Life style change

Just don't laugh at me you'll know this isn't easy when are at my age!

Nobody has full control of his/her life style because we are not living alone in an island. I need a healthier life style with more exercise.

I drive to work which I don't need to because I'm not living many miles away from office. I have tried a few times taking underground home which wasn't difficult. So why do I still drive to work, it's free to me and laziness is the only answer. However I may need to invest in an 'in-ear' earphone since I can't really listen to my iPod while traveling on the train. Driving up the volume will surely cause another problem.

I don't have that much outdoor works in the last 5/6 years hence really not much stretching of arms and legs. My boy demands my attention as well at home after work as he enters primary school this year. My only choices are


  1. swimming before work

  2. jogging/walking before work

  3. jogging/walking during weekend with family

  4. gym after work


(1) isn't sustainable because winter is approaching (2) is possible but I need life style change, i.e. sleep early (3) I've been doing that from time to time (4) not sustainable, may fail easily and money down the drain.

My plan now is going for (2) hence I need to adjust my life style. I'll have to stop watching late news before sleep and try getting up early enough perhaps once per week at the beginning then increase the frequency gradually. There are quiet hilly walk with very little traffic where I could walk for 30 minutes or so in the morning.

I also need to stop spending time at the computer at home. If I need to work on my server or do something at the sites I manage I'll have to do that before going home. My firewalled corporate network here doesn't allow me to ssh into my server. Mobile broadband service like this or that would fit me. I have been with Netvigator for ages (since the stone age of 56k via phone wire) but their current offer is really ridicules to me. I wrote to them today


Dear support,

Can you confirm that I'm currently not tied to any contract/commitment and I can cancel my broadband account without penalty?

I wanna go mobile broadband but your plan sounds ridiculous to me since I must be a home broadband user to enjoy it but who needs both?

Look forward to your confirmation ASAP.


I'll see what they'll say to me.
