I’m Not Good at Relaxing

Hi humans!

So today I woke up feeling a bit better than yesterday, however my neck still hurts pretty dang bad. Yesterday I napped for about four hours, woke up and ate dinner and ice cream, then went to bed at 8:30 and slept until 9 this morning. That’s more sleep than I get in a normal week! Those muscle relaxers are killing me. I’m still tired!

Today I had a bunch of things to get done and I’m seriously dragging. I still feel tired even though I haven’t taken the relaxers at all yet, and I’m finding it hard to motivate myself to drive around and do all the things I need to do today. Plus, I’m kind of terrified of crashing since I can’t really turn my head. Yikes.

Anyway, I’m really bad at not doing anything. I just want to do things. Work, go to the gym, clean my house, walk the dogs, etc. but I am in lots of pain and so groggy, so none of those are viable. I’m itching to go to the gym, but a few days of rest won’t kill me. I hope.

I have been avoiding taking the muscle relaxers until a little later just because I can’t drive while on them, but I assume that once I take them I’ll be passing out yet again. I have the weirdest dreams when I take those things.

Anyway, sorry this post is not very eloquent or coherent but that’s basically my life right now. Not eloquent and incoherent.

I hope my neck gets better soon, because the pool opens next week and I have to be good to teach lessons and guard! I also am behind on my work because I’ve been too tired to email people back and write my articles. Ugh, being injured sucks! Poor me. Boo hoo. Okay, I’m done.

Talk to me:

Do you hate relaxing as much as I do?

  1. hey love, I’m sorry you have to go through this. think of it as your body’s way of making you take a vacation. Watch some netflix — Parks and Rec is a great show. Or Friends—classic.


  2. As hard as it is, relaxing is what you NEED to be doing. It’s only doing your body good and since you said you have such a hard time gaining weight, this is your best oppurtunity to rest, heal, and do what you need to do! Going to the gym is going to counteract it and make it harder. I know you can do it girl, just take a lot of mental control. Watch movies and blog!


  3. Hey friend. Join the club, but it’s rewarding, and it’s exactly what you need to be doing. So… 🙂 Watch some ‘Amazing Race’, eat some icecream, read a book, start a journal, look at pinterest and find inspiring quotes. And sleep. Or go outside and stare at the sky. 🙂 Talk to God. 🙂


  4. I know relaxing can be difficult, but it’s what you need right now!
    I would recommend Netflixing, snacking (don’t neglect your SBWA!!), napping, reading, blogging, arts/crafts, online shopping, taking Buzzfeed quizzes, watching YouTube videos, baking goodies, or, you know, writing a lengthy novel.
    Just take it easy, love. You’ll be back to your hectic routine in no time!


  5. I am not very good at relaxing either, but once I commit to a nap, I will not get up for at least an hour. What is your job?
