So lately I’ve been stressing a little. I’ve been stressing about how I’m going to get 2 kids in bed before 8:30 and still workout, make dinner and give baths all after work.
I didn’t go to the gym last night and doing all the other things had me getting E down at 8:30. That’s when I really realized just how important it is going to be to TRY to become a morning person. Having that done by the time the day starts is going to free up my nights to do all the other stuff that has to be done.
Now, realize, I know there is NO way I’m going to be able to do this while school is still going on. I do all my studying after E goes to bed. So that’s basically, 9:30 – 11:30 p.m.. Then I get to sleep and end up getting almost 7 1/2 hours but every day I wake up dragging. You would’ve thought I was functioning on 4 or 5 hours of sleep.
Then last night something happened…E woke up at about 5:00ish and instead of dragging my butt out of bed, to go get him, I found myself instantly wide awake. There was no yawning, no slow moving. It was like I could have gone to run right then and there.
As I was rocking E back to sleep (because it’s way easier to get ready for work with him asleep), I started to think…am I getting too much sleep? Is there a natural wake up time for my body that doesn’t leave me groggy? Do I operate better on less sleep? Weird thing is, I never wake up early…NEVER. So if this is some natural wake up time for my body, it seems to be ignoring it too.
It did give me a little glimmer of hope that maybe, just maybe one day I could be a morning person. So I ask the morning crew…
What time do you go to sleep? What time do you wake up? How does your morning go? How much of a workout do you actually get in? How long does it then take you to get ready for your day?
I’m just curious, how I would go about getting myself organized enough to do this.
