11:23 a.m. It's Monday. And though I felt like I 'slept in' I actually woke up around 9:30 a.m. The morning routine is going as usual, even if certain tasks were performed out of order.
I made use of my new marker boards and set up one for daily task streak tracking, one to track stuff I want/need, and to track my biking goals. Six boards total..and counting...possibly.
I really enjoy being this organized and look forward to implementing this stuff. Not mention, the marker boards save a lot of thumbtack walls (I use double sided tape instead, when it can stay up) and save a lot of paper when it comes to a task being completed or needing changed/removed completely. I enjoy it immensely.
At the moment, sitting on my newly made bed and listening to old twentyonepilots songs as I write this. Namely, the song 'Prove Me Wrong.'
So now that this task is done, blogging, there's not a whole ton of other things to say of yet. Except God bless you who reads this and hope your day goes easier than mine. :P
12:30 p.m. Had a nice breakfast, did my german lessons, and gt the laundry going. Now planning a route for a nice 2 mile (4 mile round-trip bike ride.) My Grandma's old church is there (the one I even imagine myself getting married in someday) the one I started visiting now and then in my early teen years. It's also where most of the funerals/wedding stuff gets held by people on my Mom's side of the family.
My typical method is to virtual travel there by google maps first before going out, to get a general idea. Feels safer that way. Then I screenshot directions and landmarks to get there and back. We'll see how this goes *shrug* It's the first place listed on my bike travel list (at least, the one listed in order from shortest distance to the longest.)
1:48 p.m. Got four miles in round trip on my bike. And wadd'ya know, it only took a little under an hour 92 degree heat and 50% humidity. That's..some heavy hitting heat to be waiting in. And a small portion of that was spent at the cross light on the way back. At a heavy intersection. Took so long I kept thinking the thing was broken. I. was. baking. in. the. heat.
Finally, I just waited until it was clear, (yes, I jaywalked, God forgive me) and the thing turned to the walking symbol as I nearly reached the other side! Um..great timing! -_- Wasn't smart, I know. I lack patience and it's a skill I need to work on.
I've sweated out my change of clothes. I need a shower. I 'still' need to walk the dogs and get some lunch. But at least the productivity train is rolling. It's not easy, but I 'greatly' prefer it to an entire day on the couch in front of a tv. Hot as it is, I 'really' like getting out there and being active in life.
P.S. For me, four miles round trip is just a starting point. My most comfortable distance to go while still feeling like I'm challenging myself. Comparatively, back when I was biking regularly, I was making six miles round-trip, plus the extra hour or two of light to medium cardio. So yeah, this is a nice easy start and I hope it continues...while I can.
I don't know what my schedule will be like if/when, God willing, job training gets going.
3:05 p.m. Had lunch and some other tasks done. Now it's about time to walk the dog. o.O
5:09 p.m. Had lunch, chilled, and then went up to the store to get popcorn. Good times.
All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
