Schedule Proposal

I feel like I have been acting not-like-myself lately. I have been really lazy and withdrawn. I need to try to work on that before I start to alienate the people that I love. I am starting by proposing to my boss that I work 6:30 to 3:15 from now on.

This schedule change will have a couple of benefits:
1. I won’t have to deal with traffic so there will be a lot less road-rage in my life. What you wouldn’t picture the K80K as having road rage? You better believe I do. It is one of the only places where you will hear me curse. Just ask Tyrant.
2. I won’t have to compete with Dad in the morning for the shower.
3. No matter what I will always go to bed at 10:00, so by getting off work at 3:15 I will effectively give myself another useful hour a day. An hour that I can spend playing with my dog or doing my Tae Bo, which I haven’t done in nearly 3 weeks.

I just can’t see anything bad coming from getting to work early and leaving early. I will have an entire hour in the morning to work on stuff without people bugging me. I will be able to get my reports out earlier, and I will have less opportunity to snack after I eat my lunch.

I have convinced myself that this is the best thing for me right now, so hopefully my boss will buy into it. I think a change like this will just give me the motivation to fix some of the other problems I am having right now; mainly eating like crap and not exercising enough. I have found that I am starting to lose my breath when climbing stairs, which is just uncalled for. And I have gained 14 pounds, which is just inexcusable.

I will be able to get myself back on track now that I recognize that this is a big issue. I just need everyone to be patient for a little bit while I kick myself in the butt.

On sad note, a family that I used to consider my own is really hurting right now and I am a little frustrated because it is no longer my place to be there to help them. I made a decision to walk away from an unhealthy situation and part of the trade-off was that I had to walk away from this family. It just hurts that I can’t do anything to help these people that will always be near and dear to my heart. I hope they know how much I loved them.
