Every Choice is Worth Your While

Any Indigo Girls fans out there? Up on the watershed ...

Anyway, hi!

My week is going pretty well so far. It helps that I'm busy during the week, so I try to have very structured days. Today, for instance, I got up, packed the hubs and my foods for the day, drove with him to his work then walked to my work, then spent an hour in the gym. By then, it's already 11am and I haven't had breakfast yet. Fortunately, I packed my favorite breakfast salad.

Tonight is Tuesday, so ... karaoke night! I need some new ideas, what should I sing?

I'm spending the day at work, but I'm not teaching, so I'm trying to get stuff done. I fixed up some online things and I learned a little bit about how our courses are coded into the computer system. Now, I'm blogging. I like to mix up real work and other things throughout my day, thus, I do this at work, but I do work at home. The benefits of an academic life: no 9-5. The downfall of an academic life? No 9-5. I still love it!

Okay: how am I doing?

Food: oh so much better in the past few days. Today especially. I think I've also just discovered that I can add my calcium and fish oil (both liquids) to my freggie smoothie which is way better than trying to take them separately! It just means I'll need to be certain to have smoothies, but I like them, so I think I can handle that. Today's included spinach, carrots, strawberries, blueberries, and peaches.

Exercise: I rock. Today, I accidentally put 35lb weights on a bar instead of 25lb ones, which only brought my intended total up 5lbs, so I went with it. This means my squat and deadlift are now up to 115lb. I'll be in the gym again Friday, but I have to not push too hard because the 5K is on Sunday. I should be running Wed, and Sat. I need to get some yoga in there too, so I'll aim for Thursday.

Sleep: Better, but not better enough. Still, I'll take better. That reminds me, I need a nap. I'm on that post-blog. Tomorow, I'll do EVEN BETTER! At some point I should explain my whole sleep thing here. Remind me I said that.

Other: I'm still blogging, right, so that's good. I'm also doing some music writing, some chilling out. The only thing I want to do that is lacking is playing Go. it's a strategy game that I play online. Maybe I'll finally do that again tonight. I also need to clean my house, but I need the husband's help in that, so it will likely be partly done tomorrow when we're both off and partly done Saturday before Sunday's get-together post-race.

Okay, on to nap and make up course stuff!

Onward and upward!

    Glad to hear you're doing a little better on food and sleep. Keep doing what you're doing - you're making a good dent in the remaining bad habits you have (no mention of overdoing a certain food you've mentioned before!).
