Tonight I went out to watch a comedy gig and then I took a friend home and came back to my house to get weighed and watch Doctor Who.
What I'd like to be doing now is reading the book I started at lunchtime, write a couple of songs, record the backing track for a song, maybe watch some of my DVD mountain and possibly eat something that tastes delicious. None of this is going to happen.
What I should be doing is another dimension of different. I should have weighed myself at the peak weight I'd reached. Then I'd know how much more than 9 pounds I've lost in weight. I can measure that my trousers fit me again, so that's a simple measurement. That measures in at "yes".
What I should also be doing right now is packing for the long weekend. I haven't done that yet. I will in a minute.
I should also be sleeping.
And painting my house.
Or paying someone else to do it.
There's always something else you should be doing in life. I guess that's a conflict we adults have to face.
