I like accomplishing stuff.

In my early 20s, I didn't need to go to the gym. I went out to bars, and danced until the wee hours. It was a lot of fun, and I was in excellent shape. It did tend to make it hard to keep a job, though.

Now that I am in my early 30s, I am not in such great shape. I really need to lose 30-40 pounds. More than that, though, I need to get back into decent shape. I'm not looking to run a marathon, but it would be nice to just take off walking and not completely tire myself out. Plus, the, uh, marital relations were quite nice when I was not such a lump. I'm working on getting myself into better shape. I've spent more time in the gym in the last 2 weeks than any time since high school. I have had some kind of sore muscles constantly since I started going to the gym, but it feels good.

Today was a great day for getting stuff done. I watered the plants and harvested some tomatoes. I paid 3 bills, and then went to the gym for awhile. I walked 2 miles on the treadmill and did some work with some of the weight machines. Then I came home and started cooking pork chops for dinner in the crock pot. I got 3 loads of laundry done, ironed some fabric, and embroidered 18 bookmarks. I did some work on managing my embroidery design collection. That is a job worthy of Sisyphus. I have thousands of designs, and I'm constantly getting more of them. Finally, I got some goddess keychain designs ready to embroider tomorrow.

Now, I think it might be time to curl up with my book, my cat, and a glass of Tia Maria, then go to bed so that I can be productive again tomorrow.

What wonderful inspiration. I have accomplished much today and I'm hoping to get myself in gear for joining the local gym this week.
