Happy Friday! Wait, it is Friday, right? It’s easy to lose track of days when everyday essentially feels like Groundhog Day. I’m currently wrapping up week 6 of working from home and I have to admit that while I do miss the office, I have no problem staying home for a few more weeks in order to be safe.
As usual, since it’s the last Friday of the month, I’m linking up with Marcia from Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions. Let’s get this party started!
I runfess that working out is keeping me sane
For the last few weeks, I’ve been getting in a morning workout before logging on for work. While some days I’d rather just stay in bed and enjoy the extra 60-90 minutes of sleep, I know that I need to complete my workout. Not only does it help set the tone for my day, but it gives me a boost of energy as well. While my workouts aren’t as intense as they were 6 weeks ago, I’m enjoying getting more Peloton classes and trying out new workouts (like jump rope).
I runfess that I now hate going to the grocery store
It’s so sad to admit but I now hate going to the grocery store. What used to be a very enjoyable experience now just feels me with dread and anxiety. I now only go to the grocery store every 10-14 days and I bring a list, divided up into categories, so that I can get in and out as quickly as possible. I used to love browsing the aisles and finding new products to try but now it’s like I’m on a secret CIA mission. Also it’s been frustrating that some items are almost never restocked, like paper products and cleaning supplies. Oh, and oddly I haven’t been able to find fresh spinach for WEEKS! It’s a bummer because I use spinach for a lot of things – smoothies, egg scrambles, add to salads, etc. I don’t understand why that continues to be out of stock?
I runfess that work is kicking my ass
I’ve spoken with other people about this so I know I’m not the only one, but work has been kicking my ass the last few weeks. I’m working minimum 10 hours a day and I’m pretty tired. By the time I log off all I want to do is eat dinner and watch TV. Which sucks because I was hoping to be a bit more productive during this “stay at home” time. I’ve done a few smaller projects on the weekend so I’ve been semi-productive I guess? I’m very hopeful that things will die down a little by mid-May.
I runfess that it’s a shame that people don’t have common sense
Every time I see a “protest” on the news I have to shake my head. Are these people really this stupid? Yes, eventually we have to find a plan to re-open up the states, but now is not the time. Especially when COVID-19 cases keep rising. And can someone explain to me why you would open up beaches but then tell everyone to practice social distancing? Or how do you practice social distancing when you’re cutting someone’s hair or giving a massage? Call me crazy but I’d like to protect people’s lives over profits. It’s just so frustrating and infuriating!
That’s it for this month – thanks for reading my runfessions! I hope that you have a great weekend!
