Tweak What's Needed

I officially have 4 weeks of work finished. 4 weeks of 4, 11 hour days (10 paid work, 1 lunch). There were a few adjustments that had to be made but overall all my plans work perfectly.

Having my outfits ready to go was utter brilliance, however, also pairing shoes with each outfit was overkill (especially since I ended up wearing the same 3 pairs over and over).

Having all my lunches made and in the freezer, made it much easier to get out the door in the morning. I then heated them up at work and added a huge green salad (provided by work). They kept me well fed and nourished and ready to get back to work.

I also:

Moved my wake-up time back a half hour to give me more wiggle room. (I didn't like feeling rushed in the morning.)

I found a calmer drive to/from work. (Avoiding a major highway connecting Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA.)

and

I integrated my afternoon workout right into my schedule. Everyone I work with knows that I will be at the gym/outside from 3-4pm so they can plan ahead if need be.

All these little tweaks made things work out even better than expected. I look forward to heading back to work in 2011 refreshed and ready to go!
