Ready! Sweat! Go!: Day 14

I'm back on the wagon and it feels good.  Getting up at a reasonable time on Monday mornings and getting out into the world and accomplishing something productive sets the tone for the rest of the day.  I work the evening shift on Mondays so I used to get up around 9:30 or 10:00 AM and then stay in my pajamas 'til noon.  That is when I would usually start my lunch time.  And I'd be sluggish on getting ready and dressed for work.

Now I get up at 8:30 and I'm at the gym by 9.  I'm home by 10:30 and head for the shower.  And by 11:00 I am set for the rest of my day.  ( And I have an hour to spare. )
