Procrastinators of the World Unite- Napa Fitness Boot Camp

Man the funniest thing about putting things off:

1.) Usually the task is WAY easier than we have it built up to be in our crazy heads. Right? Usually when we finally make it a priority to accomplish that one thing we have been putting off, it is like, easy… it doesn’t take long and you almost feel kind of lame for not doing it sooner, huh? Like starting a fitness program.

2.) You really feel like you accomplished something when you get ‘it’ done. Like filing a stack of papers, it takes about 15 minutes, however when you are done you feel like you remodeled the house. You get an instant ‘I am so proud of myself’ moment’

3.) We all do it. So why? Interestingly enough we talked about this at RKC as well. No matter what our bodies ALWAYS take the path of least resistance.

There is a delightful story that goes along with this. We have flourescent lights in our garage. You may or may not know this but people in the 21st century actually use lights to see what they are doing! Genius invention! However, one by one over the last 5 or 6 years each one of our flourescent light tubes in the garage (16 total) has burned out. For the last 4 or so months we have had about 2 of them hanging on by a thread, sort of flickering and honestly I couldn’t see to do the laundry unless it was day time and I opened the side door and it was a sunny day. How pathetic is that?

So we brought in a spot light, a small one that we had used for light at one time in the Sonoma Boot Camp, that burnt out as well mainly because it wasn’t on a light switch and we had to walk ALLLLLL the way across the garage to turn it off and of course it rarely got turned off. So once that was gone we put another similar spot light in its place, yep, you guessed it, it burned out. So for a short while we have pretty much not been able to use our garage past sun down.

Why didn’t we just go over to the Home Depot and buy some flourescent tubes and put them up? Well somewhere between crazy and reality we must have thought it was going to cost like $14,000 for light bulbs and take 4 men 3 months to put them up and that seemed WAY to hard so we just never did it….
Well would you?

So today we were driving home from the 9 am Napa boot camp and Jeff said, ‘what do you want to do’ and I said I would like to go to the Home Depot and get some light bulbs for our garage. Keep in mind this wasn’t a special day, just Wednesday. And we had not received a $14,000 windfall or decide on 3 month vacation to install lights. We finally reached that point where we were like, okay, I get it, it is time, let’s just go buy some lights… Do Not pass GO just go straight to the Home Depot.

We bought the lights, 20 bulbs, $43.07, whoooaaa! We got home and we had 15 minutes before we had to pick up the girls from school……. it took us 12 minutes to replace all of them.



12 minutes?

And of course we just stood there with enormous grins on our face because we had REALLY accomplished something! It was a real self-esteem booster.

What are you putting off? Unfinished business? Is there something you know you need to do and keep telling yourself you need to do but just aren’t doing it?

It is probably simple if you write it down and put it on the top of your things to do?

You will feel really good once it is done!

Share it with us below in the comments, we would love to hear from you. Maybe we can help.

See you soon!
Tiffany and Jeff
