A new routine

Posted: November 3, 2009 in Health/Fitness, photography, Pimp, work

princessI got to work at 7:00 this morning and I didn’t die. Not that I expected to, really, but getting up an hour earlier than has been my routine for the past, well, YEARS – and in the DARK, even – was less painful than I thought it was going to be.

I switched my schedule at AcronymCo around so that I’m working 7:00 to 4:00 instead of 8:00 to 5:00. Getting home at 4:00 is SUPPOSED to motivate me to work out. See, I can’t get up an hour earlier just to immediately jump into exercise (I. Just. Can’t.), but I CAN get up an hour earlier in order to get to work an hour earlier and then LEAVE an hour earlier so that I can get home and exercise before the evening whirlwind of dinner/night chores/TV. That one hour window from 4:00 to 5:00 is now sacred unto exercise.

Uh, yeah. We’ll see, anyway.

I drained, cleaned, and re-filled the hot tub yesterday – it’s heating as we speak and I shall use its lure to further motivate me to make my muscles achy with cardio and weight training.


I leave you with some straight pimpin’ – more of my photography articles were published at various on-line locations. I did a roll-up of those articles over at BMP if you’re intersted in reading them.

OH, and I got the tracking info for my lens – it’ll be here Friday! WOOT!

    Your work schedule adjustment would work FAR BETTER for me than working out in the morning, for the same reason. I have a hard hard time getting out of bed to exercise, but getting to work, that I can do. And exercise later.

    [insert “getting exercise without getting out of bed” joke here]

    Once it turned cold (well, cool) and dark in the morning, there went my willpower to get out of bed – it happens every year. I’m in serious need of getting back on the exercise horse. Seriously.

      I can stand, 3/4 asleep, in the shower when it’s dark in the morning. I CANNOT paddle away on the elliptical or lift weights while 3/4 asleep.

    My muscles are sore and achy from raking leaves (lower back) and bad sitting posture (shoulder/right arm) – can I come soak in your tub? 🙂
