Monday routine update…

I did make it up, out and to the gym before 7am. That by itself is a miracle. I did 4 miles on the elliptical and .5 miles on the treadmill. It was all supposed to be running but my knee felt sore. Maybe from the race effort. So I thought better on the elliptical than not at all.

Anyway, I did my vitamins in the car and then made my coffee when I got home. I would have been right on track if I had gotten straight into the shower. But I didn’t. I messed around with work for about a half hour.

I have already learned that blogging at the gym won’t work. So, do I draft the night before and schedule the post? Or add it to the routine when I get home?

It’s progress.

Regarding: Routines

I do well with a schedule. I do well with routines. I LOVE calendars. And lists. But that is a different post.

Working from home gives me the freedom to schedule my day in unusual ways. But my morning routine is no longer working for me.

I would really to rearrange it all. Be more efficient and shorten the overall duration of the morning routine. This make take some trial and error. But the most important step is, NONE OF IT WORKS WITHOUT THIS, is to get up and immediately get dressed and go to the gym. Maybe I could take my vitamins in the car on the way home? Maybe I could drink my coffee while getting cleaned up? Could I blog and surf while at the gym???

This will also alter my evening routine as I prep everything in advance to help me get out the door. Get my gym clothes ready. Get my vitamins ready. Charge the iPad.

Focus on one thing. Get up and go immediately to the gym. Get that step done and the rest will work itself in where it makes sense. As I type this, it is Sunday evening and I am ready to go in the morning. I will schedule this to post around 5am and then I will give you an update later in the morning. Fingers crossed.
