after reading about cal newport‘s sunday ritual, i wanted to share my own sunday traditions! you all know i’m typically a creature of habit and routine — and for the most part, i’m okay (even happy) with this.
cal’s ritual includes a late wake-up call, a trip to the gym (“hangover permitting”), a 3 hour study-fest, and a careful monday planning session.
while my relatives still like to refer to me as ‘in school’ (i’d be in the 25th grade!), my hangover-nursing sundays are (thankfully) over. so here goes my sunday routine . . . if you have one, i’d love to see yours!
sunday rituals: shubox style
what is this white stuff!?
normally, when we get snow it’s an event that people are buzzing about for days on before it actually happens. yesterday’s snowflakes were a sneak attack! a fun surprise for me since i was stuck inside all day (after rounding in the hospital) and it made my grant-writing seem almost . . . cozy.
off to do some of the above planning rituals, and then for my long run. it is going to be a cold one but i think today is going to be super-busy and it will be a fantastic feeling to be done before going in to round!
workout: 50 minutes on the elliptical, levels 9-12. sometime i think i’m the only runner who does not hate that machine! it is ideal for magazine reading, gives my joints a break, is a good cardiovascular workout, and goes by quickly when i break it up into intervals.
cuisine: well, it’s been sort of a lame weekend in the cooking/dining out department. priorities, i suppose!
grant report: so close!! i can see the finish line from here . . .
