Summer has begun

May 16th was the last day of school. I have been on serious break since then. Serious. The first weekend I didn't do much of anything. Watched some TV and that was about it. This week has been slightly better, but not a whole lot. I've started a couple of things but not followed through, just haven't been motivated to push myself. I've been walking a bit. Not as much as I'd hoped to, but some. I have not worked out much at all. But I was also allowing myself time to kind of decompress from the school year. But things have to change. Not only did I get a scholarship to take a class this summer, actually 2 classes, but I also have things that really, really, really need my attention. So, rest is over, it's time to kick it into gear.

I'm going to set a kind of schedule for myself. Walking in the mornings before it gets hot, then working out in the afternoons before dinner time. Nothing I do is so strenuous that I can't do it in my bathing suit, especially since my bathing suit is a sports bra top. So walking and workouts will happen every single day. Meditation will also happen. I've been slacking on that, need to get it back into the rotation. Need to set a schedule so these things happen on the regular. Something like this:

  • get up/coffee/meditate
  • walk
  • shower
  • walk dogs
  • breakfast
  • work, work, work
  • lunch/pool/read
  • work, work, work
  • workout
  • work Mavy
  • dinner/pool/relax
  • bed
Something along those lines. There will be days where we need to run errands and I will fit that in either in the morning or afternoon. There will also be days where I will consume alcohol and that pretty much eliminates productivity for the rest of the day. I'm okay with that, but no more than 2 times per week but preferably only once. That's pretty reasonable. If I get up at 4:30 I have lots and lots of time to do everything. 

So there is my summer plan. I need to have a schedule and a focus or else absolutely nothing will get done. So this is good.

Time for a change?

 So I started this little business about 1.5 years ago. The idea was to make a little side business that would keep me busy when I retire. I...
