Tighten Up

October 15th, 2006 at 12:55 pm

Okay, things in general I want to tighten up and/or focus on:

Use the excercise bike and walk to work. This saves money and also helps with my health; I could stand to use 30 pounds (I lost 20 then gained four on vacation so Im at 180). Concrete steps to do this: Offer use of my car to My Guy-he benefits, and I am forced to walk. Also, if I want to play a computer game, earn it by using the exercise bike.

Continue to eat breakfast everyday and pack a good lunch and snacks. Im mostly doing this; I could just get back in the pre-vacation habit of preparing more stuff, like hard boiling eggs or making more muffins and such.

Continue to de-clutter and organize. Ive need the furniture I already mentioned, eventually. Weve got the pantry under control and are using some stuff up. I need to take a bag of books to the bookstore for exchange credit, and just start some boxes for the thrift store.

I used to have a routine that worked for me kinda; I got home around 4:15, and between 4:15 and 5 Id putter, and from 5-6 Id watch Oprah and do the exercise bike and putter, then Id be off the clock at 6, still plenty early to enjoy the evening. Not only did going on vacation and then getting sick blow my developed habit, but they moved Oprah to a different time. Its on two times a day instead of onebut they are the wrong times! Believe me, I can see how sad it is to have a routine built around the Oprah show; I dont defend it and am not proud. However it was a routine that was productive for me. Its a matter of developing a new one.

    I understand that, I walk on my treadmill and watch Jerry Springer and Maury Povich in the morning.

    Oh man. Last week I had to look away from Jerry Springer when I was on the elliptical machine at the gym. CNN wasn't any better.

    Good luck - it always seems like the numbers on the scale are the last thing to move. Congrats on the 16!
