This is something I've seen readers ask other bloggers and have been asked before by friends in person or online. I don't think any one of us is particularly better at fitting things in than others, but rather it's a matter of priority.
For example, one person's priority may be to vacuum the house and clean the bathroom weekly and design rooms so they coordinate. My house might be vacuumed once every three weeks, my bathroom cleaned every two weeks and my rooms are pretty much not coordinated/designed whatsoever. Does a picture on the wall count?
Yes, it's my dream to have a coordinated bedroom, an adorable baby room and a zen reading space/yoga corner. But for now, those dreams are not my reality. For now, I prefer to spend my time exercising.
But it's also a matter of being in a rut. This sweating thing is what my body loves and my mind craves, but that doesn't mean I don't also love a lazy Sunday morning sleeping in, reading a good book and going to a late breakfast.
After being in said sweaty rut, last Sunday I slept in until the crazy hour of 9 am! I think my body was in serious need of some extra sleep. As strange as it was to not be up with the sunrise, it was also a sigh of relief. Being normal isn't so bad.
In the last month, I've reacquainted myself with the library and actually been READING the books I checked out - shocker, eh? I've learned that I really have to schedule in the reading time, much like my workouts, in order for it to actually happen. Otherwise, we get sucked into another NCIS show or I flitter away an evening reading blogs.
For now, we have the luxury of exercising at 5 am or 7 pm, eating dinner when we want, or running to the grocery store, a bar, the mall, a friend's house at the drop of the hat. But it won't always be like that. For now, we're making the most of being a young couple with nothing other than a dog to care for.
As it is now, I see my current priorities as: 1. my relationship 2. exercise and nutrition 3. friends and family 4. future 5. wedding planning 6. house stuff
What things do you find yourself prioritizing over others?
