This has been a really interesting week. I am trying to get myself used to a new routine, and am finding it a little bit more difficult than I thought I would. I often forget just how much a creature of habit I am!
Last week, I was able to work out for 30 minutes every day for lunch. This week, I decided to try going to work an hour early and working out for 30 minutes before work. In theory, it was a good idea. In practice, it was hard to do. First of all, it was hard for me to actually get to work an hour early. I ended up getting to work at 8:15am every morning. I had to adjust my workout time down accordingly, and ended up with a 25-minute workout each day. It was an amusing dose of disorganization.
In the end, though, I actually enjoyed working out in the morning. I am still trying to figure out my body; there are things it does that I don’t understand. For example, after a morning workout, I get a nice little boost of energy that helps me get through the day. When I work out at lunch, though, the opposite happens. After the workout, I am drained, and barely have enough energy to get through the rest of the day. I think this is all pretty strange.
I think I am going to try to continue working out in the morning. It means I have to be more disciplined; I have to get myself to get out of our front door by 7:40 in the morning. That’ll be the real tough part.
I’m still not eating all that well. I am starting to make better choices about what I eat (especially for lunch), but I am still not where I need to be. I think I really need to figure out a structured diet for myself. It should be easy, now that I know when my body likes to eat. I just need to actually work on this.
I hope your week has been good!
