It was a good break and I really enjoyed myself. But do I have to go back?????? No, I'm ready. I can only sit around for so long before I start to lose my mind. So it is time to get back to work and back to schedule. I've done far too much sitting on my butt. But I have a couple of things to work through here.
Dissertation work, when to do it. I need to devote more time to this. I. Must. The thing is, if I plan to do it at night, I'm no good then. I am tired and just do not have the mental energy to do it. So I'm thinking about doing it in the morning. I always do good work in the morning when my mind is fresh. What if I got up at 4 am and dove right into working on it? I could get a solid 30-45 minutes on it every day. It's kind of like the theory of exercise, do it early and get it out of the way. I'm always fresh in the morning and do some of my best work when I first work up, so why not take advantage of that? I had this idea that I wanted to do yoga at that time, but in many ways, I think this is more important. If I spend tomorrow working on it and developing a to do list for the week, I can then work on something every morning when I get up. I can also do things that do not require lots of brain power in the evenings, like search for articles. I'm going to give it a try this week and see how it works. I like this idea and think it will work.
Health and fitness. I joined a nutrition challenge today. These have always worked well for me in the past just because I have some guidelines and someone to be accountable to. I also ordered some supplements. Not sure about that yet, but I decided to jump in with both feet. I've let doubt and indecision waste too much of my time. I trust the Crossfit people and decided to take their word for it and try the supplements. I'm not happy I spent $200 but I guess my health is worth it. So now I just need to get the working out routine down. I was going to start with Crossfit on Monday afternoon, but we have someone coming to give us a quote on a security screen door. So that might not work so well. Damn. Oh well, I can do my yoga or walk on the treadmill after. The point is I have to do something.
Okay, it is getting late and I need to get into bed. More tomorrow.
