It is time

I'm still in the adjusting phase of returning to school. I come home and some nights I'm really, really tired, other nights I have energy. Adjusting. I have been keeping my eating under control though. 10-grain cereal for breakfast, salad with a meat for lunch, going light on dinner, I'm pleased with my eating. I don't feel stuffed or bloated, I just feel satisfied. So I'm really good on the eating front. Now the exercise.

If I get everything ready the night before: clothes, lunch, bird food; I have extra time in the morning. What if I take that extra few minutes and do a workout? It doesn't have to be an elaborate, hour long workout, it can be a 15 minute kick-ass workout. Basically just a strength workout since I'm riding my bike everyday. What will happen is that I will do that for a few weeks and I'll want to do more. Once I have the desire to do mo…
