    Default Why does it take so much energy?

    why does getting clean take so much energy?? I just took a 10 minute shower and now I'm sitting in my robe trying to get the energy needed to get dressed.

    What do you wish didn't take so much energy right now?

    AHAHAHHA i can only imagine the responses you will get from that question

    For me:

    1) getting out of bed
    2) getting off of the couch
    3) standing up from any sitting/laying position (OUCH)
    4) walking up and down stairs


    Pretty much everything that requires me to move. lol your shower probably relaxed you more, so go take a nice nap

    sadly, the 2 year old does not feel that a nap is necessary.

    Exercising! I actually have been really good lately and I feel great on days I do exercise (got a workout in this morning) but actually starting takes a lot of motivation these days.

    Things like showers exhaust me too. I do not remember being this tired at this point with DS. I thought it would be fun to take the stairs at work the other day. Not so much!

    OMG I wish I could get up enough energy to clean everything the way I want it. I always get about halfway done with something and have to take a break. I'm also really tired of the pain I'm having rolling over or getting out of bed!! My hips shift and grind when I'm rolling over and It hurts enough to take my breath away for a second.

    I am SO thankful that there is an elevator in our building. Going up stairs is so hard. Our bedroom and bathroom are in the lower level of our loft and I hate having to come back up after doing anything down there. I have to sit on the couch and catch my breath before I can do anything else.

    the stairs are the worst!!!! I've started keeping 2 areas for important things, one upstairs and one downstairs because i will literally have to sit down after going upstairs to get enough air! that and playing with my ds has become really hard. He wants to go run around the backyard and after about 10 minutes i have to sit down

    I agree with the stairs one...going up/down stairs is the worst. We don't have any stairs here but my parents do and they were brutal.

    I feel like it takes me tons of energy to do anything these days, but especially cleaning...my house is so filthy right now, but I just don't have the energy. My kitchen is pretty clean but my floors are in serious need of being cleaned.
