It's Monday. Again.

Actually, this Monday isn't that bad. Granted, it's only 8 AM, but still - I'm down 4.5 pounds from last Monday, so that's fantastic! Plus, today starts my new routine.

1. Get up.
2. Pack Hotrod's lunch.
3. Work out.
4. Shower.
5. Write until my daily page count is met.

Seems simple enough, doesn't it? Well, this is week one. I'll let you know on Friday how successful I was at sticking to that.

What's your routine?


  1. Congrats on the weight!!! That's awesome.

    My routine involves the gym and breaking up fights. :-) And maybe some tickling.

  2. Congratulations on the weight loss! Yay you. =o)

    Right now, my routine is:

    Read blogs.
    Call my mother (Mondays only... Mostly.)
    Exercise for at least a half hour.
    Run errands.
    Various sundry stuff between 10 and 5.
    Cook dinner.

    Lather rinse repeat as directed. ;o)

  3. Yeah! Good for you!

    Sounds like a great routine. :)

  4. Wow - yay on the weight loss, that's wonderful! Your routine sounds simple enough but yes that's usually deceptive...

    I need to get back on track exercise-wise, establish a firmer writing routine and start going to bed earlier. School starts for the kids in two weeks! Where did the summer go??

  5. You are in inspiration to all, especially me. My routine:


    That's it. For the next ten weeks.

  6. *sigh* I feel like I'm the only one on your blog who has to punch the clock for 'the man.'

    I'm sure everyone has paid their dues. still... I haz a sad.

    Oh - and I think I FOUND your 4.5 lbs... they're on my fanny if you want them back.

  7. Get up, make coffee (although I'm trying to switch to green tea), work out, blog, write.

    I didn't do so hot today. : (

  8. Hmm. Well, my schedule gets complicated when you include Monday and Friday travel/hotel checkin/out. But Tuesday-Thursday is

    Wake up naturally @6:00am.
    Check the internet
    Hotel room workout
    Go to customer's office @8:00am - Stab self in eye repeatedly for 10+ hours
    Back to hotel, pick up dinner, decide that Quiznos is suitably healthy.
    Call wife and child
    Set timer - write for 1 hour/1k words which ever comes second.
    1hr 20 minutes later, write 1000th word.
    Check internet again.
    Read myself to sleep.

  9. Love the photo! LOL cats are hilarious. And WOW on the pounds lost. That's amazing for just one week!
