The one thing I’m not adjusting to with this new job is the hours. These guys are in at 7:30am every morning – some of them are in earlier. I struggle to make it at 8:00. Most days I make 8:30. Today I made 9:15. That’s despite sleeping from 5pm yesterday till 7am today.
I hate being late. And yet? I cannot physically move myself any faster in the morning. Even when my clock is ticking over to 8am and I’m still sitting on my bed in a robe drinking green tea.
Mornings really suck.
I read somewhere an article called ‘five tips for waking up early’, and I thought: ‘Finally! Those are some tips I could use!’ they were all ridiculous though. Like: Keep a bottle of caffeinated soda beside your bed and drink some as soon as your alarm goes off.
Also: Eat a big cooked breakfast, or in a pinch a very sugary cereal to wake yourself up fast!
On a related, but sort of un-related note, I’m so fat right now I feel like an overstuffed burrito in my work clothes. ALL my waistlines pinch and squeeze. I don’t think I should be eating massive cooked breakfasts, and sugary cereal. EVER.
Did you know that four years ago I was 30kgs lighter? And last year I fit all my cute work dresses? And I go to TKD twice a week, And try to get tot he gym at least once a week (usually twice) I walk the half hour to work and home three times a week, and always take the stairs at work.
Most weekends I’m on my feet for a minimum of four hours at the SPCA, sweating and handling animals, and lifting dog food, and cleaning things?
And I STILL gain weight. I have a feeling that I’m going to fucking hate my metabolism as I get older. Hello 26 years old. You kind of suck a little bit.
