I have had to put a solid block on gym time for my calendar. I feel in a professional environment, that this warrants an explanation as to why I am making zero adjustments to my gym schedule for “important meetings”. I had a block on my calendar about 6 months ago. Since I removed that block I have actually gained close to 25 lbs. Since the removal of that block, my personally observed performance at work has degraded significantly. Exercise per my experiences appears to be a critical component to the optimal performance of myself, particularly my intelligence.
