When I hit 30, I patted myself on the back, but at 60, I figured I’d blog about it. So what am I talking about?
Today is the 61st day in a row that I’ve worked out – I check off every morning on Joe’s Goals. Yeah, it’s not huge deal, but it’s a great thing for me. See, it’s not just working out (that I’ve been doing fairly consistently for a while now), it’s more than that… and it’s become routine. It all started when I woke up really early to go on a hike with my friends. I’d forgotten how nice it is to be up so early: to be out in the crisp morning air, few people are out and about, and the day is just that much longer. I decided to start a new routine, and I’ve stuck with it. There were a few lapses in the beginning, and some of my mornings have started with a little less energy than the others, but for 61 days I’ve done pretty much the same thing:
-At 6am my alarm goes off.
-I get out of bed right away and go down to grab one of my tasty nutritional supplement drinks.
-Quickly finishing that, I go out for a 30 minute walk around my neighborhood block.
-Back home I workout and stretch.
-Finally I take a shower, and I’m out and done with my routine by 8am.
Like I said, it’s not a huge deal, but I’ve been proud of myself for getting into this little morning habit over the past couple of months. With my creative endeavors and my aim for Chapman, I’ve really been working hard on a number areas of my life, and it’s even nicer to start each day with a healthy productive morning 🙂
I know my blogging has been a little absent lately, and I apologize – but it’s not my fault… I’ve been busy working out 😉
