Not sure what happened
but I've completely lost my focus. That's really bad, because right now I need laser focus. We are 2 weeks out from the end of the semester. I have to write 3 final exams. I have to get the grading done. I have to get started on my classes. Focus, focus, focus. I need to get my act together and I need to do it now.
Yesterday after work I went to Crossfit. I came home and was completely exhausted. I stopped at the store, not completely sure why, and bought cookies, ice cream, and popcorn. And proceeded to eat most of them. Not exactly sure why except that I was tired, I have lots to do this weekend, and my room here is a complete disaster. I have boxes and and crap all over. Packaging from things I've bought sit on the floor and on my desk. This is crazy. I sat and organized my classes last weekend then didn't look and reprinted some stuff. UGH!!!! So I was really tired last night and I had to get up and proctor the SAT this morning. They provided us food but it was junky. Sandwiches, pound cake, and M&Ms. I ate it all. Came home around 1:30 pm and passed out on the couch. I mean passed.....out.... Woke up a little while ago and am now trying to get my act together. I have a lot of work to do this weekend. I need to get started on it. First I'm going to clean this place so I have an nice area to work. Then I will get started on the things I need to do.
In other news, I got this:
It came yesterday and I love it already. For the past year or so I've had the FitBit Flex. Bleh....I've had other FitBit items before and they are just okay. Part of the problem I've always had with them is that you can't monitor your progress unless you get on the computer. The FitBit only has lights to indicate how you are doing. My Flex had 5 lights and when I met my goals all 5 lights would light up. The problem is when there were 4 lights lit, I didn't know if I was 10 steps from my goal or 110. Plus, if I wore it on my left wrist I couldn't wear a watch and the battery life sucked. It was rechargeable but it always seemed to die at the worst possible moment. The Garmin Vivofit has none of those problems. It has a display where you can see steps, calories, goal, etc. and it is watch. Nice. Also, the battery is replaceable and lasts like a year. Nice. And, when you don't move for awhile, a red arrow comes on to tell you move. Nice. I really like it. It is a little bigger than the Flex but I think I'll adjust. Hopefully it will help me get off my butt more.
Alright, that's enough for now. I have got to get something done in order to feel good about myself. I'm going to clean this room up right now.
