A few new rules in place for this semester:
On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays I get up as close to 6am as I can and continue with my 100 pushups program (this is week 2 of the 6 week program.
I follow the pushups with increasing time on my step machine and my rowing machine.
I follow that exercise with creative writing for at least 300 words.
Throughout this, I do not check email, Twitter, Facebook, or my RSS feeds until AFTER I have completed my writing and I listen to either birdsong radio or instrumental music until after writing.
