As I sit here, still in my pajamas at 3:30PM for the 4th day in a row, I have to wonder how different my life would be if I had a job with set hours. If I worked a 9AM-5PM job, I would have to get up every morning, be productive, and go to bed at a decent hour. Maybe I should try to do that anyway. I'm in a new part of the country, within 2 hours of several states I've never been to, tons of new things to see and experience, and I have yet to venture more than half an hour away from my house. On days like today when I don't have to work until 6:30PM, I could have done any number of things. I realize that any schedule I establish would be disrupted when I have to be at a load-out until 4AM, or I have to get up at 5AM for a load-in, but I think it might be worth it to try to get some kind of normalcy in my day-to-day routine.

Speaking of routines, I've decided that I really need to get back into a workout routine. I would like to join the campus gym, but it looks kind of small and crowded. All the gyms around town are too expensive for my salary. The only option left is to workout at home/outside. The problem there is that I'm too out-of-shape to run more than a few minutes at a time, and I don't want people watching me. I could get up at the crack of dawn when everyone is asleep, but we all know I'm not a morning person. I could run at night when everyone's curtains are drawn, but I don't know how safe my neighborhood is, really. (Although my midnight runs in Brooklyn probably weren't the safest. :-P)

So... I'm at a standstill right now on the exercise front, and I would sincerely like to stop lazing away my time in the south. I'm open to any suggestions or advice as to the establishment of routines, and I'll keep any readers I happen to have posted on my progress!


  1. Get Power 90 or P90X. P90X would be more effective and less boring, but it's a lot harder. It's also more expensive.

    You can modify the workouts, though, so yeah... but if you don't want to do anything outside, that's what I would recommend.

  2. I'm thinking you should get a little pet - like a beta fish or a hermit crab or something. And then part of your daily routine would be feeding it and stuff. I also think you should read some Bible verses every night before you go to bed (I know exactly how likely you are to do that, but I had to throw it out there anyway.) :)

  3. Josh - Yeah, I've thought about that. I might just try some cardio and yoga for now. Heck, maybe I'll get some Sweatin' to the Oldies. lol

    Debbie - I'd like to get a pet, but the problem is when I come home, I'd have to find someone to take care of it, or take it with me, and that'd be rough when I fly. And, I do read before bed every night, just not Bible verses. :-P
