Sleep When You Feel Like It

Ugh, wouldn't you know it?  Here it is, 5:30 AM, and I'm bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.  Well, not really, but I am awake and able to do stuff.  Why couldn't I have felt this way yesterday? *sigh*  In good news, I did feel better in the evening and unfolded the treadmill.  It worked fine, though I did turn off my computer beforehand just to be sure to avoid power surges.  I watched last week's episode of Enterprise, and got in a good 45 minutes.  I was only going about 3 mph with a medium level of resistance on the hand levers (no incline), so I'm starting slow.  I figure it's good to get used to using it first, then start pushing myself once I'm firmly ingrained in the habit.  Anyway, that was a nice feeling of accomplishment.  Must finish putting DVD player back today...

Does anyone ever go into a semi-hypnotic state in the shower?  I would love to get those neural nodes stuck to my head someday, and see what goes on in my brain when I step into the tub.  (I know, seeing what's going inside my head would be a scary experience!)  Seriously, I lose almost all sense of time and catch myself staring ahead at nothing for several minutes.  I'm not even really thinking about anything in particular, I'm just... there.  It's like my brain goes into "reboot" mode while the water is hitting me.  I have to force myself to stay cognizant, and keep moving to avoid falling into that tendency.  It's very odd.

Current Mood: blah blah

Actually, I would imagine that no matter how slowly you have the settings, it's the act of walking itself that burns the calories. The only reason I had it set super fast was because I was training for the mini. If I were to use a treadmill now, I don't think I'd push myself as much.

Avioding powersurges, and blank stares :)

Dude, just to let you know, just by turning off your computer doesn't mean you will avoid power surges, you must unplug it from the wall.

Secondly, if you are finding yourself staring in the shower, I would make sure that the water was not ice cold and that you are not in shock, then I would try to focus on the things that you have to do for the day so that it kicks you out of that. Give it a shot.
