“Plan your work; work your plan.”
- The Dead Prez, Discipline
When I say perfect morning and perfect week, I am excluding cuddling and smooching and all that stuff that makes life worth while. I get that as often as I can, whenever geography permits and don’t feel like I’m missing opportunities to do so because of my lack of organizational skills.
But I do feel like I waste a whole lotta time.
So, here are some blueprints for a perfect morning and a perfect week.
My good morning starts the night before. Before I get to sleep I have to:
- Make sure my bags are packed
- Make tomorrow’s lunch
- Sit down for fifteen minutes and prioritize my tasks for the coming day
- 8 hours of sleep, please!
A great morning means:
- No Snooze bar (yes my phone has a fucking snooze function)/No Internet
- Breakfast, look over day’s tasks before reading something
I’ve written down a few work-out routines for the morning, just a few fast bits that will get the blood going.
A good week means:
- School work got done early, on Sunday and Monday with only little bits to do during the week
- Clear and reachable writing goals
- Clear and reachable exercise goals
Once I set weekly goals, I know what I have to do each day and the week is more manageable. I woke up after re-setting my alarm and hitting the snooze button half a dozen times really just mad at myself this morning. Something has to change.
So, rather than beat myself up over what I did or didn’t do, I’m thinking about what I can do better.
One exercise bit that is going well is I’m doing sets of 20 push-ups at work. I brought my push-up bars to work with me and I will get in 100 push-ups during the day. Feels good.
I’m losing weight due to my weekly exercise activity and body-weight exercises are getting easier and easier, which is nice. Dips aren’t quite as easy as they were when I weighted an even 200 but its getting there. I can do up to 8 dips in a set, as opposed to the 4 I could do when I first got the pull-bar/dip dingus in my room and chin-ups are slowly but surely improving too.
Have a good weekend, folks.
