Week 12.5: Working & Working Out

Took a job at Reader’s Digest proofreading their June 2011 issue. I’m expected to be in for 8 hours daily. Now this really crimps my exercise routines – I used to be able to do them whenever I wanted to do.

Still, I don’t think it’s an either-or situation. I can have it all along with my other freelance work.

My plan:

  1. Wake up earlier
  2. Work whenever I’m in transit.

Of course, things don’t always fall in place.

I’ve tried to wake up earlier. But it didn’t work out. And it’s just head-spinning to type in transit. Maybe it’s just a matter of getting used to it.

I’ll find out in the next week.
