Two cups of coffee have been brewed. The morning has started. Bold was the only word on the outside of the package. My only other choice was a package that appeared to be decaffeinated. When I’m traveling I wake up to Mike & Mike in the morning on ESPN2. The show generally occurs without any yelling (or confrontation) and the hosts are engaging. I like to listen to them while reading a USA Today or Wall Street Journal (WSJ) newspaper. Coffee is also a regular part of that routine.
Hotels are pretty much the only places where I sit down and read a physical newspaper. I lay them out flat and read them from the front to the back. The articles do not seem to be as detailed as they used to be. I strongly prefer the WSJ, but any paper will work — the routine is part of a process that starts the day.
Last night I ran/walked on a treadmill for about thirty minutes. I’m trying to change my routine to include working out more often. It is a challenge. I’m going to make it happen, but that does not mean it will not be a challenge.
