Ever have one of those days that's just a complete write-off?

Yesterday was a bad, bad day. I was sleep-deprived, in the middle of caffeine withdrawal (yes, the headache hit again in the afternoon), and completely unmotivated to do anything at all. I didn't get out of bed till after 10:00 and was still in my pjs at 12:30.

I spent a couple of hours lolling on the couch watching a DVD, ate some things that I rather regret now because - yuk - my digestive system is still rebelling, and finally got off my butt around 4:30pm to begin organising dinner, return movies and pick up some bacon for the hamburgers-with-the-lot I'd promised the kids. I also ended up with a tub of ice cream The Baby conned me into buying. Why do I take him to the supermarket with me?

I did no exercise and ate about 1000 Calories too much (guessing here, because who logs ice cream and M & Ms?) and the only decent food that passed my lips was dinner. I achieved zero out of all the things I'd intended to do, and was grumpy and sad all day.

When I do a bad day, I do it extremely well. I wonder if there's an award for that?

But today's a new day. I'm still sleep-deprived, still feeling the caffeine blahs, but I'm going to push myself to do a few things anyway. Motivation is distinctly absent, but I'm not allowing that to stop me. As Liz said to me last night: Action precedes motivation (or something like that anyway).

In other words, I'm just doing it.

God, if you are going through caffeine withdrawal and you didn't actually commit murder, you are doing fine :)
