Mostly normal start time this morning. There was the weekly CCOD (conference call of DOOM) first thing then off I went.
30 minutes of exercise w/language program
244 second morning meditation
350 calorie restriction.
213 words on WIP
489 second evening meditation
30 min inking with a brush
Refusing homemade bread still steaming from the oven with the butter melted right in was my big win for the day (not enough calories left).
So I decided to head into work an hour and a half early. Don’t hate me for my jobs flexibility, the 24/7 on call can bite me bad. Like the time I got paged in just after paying for movie tickets for the whole family.
Well back to today:
235 seconds meditation at Noon (in my truck in a parking lot)
794 calorie restriction. A mini Pringles can is 375 calories (2.5 servings)
209 words written on the WIP
and 423 seconds meditation just now,
The exercise is missing. That’s the trip I did. The early start derailed the normal before work walk but when I got home. . . you get the idea insert various excuses here. So I need to walk in the morning to start the day not end my day with it.
First things first,
30 minutes on the treadmill with more of the language program.
Morning Meditation of 274 sec (with music since the kids were being, well, kids)
8-ish hours for torturous servitude…er work.
274 words on the WIP.
766 calorie restriction today. (Wow those rectangular blueberry danishes are 500+ calories!)
282 seconds for evening meditation (with music, music from now on I think)
and more time inking with a brush on smooth bristol with my diy lightbox.
Second things, 2 hour late start for the kids this morning. A near miss for the mechanic with the minivan getting soaked in a massive puddle when a plow went by going the other way. Luckily it started after drying for a bit. Then 8 hours out and about in the rain, I mean ice, no rain, no ice. Hey its 50 out. Woops now it’s 30 going over the mountain on the way home.
So I’ll feel the guilt if I miss.
30 minutes on the treadmill today, while listening to an audio language program.
435 seconds of meditation in the morning.
255 words on my current work.
255 seconds of evening meditation.
935 calorie restriction today.
Also 30 minutes of inking practice with a #2 brush.
Well there hasn’t been anything here for months. There are a thousand and one excuses I could make. The bottom line is that I did not make it a priority. I did other things, (video games, reading, TV) instead of writing or blogging at all. It’s a new year so there have to be new priorities.
200 minutes of exercise a week (or more)
200 words a day of fiction writing
200 calories less a day of food
200 seconds of meditation twice a day
I think I’ll call this my 2×4 plan for improvement after the lumber I usually need to be hit with 😉
I’ll blog more frequently too.
