple of dashes of nutmeg (yummy)! With my pre-work out drink ready and my oatmeal downed I was ready to hit the gym by 5:35 AM. Not too shabby. I’m curious if I will be able to keep this up for the whole week.

Galvanized by the momentum of my early start, I made sure my husbands things were situated before I got myself together (washed and weighed this body) for a few hours of exam practice.

Alas, the procrastinator in me won and found something – equally as productive, but not high on the priority list – for me to do. Guilty I am of blogging for most of the day. You see this Writing 101 and Blogging 101 has got me hooked. So many fascinating people with interesting stories. . .humors. . .experiences. Needless to say my day was lost, but at least I found some new blogs to follow and I was even followed in return. Sheesh what a day. Whoot! Whoot (say it aloud, it’ll make you smile 😉 )! Now I’m off to do today’s Writing 101 assignment. Hey I did actually study today. Just a FYI. 😉

The Busiest Procrastinator

Have you ever had something to do, but managed to find everything else in the world to do instead?

Today is yet another one of those days for me. Fear not, that which must be accomplished will be accomplished. But today, it is likely to be accomplished at the last possible moment.

For instance, I could be practicing yet one of the many exams that I have already taken, ad naseum, in preparation for my Series 65 exam. But AM I? Why nooooo silly. I’m writing for my blog, after clearly telling myself I would not write until tomorrow.

I really should crack down on myself. I know that if I keep this up, I will feel all guilty about the time I wasted when I could have. . .no wait, SHOULD have been studying. So what to do? Grocery shopping sounds like a far more appealing option. . .Contemplating a healthy recipe for carrot cake even more so. Researching things that must be done to do to be a certified Life Coach sounds both practical and responsible. Now I’m just trying to justify the procrastination.

It is for this reason I usually write my to do list down. At least in the striking through of things, I get a mini feeling of accomplishment. My swipes through the traitorous labors feel rain down victoriously as I cross them off the face of my sheet of paper. Yes. I should write. . . A TO-DO LIST! Yesssssssssssss. . .awwwww pooh! I’m doing it again.
