It’s working! I slept so well last night that I barely made it to work on time. Now, this is a feat given that I work a mere five paces from my bed. Fortunately, it appears that I won’t be stuck in this rut of insomnia anymore. Granted it’s only been two days, so I probably shouldn’t get ahead of myself. I’m sure the cooler temperatures last night and this morning helped facilitate a night of restful sleep. Although to be fair, I have been completely exhausting myself, in a good way, between running, Sweat workouts, and the yoga challenge.
The worst part of waking up super late for work is having to start the work day without coffee on board. Thank god for Uber Eats because there was no way I could work without having my Dunkin’s coffee. Fortunately, they were quite fast this morning. They delivered my coffee shortly after I had started my work day. I snuck out to walk the dogs as soon as I got clocked in and set up. The dogs were definitely wondering why I was so late this morning as they are so used to being taken out at the same time every morning. Thankfully, I work from home otherwise this morning would have been an utter hellscape.
So I’m happy it’s working, the schedule changes I made to my day, but I would love to see an uptick at work. Despite it being OEP, it’s been scarily slow. Since tech made some updates to the system last spring, the lead flow from some folks has been light. This change on top of a slowdown in overall volume has been disastrous. I hate being bored! I like to be and need to be busy. I’m really hoping volume picks up soon. Like I mentioned earlier in the week, there’s only so many times you can reach the end of the internet each day.
I just finished my two mile run and it went well. The lungs felt much better today. My lower back is still bothering me off and on, but mostly at night. We did get our spin bike yesterday. The boys are excited to get it setup in the gym upstairs. For whatever reason, it doesn’t bother me while I run. Since I’m doing the yoga challenge, I opted to not do the optional Sweat HIIT workout today. Instead, the two mile run, one mile walk and 30 minute yoga practice will suffice. I previewed today’s yoga practice earlier. Fortunately, it looks like a soothing 30 minute practice, which is exactly what my body needs today. Anway, the new routine, it’s working.

- Blog: done. Today’ Bloganuary prompt was why do you write? I write because it’s a healthy way to express my thoughts. I know you thought it was because I like being attached to my keyboard.
