I tried out a new work schedule this week; I’m staying at work the two evenings per week that Kyle has activities that I don’t share. Not that surprisingly, I got a lot more done and I felt great about it! Working longer days increases productivity better than linearly. Also, a bunch of awesome things happened at work:
- I attempted an experiment that worked on the first try!
- I wrote a portion of a grant proposal and my advisor said he liked the figure I made.
- My coworker sent me a paper about a method I can use for an idea my advisor wants me to explore and I’m really excited to try it out.
I started to transition to the Primal lifestyle a few weeks ago and it’s going fantastic. I’ve changed the types of food I eat in terms of macronutrients and grain and legume elimination and started going to be earlier, but I haven’t gone totally organic or gotten my workouts going at the proper frequency and intensity. Kyle and I have been getting into lots of arguments about the price of food – one of them precipitated by me buying eggs at the farmer’s market for $4/dozen.
