I am trying to do too many things at once

I don’t know why I am writing the post. Maybe it’s so I can look back in the future, when my life is easier and tell myself it was all worth it.

Or maybe I’ll just look back and wonder why I was complaining so much because in the future I’ll just be adding even more things to my ‘things I must do’ list.

I love that I’m motivated and that I’m always wanting to better myself. I love that I always feel inspired and as soon as one thing is done, I want to do something bigger and better. I love how I’m stubborn and won’t give up even when it’s hard.

But it would be nice to spend a day doing absolutely nothing.

Faff about watching trashy TV and playing Spyro. Talking to friends on WhatsApp, scrolling through social media and just chilling out. I can’t remember the last time I had a day like that. Probably Christmas day.

Apart from that, I’m always busy apart from when are doing things. And to do those things, I have to work even harder the week before to get things done before I can have a day off. Yesh.

I’m feeling it all at the moment. I just wanted to write down a few things that I am doing. I wish I could say I was going to stop some of these things but I don’t want to. I want to do everything. Apart from maybe work – I don’t want to do that. So, here’s all the things I’m trying to fit in all at once.


I work 5 days a week for 9 hours at a time. I also commute from York to Leeds which can mean I spend between 1 hour 30 minutes – 2 hours 15 minutes a day in the car. Traffic dependent. Obviously, I wish I could cut this out but I need the money. Sad.


I gym 5 – 6 times a week. Usually about an hour each time, longer on weekends. I cannot tell you how amazing working out makes me feel. I love it and wish I could spend longer than an hour in the gym but I usually have to rush off to work. 3 days a week I get up at 5:30 am to get my workout in before my 9 am start.


Daily blogging on here, and trying (but failing) to blog 2 times a week on my fitness blog. I usually just manage 1 post a week over there.


This is something that is starting to slip. I’m not having as much time to make graphics for posts, or schedule pins using tribes. I’m not having the time to go on and manually pin a few times a day and my views are dropping. Terrible.


I’m still trying to do this CIM in a professional marketing course. The first exam is in April. Send help.

Create a new website.

I’m helping an old university friend create a website for her non-profit community project. It’s all about empowering young people, equality, diversity and I love their cause so much. We came to the decision when we were having a bit of a chat (one of those ‘how are things, what have you been up to’ chats you have with university friends). I was talking to her about wanting to go into digital marketing and she told me about her project that she needed some help with and decided we could help each other out. I could set up her website and give guidance on social media/content in exchange for me being able to use it was ‘experience’ and as part of my portfolio and CV. We’ve still some work to do but the basics of the website are done now (the hard part!) and I can’t wait to help her fill it with content and get launched.

Buy a new house. 

It’s exciting and fun, but also stressful as I constantly feel like the whole thing could fall through at any moment. We’ve applied for a mortgage and are waiting for a reply. When we do get this sorted, we’ll be waiting for a moving date then spending time packing, sorting, cleaning and stressing. Can’t wait.

I also want to spend hours and hours looking at things to buy and put in my new house.


I’m not very flexible and it’s something I’m trying to sort out. I now spend about 30 minutes each evening on my bedroom floor stretching my legs out. It’s working through!


I basically just want to quit everything and just look at photos of my cat.

What are you got on your plate?


  1. I completely understand this post. I’m also someone who tries to do everything all at once and sometimes it can feel like I trying to keep spinning plates from falling. I’m slowly realising though that it’s better to do a few things well than a lot of things ok.

  2. Wow!!! You are certainly doing a lot. I also feel like I have so many things on my plate and I’m tired all the time. I’ve told my husband that I wish I could have 3 days when I don’t have anything to do, so that I can do EVERYTHING. I have let a lot of things slip by, and it bugs me.

    Coincidentally, I just put up a post about Life’s Balancing Act, and how we can’t do everything at the same time. Whatever we’re focusing on is taking away from something else we could be doing. But that’s just life. It’s all about priorities.

  3. Well if nothing else the post should show you that your making the most out of life. Fab news about the house look forward to post of making a home. The hard work will pay off I promise nothing that is worth having comes easily. But that said don’t burn yourself out x

  4. You are doing ALOT! I have a busy life but when I can (i.e. this weekend), I don’t do much! Today, I have done washing, a bit of tidying and then read and gone to town and been on here! It’s lazy but I like it!
