It is 4:32 AM and I have been up for a bit. Not by a lack of ability to sleep, but rather by a desire to keep up a new behavior.
Although I think there is a wake-up time that exceeds the ability to adjust to it, 4AM is probably not that time.
I won’t go to the gym today, instead I’ll try to do some creative work with Tom. My goal is to link his new blog to his social media sites, as I have done with this experimental one. I’m hoping that things will go smoothly, and I like the fact that I’m challenging myself by learning some new technical skills.
Today my goal is to challenge myself and push myself to learn while still enjoying the process. Today, I feel that goal is a possibility.
On Fridays I drive to Rockford, on a trip that takes just shy of and hour and a half. If I had to do this trek on a daily basis it would be difficult, but once a week isn’t too bad.
As an introvert I enjoy my alone time, and I’ll often make the trip in silence. Thinking and rethinking. Coming up with solutions for problems that don’t really exist. Focusing on the unimportant and (more rarely) the important.
For me, this is relaxing and recharging. The 90 minute commute turned into a positive, instead of a negative. Today it is my goal to realize that, like a coin, most life events have two sides. My desire is to focus on the positive side, instead of dwelling on the negative side.
I have discovered that I need to eat something before I go to the gym. Otherwise, it is low sugar and shaky time for me. But I need something that is portable and quick.
So far I have tried a peanut butter and banana sandwich and a small bag of nuts. Both worked OK, but variety is the spice of life. Today’s experiment are these muffins. Whole wheat, banana/blueberry, no additional sugar. About 190 calories for 1/12 of the recipe and they taste pretty good. I added a little salt and vanilla and was liberal with the blueberries.
I’ll try one out tomorrow.
My last attempt to figure out this WordPress/Social media thing. Please Ignore.
Trying out new ideas with friends can keep your thinking flowing.
Life is full of simple pleasures. A spring day, my son and new running shoes.
