Yesterday, I did the unthinkable.
I deleted myself from Facebook. Only temporarily, but I did it nonetheless.
And it felt good.
I got more done today than I have in years. I wasn't stopping to "quickly" check Facebook while doing chores. I didn't sit on the couch for an hour after waking up to "catch up" on my news feed from the night before. I mean, I have 400 friends (er, something like that) and they all post several times a day. I was spending more time "catching up" on my friends lives than devoting the same time into my own.
So, right now, the only way to get a hold of me is to text or call. Ol' fashion style. And I like it.
With my new free time today, I spent an hour printing worksheets at the library, I cooked a fabulous dinner, organized my kid's craft station, and did not only ONE but TWO workouts at the gym.
Zumba kicked my butt and then my friend and I did our Couch to 5k training. I ran another 2 miles and today's pace was picked up to a 90 second running, 2 minute walking interval. And let me tell you -- 90 seconds of running is WAY different than 60 seconds. I cheered my way through it and almost gave up, but I kept thinking about how I needed to do this to run that Half Marathon because SOMEHOW I have to run for over 3 hours straight. Which is terrifying right now.
Maybe I'll add another run to my daily routine now that I am not attached to social media for a while. Okay, maybe not.
Here's to new found freedom!!
