Early Bird...

So... I've been on my early arrival at work kick since the new year began, as part of my effort to be a more productive worker this year. 

Accordingly, I've been waking religiously at 5 am, Monday through Friday, and leaving home between 6 & 6:30 am. 

My body is even cooperating now, I've awakened on several occasions over the past 2 weeks without the assistance of an alarm clock. I'm able to drive to work & park in about 35 minutes, that time of day. My ultimate goal each morning is to arrive at work before 7 am, that way I'm out the door again no later than 3:30 pm. I'm able to beat the evening rush-hour pretty easily now & I'm usually home in a jiffy. I could definitely get used to using less gas & fighting far fewer people on the roadway. 

I've really been enjoying the benefits of being home so early. The extra daylight each evening should really come in handy when I began running again this spring. Aside from that, I've been accomplishing much more in terms of running errands & completing various tasks around the house since beginning this new tour of duty. I'm hoping that I'll be able to stick to this plan for a while.


  1. Stumbled across your blog and I was just thinking "I need to get to work early because I'm sick and tired of driving in traffic". Leaving work by four everyday sounds so good, I think I'm gonna give it a try. By the way, Happy New Year! Hope all is well and I'm so enjoying your blogs :)

    1. Well, I highly recommend that you give it a shot! Adjusting my tour of has made my life SO much easier! Thx for checking me out!
