A couple of months ago, I left my career at the corporation and started my own business. I am working out of my office in my house.
I hadn't thought of the fact that I would not be bicycle commuting across town anymore.
Now, I wake up, do the hygiene stuff, and "walk to the office" with my slippers on.
I sit and sit at my desk all day. After a couple of weeks, I didn't feel so good. I figured out that it was due to lack of daily physical activity. I used to bicycle about 40 minutes to work and then back every day.
So now, I have to get something like that back into my routine. I guess the cool thing is that I could bicycle around in the morning and pick a new destination each time.
It is more difficult to get the discipline to do that than you might think. When you work for yourself, work beckons you 24/7 - or at least it does for me, I guess because I am new at it, I haven't yet developed the work/life balance.
Anyway, I sure miss my bicycle commute. I used to bike even in the worst of weather and take some pride in that.
Oh well. Maybe I can pick a fictional "employer" each week and bicycle to that place and back in the mornings and afternoons.
