So I got up early this morning and dragged my sorry butt to the gym...only to find that my trainer was on vacation!!! I was really bummed! So I ho-hummed on the elliptical, for, say 15 minutes and went home. It's all right, though, I'm taking my puppy to the Pacific Electric Trail tonight for a brisk walk. ^_^
Anyway, I'm in week 3 (4? I'm going to stop counting now) of my "Get Fit" goal. I'm down from 156 to 147.8 since I've returned from Seattle (about a month ago). I've been trying to keep up with a diet and exercise plan, which has helped me tremendously.
I'm finally getting used to the routine of hitting the gym. I'm noticing a fantastic boost in my mood and I love going for the social aspect, which I desperately need after a summer of working crazy hours.
Speaking of crazy hours, I have just completed my last 50-hour week for the summer, and next week I'll be heading to San Diego for my stepsister Janelle's wedding. This means a weeee bit of clothes shopping before the big weekend and DUN DUN DUN....School starting.
I thought I would post a few pictures of my ways of staying "organized", because I have a very busy and full life with lots of room for to-do lists.
I think one of my biggest pieces of advice to staying organized is making time out of your day (and week) to focus on what needs to be done. My day for this is Monday, usually in the mornings. I also have about an hour and a half each day before I start work (I carpool with Kurt) in which I take the time to organize my thoughts, read, write, and plan for the day/week.
If you must know, I work twelve hour shifts, 7am-7pm, I am up at 4am every day to be in Covina by 5:30. It took a while to get used to the long hours and commutes (I have a 45-minute train ride home). But after doing it for two years, it's become a functioning part of my schedule. I actually enjoy it (once I get past the part of hating my alarm clock...)
So happy Sunday everyone, it's going to be a great action-packed week! I'll keep in touch and hopefully be able to stay organized.
