What makes this just a bit saltier is the fact that I'm supposed to be participating in a Health Challenge in order to maintain a $50 monthly deduction from my Health Insurance. One of the questions you're supposed to answer daily is "did you get 7 hours of sleep last night?" And the answer is... no. I have dogs and their routine is to get up around 5:30 in the morning (I get them up at 3:30 when I need to be there by 5:30). Rare are the nights I get a good 7 hours of sleep, mostly it's between 5 and 6. On the 7th and 8th days of this stretch I have to be at the store by 5:30 in the morning, so those will be early days for the girls.
Of course, with this Health Challenge, you're also supposed to be working out on a regular basis. Now that's a laugh. Talk to any personal trainer and they'll tell you one of the most important thing you can do is to set up a routine: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are weight training, Tuesdays and Thursdays are Cardio. It doesn't need to be those specific days, but you need a routine to follow on a regular basis. This is how we create habits. My schedule precludes any such routine or any kind of regime. In case you are wondering, I am not alone. All full-time associates deal with this nightmare. This is the horror of retail scheduling. You have no idea how often I would like to call corporate and tell them to just Decorate This.
