I also write research notes.
Working Out: Went to the gym Monday afternoon. Read a manuscript on the eliptical, which mostly worked except when I had to turn a page and became aware of my balance and that I was stomping on pedals that were going up and down. Managed 120 calories in 20 minutes and a 4000 word manuscript. Went on to the rowing machine (110 calories in 10 minutes, without the manuscript) and assisted chin-ups and dips. Did 3/12 curl-ups on the Power Station, 3/12 40lbs pec flies, 3/12 80 lb lat pulls.
Writing: I haven't been as regular or productive at morning writing sessions as I was this time last Summer. Part of last year's success is that I used a LED candle to wake myself up at 5 AM so I could write; the candles have a clock in them so they turn on at the same time every day for four hours. The candles are great, but they do take batteries, and the batteries slowly die -- so the candles' LED flames become dimmer and dimmer and dimmer. This summer, their dimming coincided with the increase in morning light, which I thought I could use as a Time-To-Write prompt, but I guess not. I'm hopeful that I'll be able to write more.
