* Today, I realized that I had committed to something that I forgot to put on my calendar, and that this commitment conflicted with my gym time (which, yay me, I had actually written in on my calendar). I could have rearranged my schedule so that I could do the commitment and go to the gym, but it would have cut into my research time. So I pretended to forget about the commitment and I went to the gym. Mental and physical health 1, tenure and promotion 0.
* Also gym related: I was having not just a good hair day, but a once-in-a-lifetime fabulous hair day. And my gym time was scheduled before another meeting. How to keep the fabulous hair for the meeting and reap the benefits of exercise---what's a girl to do? So, I showered after my workout, but did not wash my hair. Eeeeew. (But the hair still does look fabulous!)
* Sometimes, when I shut my office door, it's to keep my colleagues away more so than to keep the students away.
