4:50 AM: Woke up early. Knew it was too early. Went back to bed.
6:20 AM: Woke up before alarm. Victory.
7:15 AM: Starbucks at Hudson & 10th.
8:22 AM: Instagram posting change. Now placing The City between pictures of my fashions.
8:27 AM: Latest post on JoJo’s Jots.
8:28 AM: Back to work.
9:41 AM: JoJo’s Jot: The key is to keep moving.
9:58 AM: Discovered that Starbucks refills are $0.50 any size whether small or medium or Venti was purchased originally.
10:18 AM: One can only be at peace if they give all their worries to God.
4:18 PM: Lunch at Starbucks is cheaper than most places. I’d like to start running on Chelsea Piers in addition to Central Park. Will plan for that in the near future.
4:42 PM: When 4:30 PM hits, I enter my: “Journal & Five Accomplishments” journal. I accomplished more today that I have in quite some time and am very proud of myself.
4:49 PM: I’m feeling Columbus Circle Whole Foods, Equinox, & Central Park run in the sun.
6:00 PM: Change of plans, I decide to run on The Hudson and it is the best decision I’ve ever made in running. I first briskly walk through West Village, cross 11th ave, and hit the piers. It’s a gorgeous day outside and there are plenty of bikes, scooters, kids & their families, dogs, and of course runners. I pass great restaurants that are packed, especially down at Vogue & One World Trade Center.
There’s soccer, basketball, tennis, a sports arena, sand volleyball, and even putt putt golf. There’s an AVP Pro Beach Volleyball tournament happening as well as I near 16th St. Pier 40 looks neat as well. I accidentally ran into some yachts which were quite beautiful.
7:30 PM: I wrap up my run and head straight to Chelsea Market: The Manhattan Fruit Market underground and have beef, sushi, turkey meatballs, Quinoa, a pepper, rice, and beans but this time in a half box. Dessert is a cup this time rather than a full bin of yogurt, blueberries, oranges, pecans, and granola.
As I wrap up my parfait there are wonderful restaurants near the High Line I’d love to go to when I’m living off of my dividends: Artichoke Pizza & The Park. At night, Chelsea is packed with 20-30 something year olds and some bars too with just the music keeps me at a distance.
8:00 PM: I hit the sauna and showers at Equinox High Line. I recognize here I can withstand three full steam cycles. I also teach myself how to use a MasterLock as I never learned as a kid for my locker.
8:30 PM: Bed
More to come! -JoJo
