Morning Routine, Full Body Rash And Over Due Bills

Weekly wrap up everyone! I was able to survive this week, thank goodness. Here are the the main things that happened last week.


Morning Routine

There were a few mornings in which I only had to be at the gym at 6:30 am instead of my regular 6:00 am. I woke up at my usual time of 4:50am to see if I could be more productive…and I was! On top of not being rushed to work, I got to enjoy my breakfast, not burn my tongue on my coffee and read a good 30-40min!

I’m currently reading 2 books, I alternate one morning between the biography of Arnold Schwarzenegger and the “7 habits of effective people”. Reading about Arnie in the morning is really motivating and helps me go through my day 100% dedicated to what I have to do. Obviously he is more than a business figure for me since he shaped the world of body building which is also motivating to read about with my show coming up.

Reading about the 7 habits first thing in the morning is also great because it helps me focus on one thing I want to improve on that day. The author often asks to put habits into effect so on those days I can focus on practicing the habits I’m trying to form.

I also journal for 5 minutes, just writing down a to do list for the day. It quickly became overwhelming with all the crap that needs to be done and so I use to 80-20 rule every morning and ask myself: “What are the tasks that will take 20% of my time but yield 80% of the results?”. This has helped prioritize things immensely and I actually feel like I’m getting shit done.

All in all, I love this new routine, and I’m even considering waking up an extra 30 minutes early on the morning I start at 6:00 am to make it a habit. I have noticed a difference in productivity and work output on the days I got to read before work and will try to keep that going


Full Body Rash

Ok so I don’t know what happened, but last Saturday, I got a full body rash! Out of no where! It is now all gone but I was worried for a few days.

My biggest worry was about the potential change up in diet and supplementation I would have to try if the rash persisted, since the show is so close.
