I've lost my motivation...and just don't know where to find it...LOL

For some reason, I am just not motivated at all lately. While at work, I contemplate all of the things that I'm going to accomplish when I get home. By the time I pick up the kids, make dinner, clean up after dinner, and MAYBE do a little laundry, I'm done for the day. I would really like to start walking, and have a beautiful park a few blocks away...and yet, I just never seem to make it there. Ugh...what is wrong with me?

You would think the nice weather would give me sufficient inspiration to want to get out there and enjoy it....NOT! I'm content staying in my little cocoon that is my house. I just feel pooped all the time. I can, on any given day, lay down and take a nap...doesn't matter if I slept until 10 a.m. either. I also can't hold my eyes open if I lay down. My boyfriend has stopped renting movies because unless I sit bolt upright on the couch, I'm out like a light, in about 20 minutes.

Is this a part of aging? Is that just what naturally happens when you get into your 30's? Am I just completely lazy? What's up with this????

Help me!

Hahahahaha! I find this funny because I've known you for how long??? I remember you always being a napper....but its all good, who feels like working at home after getting home from work? Ugh. Just forget about it and enjoy the beautiful weather we have finally been having!!!
Love ya peach!

Oh, it's worse than ever. I just NEVER have energy. What's up with that? I know that I come from a long line of nappers...but geez, this is ridiculous!

You are a kid and can't wait to grow up so that you can stay up late and stuff. It's just one of the perks. What happened to wanting to do that? I need toothpicks in my eyes by 9-9:30!

Old age...it sucks. (whine, pout, wail)

You're a working mom with boys!! Duh. If I lie down in the horizontal position on the couch..I'm done. Throw in a glass of wine and I'm soooooo gone!

Plus, she's lazy.

Thoughts galore,
That is so me! I hate it! But, I was very good yesterday. I scrubbed the bathroom and kitchen floors, loaded and ran dishwasher, did a load of laundry, and...you ready for this???? I went for about a 3 mile bike ride. Then, when I got home...I was done! It's an improvement.

And Cy....SHUP! I will kick your ass!

Not sure how far into your 30's you are, but it does seem that energy levels tend to decrease with age. I'm sure kids can do it to you, too. I had periods of time (years) where I felt so lazy, unmotivated and had just no energy to do anything, but I'm sure my case is totally different. You could always get a check up and make sure it isn't a health problem, though. Hope it gets better...

I'm 27 and feel the same way. Once upon a time my house was spotless. Now I'm lucky if I get the opportunity to put the dishes away....so i just grab clean ones out of the dishwasher to use and reload dirty one s with 1/2 clean ones and re run it again. Sad I know.

So glad I am not alone in my plight! I guess a spotless house is just a thing of the past...but will keep trying. LOL

You visited my blog and left a message saying that we had a lot in common...after reading this blog I am CONVINCED that we do! I have always been someone who has a ton of energy, always up for anything...now I am three months pregnant and EXHAUSTED all the time! I would nap every day, maybe twice a day, if I could! But, I work in advertising and naps are just not an option for my days. By the time I get home I am so tired that I can barely talk myself into eating something! I have to say that my bed is my favorite place to be right now...and to my husband's dismay, I go there to sleep only. :) Have a great weekend!
