So harsh it hurts

The Resolution (or maybe an experiment)

No more TV.  I mean it.  Except for Battlestar Galactica and So You Think You Can Dance (of course).  And all the wholesome children’s programming from which I have no escape.  In my mind I’m having productivity issues and I’m wondering what would happen if I just stop spacing out in the evenings watching crap (because really is there much on right now that isn’t crap) – ‘cause what I try to do, see, is put off certain activities that need some quiet time, such as work, until the evening when I know everyone will be asleep but then I’m tired and I have the TV on and its constant babbling is SO SOOTHING that I end up staring at it, with maybe a little drool tinkling down my chin gently like a meditation fountain, until it has sucked up 2-3 hours easy.

It occurred to me tonight, as I first watched Material Girls (gack!) before channel surfing and then landing at the old standby Adult Swim, that maybe I should just shut off the TV.  And then I wouldn’t hear it anymore.  And maybe I could do something else.

Yeah, I’m bright like that.

It also occurred to me tonight that whenever I sit down for “just a minute” to unwind and get my energy back… that I never get any energy back at all.  I just get more tired.  What’s up with that?

I’m also really tired of whining on my blog.  Because it feels like that’s all I’m doing.  (I’m tired, I’m sick again, I’m not pregnant, wah wah wah.)

(If I stop being hard on myself I really WILL just watch crappy TV all the time, you know?)

So if I replace my “wind down” time in front of the TV with a quick workout do you think that will help get some energy back?  Any good “pick me up” suggestions?

Take that, rut!  And your sweaty butt groove, too!
