I have just started my 5th week of rolling out of bed at 4AM to get in my first of two workouts per day at least 4 days per week. So far Friday, Saturday and Sunday have been single workouts and what I would consider more rest day workouts. I can thank the pandemic for this, otherwise I wouldn’t have time to do this if I was still going into the office to work every day. This is something that I am thankful for, though it is rough to get up that early I feel good the rest of the day for it.
I have also changed up my eating a little, for over a week I did away with intermittent fasting altogether, going back to eating breakfast for that time period. Starting with this week I have decided that I will eat breakfast on Monday, Wednesday & Friday while intermittent fasting the rest of the week so I am mixing it up some. My plan is to do this as well for two weeks at a minimum and then likely returning to intermittent fasting all week long again and doing that for two weeks and repeating the same thing as above continuously to mix things up.
Still doing lousy trying to get writing done. This is more because I am busy doing things for the full-time job, which I should do, but I had a desire to take a break and get a blog post done and what not. The writing bit is something I really have to get going as we need to get some extra money in our bank account and though it might not add lots of extra money, it will add some. It is that overall fear of failure that keeps me from getting that done. But working to get past that for sure. Getting closer to that point. I feel that the reality will be just gotta sit down and write the first short and publish it and that will get me past it. That is the goal this week, force myself to get past it. I am also trying to parlay my day job into getting some additional proofreading and editing work so I can add some money that way.
The other thing I need to do is work towards getting my personal training business in an online form up and running again and do something with it so that the time I spent getting re-certified is not wasted. I put that to the side to work on some other things, which aren’t really getting much traction at this point.
We are expecting a tropical system heading this way which should roll in sometime tomorrow, this was the one that hit Florida on Sunday, so right now they are talking up to 70 plus mile an hour gusts. It should be interesting to see what happens with that. It is pretty much only the second tropical system that has hit this area since we moved here 9 years ago. The storm is here, and just dumping what seems like a significant amount of rain, the wind hasn’t picked up too much. We will see how this goes throughout the day today.
All for now, maybe more again tomorrow.
