Daily Update: I Hope This is Only a Phase
I set my alarm for 6. I reset it for 7. I’m just now waking up. My body is tired. My brain is tired. I ache.
Don’t get me wrong. I know what I’m doing for my body and my brain is the right thing. As far as I know this will get easier. It’s been a very long time since I pushed my body and my brain at the same time and both really need the work out.
Last time I decided to exercise I wasn’t writing and I really wasn’t pushing myself. Last time I went on a writing binge (at the end of last year) I wasn’t exerxising. Now I’m pushing myself n both areas at the same time. I’ve been working out nearly every day and writing every day.
I’m not complaining. Perhaps I need to look at what I’m putting in my body as well. Let’s think about this for a minute. Last night I had two hot dogs, so e left over macaroni and cheese and one beer. Hmmm. I don’t drink often. I enjoy a beer when I have one. Perhaps I’m just overreacting to this one slow wake up. Perhaps. I’ll let you know.
Speaking of writing, I finished my story for the Mad Scientist Handbook Anthology and got that sent off. Felt good to complete another piece. Felt even better sending it off. It’s been a very long time since I’ve actually completed works and sent them off.
On the walking front, I continued the walk/jog on my circuit. I shaved off another minute. My legs are stiff and sore, but in a good way. I’m still stretching them several times per day and this does help. Not sure I’ll get my walk in today. It’s tme to clean the house, pack, book the hotel and head off to LA.
We’re heading to Lakewood California (not the nicest of neighborhoods but not awful either) for my favorite daughter’s first travel team volleyball tournament. Kind of excited as I’ve seen how well they’re doing in practice. They should do really well.
Speaking of Lakewood. It’s next door to Long Beach. I used to li e in Long Beach. But that’s a story for another time.
