Apart from that, all I've been doing is sitting at my desk trying to study Japanese (exam 4 weeks away), which is often broken up with A LOT of net-surfing different running websites, health food blogs and ideas for things to do when Scott gets here (3.5 weeks!!). So by the end of the day I feel like I've spent the WHOLE day at the computer doing..shit all. This really depresses me.
Yesterday I was up at 5:30 and went for a great 7.5 km run. Had showered, enjoyed a raw pumpkin, persimmon and oatmeal thickshake, and was at my desk, text books open by 9.
I actually did pretty well, staying pretty focussed on my grammar and kanji work books and before I knew it, it was 12:30 and I was hungry! So I went down stairs and enjoyed a deliciously bowl of orange, carrot, spinach, pumpkin and parsely soup. Yum yum, full tummy. Felt tops by this point of the day.
|Proof to Scott I was out!|
Moral of the story is:
1. If you want to get things done properly you must take breaks properly.
2. Get out of the house at least once during the day to clear the mind. Not through net-surfing, channel flicking and eating!!
