Last week I had every intention of waking up by 5:30am to meditate and do a quick workout before my kids got up.  But every night at least one of them woke up (usually more than once) and kept me from getting a good night’s sleep, which gave me an easy excuse to “sleep in” until 6:30.  But no more excuses.  I’m posting this here so I have a little accountability to force my hand.  Every day this week I am going to be out of bed by 5:30am.  There, I said it.  I even made myself delete the caveat I had written there to say that I didn’t have to do it if the girls woke up multiple times.  Give me an inch and I’ll take a mile.  Lazy bum.  I’ll post every day with a yay or nay saying whether I did it or not.

In other news, I’m considering trying to us this same motivation to do weekly experiments with myself.  Like this will be one week where I get up extra early, and I’ll see if that’s worth continuing.  Another week I might try to give up all TV to see how that goes.  Or I’ll commit to riding my bike to the coffee shop every day for a week no matter what the weather.  Or I could be vegetarian for a week.  I don’t know, I’m just trying to think of interesting things to try.  Any suggestions?
