Hot by Blogher – Week 1 Challenge

March 21, 2009

I admit it, this week I took the path of least resistance. I opted for challenge number three, the personal challenge, and let me tell you why. I have a lot going on right now, I’m 28 weeks pregnant and I work in a tax/accounting office. Basically that means that by putting in 9-10 hours at work every day and working on Saturdays I’m actually “taking it easy”. Last tax season I worked 11-12 hour days and 6-8 hours on Saturdays. My overall energy level has been squat lately and yet when I come home I’ve been trying to organize the house and get the baby’s room ready. Between that and keeping up with the interwebs who has any time!

So this week I really concentrated on taking a half hour a night to just completely relax. I shut the laptop, turned off my phone and just sat quietly. Most of this time I spent with my husband though not by myself. He’s getting ready to be out of town during the work week for the next four weeks so I think we both really needed to get in some quality time. As a result I’m wicked behind in my reader, I haven’t posted anything since last tuesday and I’ve been a really poor commentor on other sites. However, I could tell a marked difference in both my mood and my hubby’s mood. We both seem to be a little more calm and our fuses with eachother are definitely longer.

Overall it was a pretty good week. I have to go have the 3-hour glucose test today because my first test showed high blood sugar amounts so I’m guessing that next week I will take on whatever sort of food challenge there is because I see a restricted diet in my near future.

Hope everyone is doing well!!!

    Spending time with your husband can still be “you” time if you know you need to reconnect with him. I’m sure it felt relaxing to be offline for a little bit, too!

    And don’t worry, future challenges will still try for a mix of harder and easier tasks, so you can choose which best fits you for the week.

    I’ve been turning off the laptop more and more lately. It’s good to take a break once in a while. The internet is a total time suck.
