It’s 8:00am and My Day is Half Over

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Island Style Realty Inc. RB-19250

Alarm ClockWell not maybe half over, but I have gotten a lot done.  How you start your day will set the pace for how productive will be.

In the past I was an evening person.  Unfortunately I married a morning person.  After 13 years of marriage my wife Darnelle is finally changing me.

By 4:45am she has the lights on, TV turned to the news and the hair blower going.  If that is not enough she will begin to quiz me about the day's schedule.  No chance of going back to sleep at that point.  So what to do?

Many of you know that over the last year I lost a ton of weight.  The follow-up to that is now I am hitting the gym on a regular basis.  What better time to work out than 5:30 in the morning.  The phones aren't ringing.  I am already up and the gym is practically empty, giving me my own private work out area.  So off I go.  The most important part of this is that I don't have time to make excuses, I just take my vitamins, slip on my gym shoes and head to the YMCA.  So the end result is I have finally found a benefit of being married to a morning person.  Thanks to my morning person wife, weight lifting and cardio training has become a way of life for me.

After my trip to the Gym, I still have time to shower, dress, eat breakfast and return messages by 8am.  I even get some posting on Active Rain in by then.  That may not be a half a day's work, but its a great start.

Good for you, Randy. You should be very proud of your accomplishemtn. The dedication is so important, even if it is somewhat the result of your relationship...but that kind of inspiration can be the best! I'm lazy - not up til 6 but at the gym usually 5-6 days per week unless the schedule gets out of control.

Jeff - 5-6 days a week at the gym is really dedicated.  I have been steady at every other day.

Ugh. I want to be like you Randy, but the older I get, the later I stay up and the harder it is to get going. I think it's great you're able to be so disciplined!
