Most exercise routines on Neila Rey’s site are split into three levels. Level I’s a good place to start off if you’re like me, while Level III is for the more hardcore fitness buffs. During the first week of the challenge, Level I looked like a fairly steep cliff, and attempting to scale it took a lot out of me. But this past week, I was able to push myself a bit more, turning that steep cliff into nothing more than a dirt mound and reaching ever closer to Level II. Looks like some of that gravy’s been burned off, at least.
The end of the week became slightly tougher because of a sudden and inexplicable cold, but that did nothing to dampen my resolve. A challenge was laid down and a challenge must be met, even if I’m currently coughing up both lungs.
On to Week 3!
And just like that, work appears.
Afternoons are a dangerously quiet time on the best of days. Post-lunch drowsiness syndrome tends to affect everyone for an hour or so, grinding all business to a halt. On a day like this, the silence can be deafening. I glance at the clock on my computer screen and my jaw drops as I realize there’s still two and a half hours to go until the end of the work day. Two and a half excruciating hours of staring at a computer that seems to no longer entertain or inform. There are no more blog articles to read and the news sites don’t report anything new.
So I’ll just hang around here and watch the clock tick away, I guess.
And when the work day is done and I finally go home, there really won’t be time to do anything…
