That's not really true anymore because I have moved to NYC for the remainder of the summer and my round-trip commute is now closer to 45 minutes to an hour. It's wonderful in that sense, but since moving to New York City I have begun walking a lot. I'm trying to get back to the weight I was in the beginning of the school year before I had the crazy roommate who tells people my accomplishments are hers because she made me stress eat so much, and I'm doing this by walking a lot as to not hurt my injured knee or over exert myself. Plus, it's nice to come home after a long day of work and plug in my headphones and listen to music or a podcast while I enjoy NYC. I'm walking a ridiculous amount and I'm loving every minute of it. (To put it into perspective, I get so lost on my walks that I've walked 31 miles in the past 4 days).
But, again, I come home and I'm exhausted. I shower, get in bed, and watch Parks and Rec because I just don't have the energy to read and focus on reading. Plus, walking a lot makes me tired and I'm actually getting more sleep than I've ever gotten before in the past several years. It's crazy!
But, yeah, I'm kind of adjusting to this new lifestyle choice, and I don't really know how to get myself back into reading because I'm not willing to give up the exercise for it. I've spoken to a few people and they say it takes time to adjust to spending most of your time working and traveling to and from work because such a thing is exhausting, but I am so ready to be past that stage.
So, I was wondering if anyone has advice on how to get back into reading when dealing with a full plate of exhaustion due to your activities for 10-11 hours of the day five days a week? I'd love to know because I miss reviewing!
Now that you know what's going on in my world, what's going on in your world?
