This was not the crash I expected

Today was good, but I didn't get nearly as much accomplished today as I did yesterday. I did get a decent amount of editing done, but I'm nowhere near where I wanted to be with physical activity.

And it's not that I didn't have the energy today. It's that I'm still trying to adjust to my new sandals. I strapped myself into them wrong before I left to meet a friend for lunch, and ended up with a line blister across my big toe.

Monday. Accomplished

Today was supposed to be my set-up day for the week. Yesterday I did my grocery shopping and took care of preparing my breakfasts for the week, a spicy egg salad on lettuce. That only left me with this morning to take care of the big cook that I tend to do each week, where I prep a week's worth of dinner from a single pressure cooker batch.

That ended up taking me longer than I had expected, so I didn't leave the house until almost 11 am. I made up for my late start by putting in two solid hours on my bike. By the end of that ride, I'd burned enough calories that reaching my target burn for this week (at least 4k calories a day) was dead easy.

Mind you, it also left me dead tired for a couple of hours, but I expected that. Once I recovered, I got to work on some non-paying writing. I got started with writing when I was doing recaps for a role-playing game with friends several years ago, and it's still a thing I like doing because it helps me to push certain muscles in terms of my writing.

Plus, it can be fairly easy to pump out a massive number of words. I wrote 3,000 words this evening.
