Made it back. Finally.
I’d have to say this was one of my better weeks at my main job. It was the start of a new two-week work cycle, and as cycles go this one is a breeze. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I was able to finish two hours before the normal quitting time, while due to some catch-up work I got out about 45 minutes early on Thursday. To make things even better each day was a very low-pressure sort of day. No rushing around or worrying about deadlines.
Monday was my only shift at the Major Home Improvement Retailer, a 7 to 11. While I generally dislike later shifts like that, so often they just drag and drag, this one went by quickly because I was really busy. Three truckloads of freight had arrived earlier in the day and everything was sorted and ready for packout by the time I arrived. It was quite a contrast to the very dull weekend shifts!
Now, the really remarkable day was Thursday. After too long away I finally overcame my low motivation and dragged myself back to the gym. It was nothing earth-shattering. I used the elliptical for 30 minutes and then did some upper body machine work. But that doesn’t matter, it felt fine and I’m very glad to be motivated once again.
