Day 4: Success*

I was out of bed at 5:32am.  Close enough that I’m going to count it.  Gia had a rough night last night…she refused to sleep, screaming and telling me to leave the room.  But then she’d cry louder when I left, so I’d have to go back in.  FUN AND GAMES.

On a brighter note, I told her yesterday that it was going to rain, and her response was “The rain water will help the flowers grow.  And the sun too”

Day 3: Success

Out of bed at 5:29, after a carefully timed “one more” press of the snooze button.

I think the most important thing I’m getting out of being awake before everyone else is just the time for me to sit and be lazy without impacting anyone.  Maybe I’m a little more tired when I get out of bed than if I’d stayed in until 6:30 or 7, but at least now I can sit and zone out with my coffee without worrying that I should be paying attention to the girls, or helping Jen get her stuff ready to go to work.

And on the opposite end from lazy, I’m also trying to do the 30 day challenge from the 7 Minute Workout app.  I missed yesterday, but picking it back up again today.  Time to go do that now.

Day 1: Success

I was out of bed at 5:30 this morning.  👍

I tried this new coffee this morning.  It’s instant coffee blended with a couple varieties of mushrooms.  Doesn’t taste great (it’s not bad, it’s just not the nice coffee I’m used to), but it did give me a huge energy burst right away.  Although it didn’t last all day like they claim…but that may be more tied to my lack of sleep the night before, and my pre-existing caffeine addiction.
