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?
