Works For Me Wednesday- Giving Myself a Break

WFMW  I had a post planned for today. It was a great tip, with photos, possibly videos, investigative reporting. It was going to be Pulitzer Prize winning. And then today happened. I won’t go into today, but it kind of kicked my behind. So guess what? I put the kids to bed at 7 (about 1/2 hour to an hour early). Well that was after I took them out to a non- organic, non grass fed anything restaurant and let them eat highly processed food because the food on the “menu plan” didn’t feel like getting cooked. Or maybe the cook didn’t feel like cooking. One of those.

Then I parked my buns on the couch, turned on mindless TV and relaxed. I have people coming over tomorrow morning and my house isn’t clean and the food isn’t cooked. I have laundry that both needs to be done and needs to be folded and put away. I have a to do list and an email inbox that makes me want to cry just thinking about it.

But you know what? NONE of it is getting done tonight. If I wouldn’t have started South Beach (again) yesterday, I would have grabbed a big pile of chocolate and a glass of wine. But since I can’t do that, I am dreaming about chocolate and wine while doing absolutely nothing. Tomorrow, back to the whole mom, wife, homemaker thing. Tonight, I am doing a whole lotta nothing. Haven’t you earned it too?

  1. Very refreshing! By evening, I, too, am often “done.” I give in to the feel and relax with the Duggars, or Survivor, or whatever. You’re right: it’s all still there in the morning. Have a great day!

  2. Yup, I do this too! Every now and then, mom needs a break!

  3. Good for you for taking a break! You deserve it!!! And good luck with starting South Beach. That thing kicked my booty during phase 1! Praying you awoke today feeling rested and all things supermom!

  5. Enjoy your break.

    Please read about the South Beach diet. Especially since you are getting more and more into “real food,” that diet is not real-food friendly! It is dangerously low in everything (fat, carbs, protein). You simply need more calories and more fat than that! There is a great article on Weston A. Price’s website about why it is dangerous if you’re interested. But, I think you will find it deprivation and impossible to stick to. And that’s no good!
