You could say that mornings and I have some issues. I’m pretty much useless in the mornings until about 10am. I don’t have any facts as to why I function better after 10, other than I just do.
Well this morning I was being a nanny and have to be over to the house by 6:15, which means I am getting up and needing to be useful well before I want too. The alarm went off at 5:15, because I know that I’m hitting the snooze several times so better start the wake up process a bit earlier than need be. I had a second alarm set for 5:30, which is pretty much the time I must get up and moving. I need to get the dogs and myself taken care of before heading out the door by 6. I did manage to drag myself out of bed and get things going.
Now the best part about this nanny job is it’s split into a morning and an afternoon shift. The morning shift is over by 9. So usually I bring myself home and curl back up in bed, yeah it’s not a problem for me to go back to sleep after being up and active. Did I mention I love sleep.
This morning, I told myself no! I was not going back to sleep after getting home, I was going to work out, and you know what I did. I’m pretty proud of myself that’s something big. Why, you ask well I really like sleep, and I really dislike working out. But, this morning I sucked it up and did a workout from my Learn 2 Run program, and promptly followed that up with 20 minutes of yoga. Oh, and holy cannoli am I not flexible at all. Yikes! Looks like yoga will be a thing I will be sticking with for a while.
So, I’d like to say to this early morning, Ha, I kicked your ass! Of course now it’s 8pm and I am ready for bed, but hey I did something today that usually I won’t even consider.
Happy Friday and hope you have an enjoyable weekend.
