Back to School

Posted by on Sep 3, 2014 in Terry's Blog | 0 comments

It’s been a long time since I attended public school, but the timetable is burned into my psyche. The day after Labour Day is the start of a new year at a new grade. Ironically, if I was still in school, this year would be an exception, due to the ruthless union busting tactics in play by our provincial government, but I digress. Also, since my workweek starts on a Tuesday, instead of a Monday, I had an extra day before reality started to close in on me.

This morning, as I woke to my alarm, I heard the sound of our furnace kicking into gear. It is the first time in months. Summer is over. Winter is coming. I have a lot of fear, as I tend to put pressure on myself. What are my goals for this upcoming month?

Back on my 4-hour body plan. I am dreading my first workout, but I know it will feel good to get back up to speed. I just had my first yummy bean/protein shake in months this morning. I am also trying to incorporate a rigid routine that so far includes making shakes and programing the coffee maker before I go to bed at night. Also, I aim to be ready for bed by 9PM. A good day starts the night before. It does feel good to wake up and have things ready for me, including a fresh pot of coffee. Other goals include completing my application for a UK passport, and re-jigging my banking practices.

Stay tuned kids, as I also aim to resume the daily blog, and the weekly WAYGD podcast.

A Good Start

Posted by on Aug 8, 2014 in Terry's Blog | 0 comments

If you really want to start your day right, you gotta get on it before you go to bed.

Today I started the day making coffee and breakfast shakes in a kitchen full of dirty dishes.

Yesterday I started the day in a clean kitchen with a pre-programmed pot of coffee brewing, and my breakfast shake waiting for me in the fridge. When it was time to get dressed, my clothes were ready for me. I had lots of time to blog, and drink coffee.

Today I have some slack because I still don’t snooze, and I am taking the car to work, but I lost a lot of time prepping coffee and shakes, and now I have to go digging for a wardrobe. No time for a leisurely Joe. It’s post the blog and go.

3 wins for the day.

  1. I didn’t snooze: when my alarm goes off, I get up and get at it; mind you I woke up before my alarm, and reset it for 15 minutes later, but I didn’t hit the snooze button. This is one good habit I have managed to retain all summer, despite my diet and exercise plan falling by the wayside.
  2. I am blogging in the morning for the 3rd time in a row – much better than having to write something before I can go to bed.
  3. I did my 5 minute cold shower. I considered skipping it, but I feel so good when I actually do it. It also makes me more comfortable throughout the day, as my metabolism is much better at regulating my internal temperature.

Gotta go – have a swell day, kids.
