You are aware that weighing yourself day by day won't do you any good? Right?

Start measuring yourself once a week and maybe weigh yourself once a fortnight. Yet again, your capacity for self-sabotage is easily visible.

He of all people needs to do it daily.  Once he slips out of that routine, he'll never get back into it.  He needs to weigh himself and write it down but not obsess over it... it's a conundrum considering he can't do something without obsessing over it, yet he won't do something unless it's part of a consistent pattern (and based on his past, I don't think weekly is enough to be good for a pattern).

He of all people needs to do it daily.  Once he slips out of that routine, he'll never get back into it.  He needs to weigh himself and write it down but not obsess over it... it's a conundrum considering he can't do something without obsessing over it, yet he won't do something unless it's part of a consistent pattern (and based on his past, I don't think weekly is enough to be good for a pattern).

I will be weighing every day and tracking it.  I'm the type of person that HAS to know every day otherwise I get very antsy and am very liable to quit.

____

I have to clock in 12 1/2 hours from now at 6:00 am. I want to be at work by 5:20 so I can get things ready and make sure I'm ready to go at 6:00 am. This means I want to be awake by 4:00. I will definitely need my sleep tonight as I will be embarking on two 11-hour days. I've done it before, but not since last Spring. So, with that said, I'm going to go to bed no later than 8:00 pm tonight - 2 1/2 hours from now. I really am looking forward to the next three days. 11 hour days tomorrow and Thursday and a normal 8 1/2 hour day on Friday.

Normally, I wouldn't get there until 5:45, but they are giving me my permanent desk tomorrow, as well, and I want to get that and get my computer set up before I clock in at 6:00.  Our systems are not the fastest in the west.  We run Windows XP on old Dell computers, which is what the Forest Service runs, as well.

You're acting like you have to prepare for an 11-hour day.  11-hour days are not hard.  I've worked 22 days straight, with at least 4 of those being over 12-hour days and I survived.  You're talking about getting to work 40 minutes early, and " I will definitely need my sleep tonight".  You're making it sound overly dramatic.  How do you have to get up 2 hours early for work?  I wake up an hour before I work, and it takes 20 minutes to drive there plus 15 minutes to walk from the parking lot to the office, so what's taking up this 2 hours of time?

She's overly obsessive, orders way too much product in order to not run out (and I mean WAY too much), posts on Facebook about how hard she works, when she really doesn't work that hard, and tends to complain a lot.  She also gets there insanely early and none of us understand why.

Employers don't like when you come in that early. You make yourself a liability if anything happens and you could also try and claim you were working and deserve pay. So they're not going to be happy when you show up tomorrow.

Um... Shower, Bible Study, Morning News.  If you do the math from 8:00 pm to 4:00 am, that's only 8 hours sleep.  I'm not talking about a dramatic increase in sleep tonight.  I normally get 7 1/2 hours on a work night anyway, so its just an extra half hour.  Waking up at 4:00 am still only gives me 75 minutes before I want to leave.  Thursday morning, I probably won't get up or get to work quite as early.  I might sleep until 4:30 and get to work by 5:40.

They know we have slow systems and it takes time to get all our systems up and running.  Plus, getting a brand new desk might take some time, as well.  40 minutes early is not extremely early by any stretch of the imagination.

Personally, Gramps, I am ready to get back to 8 hour plus work days.  The holidays were fun and all, but now its time to get down to serious business.  No, 11 hour days are not extraordinarily long.  Remember, I work 6-5 at Dell in OKC for 4 months from the beginning October 2011 to beginning February 2012.  I also worked 8-7 shortly after I got hired on permanent.  I have no doubt I will be able to handle it.  8 hours sleep is not an enormous amount of sleep and is really only a half hour to an hour more than what I get on most work nights anyway.  I'm not dreading the 11 hour days, at all, in fact I'm looking forward to them.  It will be extremely busy both days (Wednesday busier than Thursday) so the time will go by really fast.  Next week, I'll work some overtime, as well.  Monday is supposed to be another busy day, so I'll probably work 6-4 Monday-Thursday and work the normal 6:00-2:30 on Friday.  That would give me 6 hours overtime, the equivalent of 9 normal hours.  That is an extra $100 on my paycheck.  If I can do that both weeks, that's an extra $200.

So you don't normally come in earlier than 15 minutes early?

15-20 minutes early 4 days a week.  Its the slowest when I shut the computer down over night, and I do that every Friday night.  So, Monday mornings I would normally go in 30 minutes early, and the next 4 days maybe 20 minutes early.

So, it changed from 15 minutes to 15-20 minutes to 30 minutes on Mondays and 20 minutes on every other day.  So the 15 minutes was a lie?

No, because occasionally I get there 10 minutes early.  It averages out to 15 minutes.

It really takes your computer 30 minutes to start up after shut down over the weekend?  How on earth could you use it to provide tech support if it's that slow?

Part of that 30 is spent going to the restroom and getting a Diet Dr. Pepper first thing to lubricate my throat.  So, maybe 20 minutes is spent getting the computer ready on Monday's, and about 5-8 minutes is spent the rest of the week.

It takes you 10 minutes to pee and get a pop?  Pee at home and bring a drink from home... it'd save money.
