Just about anything,

Which activities make you lose track of time?

The one unhealthy thing that I can lose a lot of time doing is working out. I spend way too much time in the gym and often my time there can reach into the quadruples and quintuples of hours. Okay, I am terrible at math don’t listen to that. Or do. Whatever.

My longest day spent in the gym working out was probably the day that I packed a day bag that included breakfast, pre-workout, lunch, post-workout, protein shakes, more food, two pairs of shoes, a towel, a bathing suit, a bunch of lifting gear and straps, whatever my service dog needed at the time, and probably a raccoon. I was there for about twelve hours. Yeah… healthy.

The other things that I can lose a bunch of time doing are writing, drawing, painting, reading, playing endless amounts of Breath of the Wild with no hope of ever getting full completion because ADHD, ya know… side quests galore.

oh… right. What can I waste my time doing?

Other than those relatively vanilla activities, I am also a fan of just sitting outside and listening to music, going for a long-ass hike through the coniferous hillsides of the armpit of earth. I spend way too much time learning useless facts about literally everything probably utilizing more time than I really want to admit.

On a more serious note, I spend at least 2/3 of my day writing, commenting, researching, and planning my posts and books so that I can hopefully turn this waste of time into an EMPIRE. Jokes. Maybe do something I love for a living – that is a dream – come true.

What about you? How do you spend the finite currency of time?

One response to “Just about anything,”

  1. I used to be that way in the gym too…but that’s because I felt I needed to punish myself whenever I ate unhealthy. Now I’m better at tracking the time, and I workout mostly to be healthier and stronger. I still eat relatively good, but I do enjoy Long Islands and wine, and sweet stuff. But the gym is a safe haven, in a way. You go there specifically for yourself, and no one else can take that away.
