Staying disciplined

I don’t really have much outside structure on my life right now. I’ve been making my own, just so I don’t have too much of a rude awakening when I get called back to work. Up by 7 to see my husband out the door, coffee, Japanese lesson, workout, then the rest of the morning/afternoon is whatever activities I have queued up. Yesterday I re-caulked the bathtub and visited my local yarn store for materials for my next sweater, and made dinner. Today I’m supposed to meet a friend for lunch– hooray for social contact!

I’ve been poking around at GZCLP so I started that program yesterday. I’m not sure it’s a great fit, my goals are a little more aesthetic than pure strength lately so it’s a workable hybrid.  The workout was kind of short and boring because I didn’t start heavy– but I’m not sore today. I’m used to more volume so maybe I need to throw more T3 in there, even though they recommend not to.

The weather pendulum has swung over to “damn cold”. I ran in 28ºF this morning and by the end of the 30 minutes I was warmed and sweating in my layers– not ideal when it’s below freezing. But my clothes seemed to keep the moisture in rather than wicking it out to freeze, which is just as well– but soggy.

    Dealing with all that unstructured time is difficult; you’re not alone in that. I suppose that’s why people say if they won the lottery they would keep their job.

    I can’t believe how long this has gone on – I hope there’s a resolution soon. That said, I’m kind of impressed with Pelosi right now. She has balls and nerves of steel. But I’m sorry federal workers are the pawns in this.

    I can’t believe it’s been a month. At this point it’s sheer stubbornness. At least we should get paid if/when it resolves.

    I’m starting to believe that a good chunk of people honestly think that the “nonessential” work that’s not being done right now should stay that way.
