Feeling uncommunicative

That's probably the worse thing for a blogger. I do have thoughts. But they are jumbled. So I've been putting off posting. I just realized I hadn't posted anything here in two weeks though!

Part of it is my job. I don't talk about my job (or my marriage) much on the blog because I am well aware that this is a public place and that things "get around." I have no problem talking about me, but my job involves other people -- people who may not be too happy to hear what I think about them and then I still have to work with them!


Anyway, the point about my job and this blog is that I'm on this new project. It's a great project that I'm very happy to be on. But it's killing me! I have been working nights and weekends since I started, two weeks ago, and it's cut into my internet time.

Which may be a good thing.  I definitely waste time on the internet. But it means I'm also not keeping up with a few things that I want or need to keep up with. Like this blog.

The other thing that is suffering is my workouts. Though I'm still working out a lot and I am supposed to be resting this month. But I've missed a bunch of workouts during the week because I can't pull myself away from work because I have to get what I promised to do done.

This week I tried something different. I went to my swim and bike workouts anyway. Then I just went back to work. On Wednesday, this worked very well. I was frustrated when I left to go swimming, but when I came back, I was relaxed and was able to solve a tricky problem that I was banging my head against the wall prior to the break.

Yesterday, it didn't work quite so well. I was glad to do my bike workout. But then I got home so late that I didn't get enough sleep and still got up later than I wanted to. I've been down this road before and it's a vicious cycle. You start getting into work later and later and then that means you get home later and later.

For now, I'm going to watch it and see what happens. But I know I can't keep up the pace I've been on for the past two weeks.
