This morning I did not have to give an 8am lecture full of newly prepped content. This morning I slept until 6:58, which, while not planned, was not a catastrophe. I thought I might go into my office and kerbam-kerpow my way through my to-do list, but I neither kerbammed nor kerpowed.
Over the past month I have been drifting into that state where non-essentials get pushed aside. This means that my Do All The Things list contains a bunch of backlogged Things. Probably the first on the list should be (1) Eat better followed by (2) Get back into the exercise groove. Probably that will help me make better decisions about all the other Things.
After I finished the Whole 30 I mused about staying gluten-free, but gluten-free is a hassle. I miss that Whole 30 magic, though, in which my default state of mind is that I am by golly going to get stuff done. I also just bought Run Fast, Eat Slow, and it looks promising. So here is my tentative plan:
- Do a Whole 10, with the freedom to intersperse non-Paleo recipes from RFES.
- Register for a November 10K as an impetus to get moving again.
- Plow through the backlogged grading, with special emphasis on the grad class I've just handed off.
- Make a Plan for the three (!) conference posters that I'm presenting next month. (4a. Decline to think just now about the amount of painstaking work that one of them will require.)
- Revisit the abandoned brain dump notes, and make another Plan for that stuff.
I'm going to aim to make excellent progress by Thursday. I'll report back.
