it is done

This is what has been completely derailing me for the past 2 weeks. Every time I had a minute to spare, I would jump on this and it would be hours later before I realized it. Well, now it is done and I won't be working on it anymore. In truth, it was this and Arrested Development that kept me occupied.

They made a new season of this and I thought it would be good to watch the first 4 before watching the new season. And it was a good idea, as I had forgotten lots. But the seasons of this thing were long, 22 episodes - like it used to be. Anyway, I would sit down to do my turtle and turn on this and boom, hours would go by. It's nice to be able to lose myself in something but this was getting out of hand. Now, both are done. I finished Arrested Development last night and the turtle this morning. So that is the end of that. I do have a couple of more coming but I'm going to have to be more disciplined with them.

The good news is that this has kept me off facebook most of the week and that has been nice. That part I need to keep up. I just basically closed Facebook and turned off the notifications. Out of sight, out of mind is true in this case. I will go and look but after just a few minutes get bored and close it again. It's really the same thing over and over and over and over..........Enough of that.

Now I need to get back to work and structure the rest of my summer so I get things done. I have signed up for 3 classes that I must complete quickly. I need to take my Praxis tests for chemistry and biology. And I need to get my courses organized. Plus I need to get back on the walking wagon. That has slipped a whole lot since school ended.

This picture popped up in my memories yesterday:
Look at me!! Look at me!!! I'm freaking huge. My arms are gigantic. I have no neck at all. And look how I fit in that chair. I still sit in that chair but I take up a whole lot less room now. I know that motivation should be intrinsic and not extrinsic, but looking at a picture like this from 1 year ago really makes me want to keep going. So getting in my steps will be a priority for the rest of summer. Even if it's hot, I have to do it.

Okay, that's enough. Just needed to document the end of the sloth period of summer. Having some friends over today and need to get some things done.
