My morning routine.

Normally I get up at 6:00 AM, flip on the coffee machine, let the dogs out, feed the dogs and then take care of various administrative duties required by the forum. By the time I finish doing all that my coffee is ready; I pour a big cup (jet fuel strong & black), relax, read the forum and read my email. While I’m reading the forum, I think about what I’m going to write for the JSF Daily News update. Occasionally I’ll think of something semi-interesting to focus on, but the majority of the time I wind up typing with nothing particular in mind. After my update I’ll do my cardio (if it’s a cardio day) and eat my breakfast.

This is an absolutely riveting routine, I know, but it is a routine I’m very fond of. I have a lot to accomplish in the hours between 6:00 AM and 9:00 AM, and having a familiar process helps me maximize my time. I don’t like it when my routine is disturbed, because it throws me off and I’m not too good at thinking on my feet at 6:00 AM with no coffee. This morning I forgot to turn on the coffee when I got up, I forgot to run the dishwasher last night, my Internet access keeps going down and I’m feeling a little foggy-headed. Rather than sit around waiting for the coffee to brew (with no Internet access), I decided to do my cardio first. Keeping my heart rate around 133-135 is very easy for me, so I seriously came very close to falling back asleep while doing my cardio. Normally I like LISS cardio, but I’m normally much more awake for it and can make better use of the time mentally.

My Internet connection is still down, so I guess I’ll be using my backup 56k modem to upload this update to the server. I hope it still works – it’s been a long time since I’ve used it!

Clearly this is one of those days where I had absolutely nothing in mind when I started writing. Talk about a rambling, disjointed stream of consciousness! :o
