Procrastinator Michelle! S6day17

I am posting right now because I am procrastinating…I have to work on some tax stuff that I’ve been putting off for MONTHS, but with taxes due at the end of May, I guess I MUST get them done soon 😥

Procrastination is an art form in my opinion…I do things when the HAVE TO be done, not a moment sooner~ it’s my way to manage my time, lol!! I use this skill for so many things besides taxes. A couple of of my favorite applications for procrastination is Dishes, Laundry, Shaving, and Bills. Why bother doing a few dishes??? I need to wait until the entire counter is covered and I have plenty to easily fit into the dish washer. That way I don’t waste time trying to find the perfect dishes to fit.

Why do 1 load of laundry?? I wait until I can do at least 6 at once. I do all the washing and drying~ then later I fold all 6 loads~ the I put all the clothes away at the same time. Doing 6 loads at once saves time!

Procrastinating works…but NOT for working out!!! CONSISTENCY works for diet, exercise and for getting BUFF!!!

Weird sore muscles


Okay~ so yesterday…I did Dead lifts with 155# on the bar…now I’ve done them in the past, but not consistently this heavy–also my lifting gloves were missing so I used straps instead.

Well this morning I woke up with super sore muscles —not in my booty or legs, but in my hands!! Specifically, the muscle between my thumbs and index finger–OUCH, I can barly type.

So needless to say today was not the most perfect day to lift BACK/Bi’s/ Shoulders—my hands were killing me the whole time, lol
