Balancing work with exercise; Last night’s workout; New photo.
Things went very well at work yesterday, so it looks like I’m going to be able to take today off. I’ve also managed to build up 4 comp days over the past couple of weeks. On the surface that sounds great, but in reality I don’t know when I’ll be able to take any of them!
Yesterday I made it clear to my boss that I had a prior obligation and, come hell or high water, I was done at 5:00 PM. That obligation was, of course, my 6:00 PM delts and traps workout. I take an hour each day to workout; that is a non-negotiable part of the package. I won’t make an exception, and I refuse to think that the company I work for can’t do without me for 1 hour each day. My workouts are all scheduled “after hours” (whatever the hell than means in IT), and I jump through hoops the rest of the day/night to make sure I’m available. I think every employer should encourage their employees to exercise every day. I’m a far better employee now than I was three years ago when I was a fat, bitter, out-of-shape pothead.
Speaking of my delts and traps workout, it was a good one! As usual, I’ve posted the details along with a 1-year progress photo in my forum journal. Here’s the direct link.
