Schedule Change

Hello everyone! Today is the start of a new routine for me. We don’t change work schedules very often, but the time arose and I decided to go with a different schedule. It’ll only last for the summer until I go back on my school schedule. I have worked 7-3:30 for a couple of years now. I decided to change my work schedule to the 8-4:30 shift. I did this solely for the purpose of having time to get in a morning workout. And that’s just what I did this morning! I am still going to wake up at 5 AM with hubby, pack our lunches, eat breakfast, and when he leaves at 5:45, I will head out the door for a run or whatever I am going to do.

This morning I went for a run. It was difficult to breathe and I am drenched in sweat. I looked up the humidity level and it’s 94%- no wonder! I ran from one side of town to the other- something I never thought possible when I first started. It is exactly one mile. I was surprised to see my time was 12:33, my fastest mile has been 13:15, so I’m not sure whether it’s right or not because I ran in a different place. But a mile is a mile I guess! I walked the rest of the way because the humidity was just killing me. I burned 396 calories. I think this will be a good way to start my day. I’m just hoping I don’t dread having to stay at work until 4:30 now! :)

Last night, hubby and I went for an hour long walk. It was super humid last night and miserable. But I did burn 435 calories.

The scale was being nice this morning, let’s hope it continues to weigh in day! Have a great day!
