1. An object in motion tends to stay in motion
2. An object at rest tends to stay at rest
The exception for both being unless acted on by an external unbalanced force.
Since I have been off for the summer, I have been an object at rest. My ass and couch have re-formed their loving bond. This is what I was afraid of. Once I settle into the couch, the inertia keeps me there. I tend to stay at rest. When I was working I was in motion, moving around, getting things done. Not so much these days. So I know I need that external unbalanced force to kick my inert ass off the couch. What is this force? How will it get me moving?
The only thing I can come up with is there is no external force to set me in motion. There is only willpower. Determination. Drive. It's my choice to lounge around, watching crap TV and surfing the net. Thus, it is also my choice to get off the couch. Not an easy feat by any means. I mean, I really like being at rest. A lot. As much as I've wanted to be, I've never been a go-getter, a doer. A rise at 6 and go go go go until bed. Nope. Sadly, I am a sitter. A watcher. A procrastinator.
So what am I going to do?
First, I am going to close this friggin' laptop and go clean the bathroom that has been waiting for me for WAY too long.
Next, I will get my ass worked out (which I didn't do yesterday).
Finally, I will start the dough for our pizza dinner this evening.
Because I know all you lovely people out there in blogger land will want to know if I managed these terribly insurmountable tasks, I will update y'all tonight.
Here I gooo...breaking the inertia!
To be continued. . .
I know you are wondering...Did she do it? Did she accomplish simple tasks?? The answer is YES! I cleaned that darn bathroom to within an inch of its life, then got on the bike and pedaled to nowhere for 1/2 hr and did my 100 sit ups. Yeah boyyy!
Thank you, thank you. I know, I am fabulous. And, the pizza was darn tasty!
Tomorrow, I must battle the demon inertia once again, and GET MY ASS OFF THE COUCH!!
Wish me luck.
