I woke up yesterday and went to the gym. The nice weather almost made me decide to run outside, but the need to establish everyday as a gym day forced me to walk to the gym and use the equipment there. I spent fifteen minutes on the treadmill, and then did fifteen minutes on the bicycle. By the end of it, I again worked up a sweat which told me I really need to be doing this more often.
When I returned to the house, my roommate and I opted to walk to the comic book store in town. (I want to pick up a copy of the Doomsday Clock by Geoff Johns today). I had to make sure one got set aside for me, or at least that there were going to be enough. I got one. (My review will be up soon after this). I ended up buying two X-Men graphic novels that I wanted.
Finally, I went food shopping. I went bonkers with buying food. I bought everything from veggie burgers, to peanut butter for sandwiches, to vegan meats, and rice. I should have enough food for the next couple weeks if I ration things right and don’t go crazy.
As I sit and write this, I realize how much I need to not be writing at home. For some reason, my words don’t flow as easy and I feel like I ramble on a lot more. It’s an interesting feeling to have when one is a writer that their ‘home’ is not outfit to be written in.
This, however, is a good thing to note, especially as I move further so early on in my journey. I will need to be getting up and going into Jersey City in the mornings to get all this done and finish my work there. It does mean that today was a bit of a bust. I bought food. Good. I spent too much. Bad. I went to the gym. Good. I bought comics. Bad. I bought new headphones. Bad.
Much of this stuff is not a horrible bad once again. I needed food for home badly, and I am still ahead of everything in terms of payments. The new headphones are needed. My current headphones work, but don’t seal out other sounds which leave me distracted at the gym when I need to be focused. The comic books will get reviewed here as soon as I finish them. I can work with everything I have. The biggest thing I need to realize is never two days in a row.
Today needs to be immaculate. I need to be on top of my game. I will get up at 10am. I will get to the gym and do my body weight workout. I will be eating at work so that means just coffee before then. I will get a bunch of writing done, and then work my butt off at one of the busiest drinking days in the year.
Being a superhero is tough, but success is close. I just have to take it one day at a time. This was just not the best of days, but far from how bad it could have been. I am on track to live the superhero life. Fridge is stock. Headphones for the gym are ordered. And I am ready.
