Waking up early...Day one

I did it. I woke up shortly before six a.m. (two hours before I usually do) and got a lot of editing done. I have to admit that it was not easy and when the alarm went off, I was tempted to change my mind.
As my eyes refused to open, I played with the idea of starting the new schedule tomorrow instead of today. But then I thought that if I didn't do it today, I never will.

I finally dragged myself out of bed and to the living room table, wishing I were a coffee person (that will never happen). I switched on the computer, surrounded myself with my reference books, and tuned into an online radio. Then I just dived in without wasting too much thinking about it. It worked.

When I resurfaced, I had reached my goal for the day and was so proud of myself. I even squeezed in a few minutes of exercise before leaving for the office.

I must say, I actually love this. I feel fantastic and energetic. I can imagine myself becoming a morning person after all. I love the feeling of having accomplished so much before my day begins.

Thanks for the encouragement, dear friends.


  1. The first morning is always the hardest. Congratulations!

  2. Ha ha! Good job! I used to wake up early to go running. That didn't last very long. I'm a night person, but with practice I'm sure I could do it if I REALLY wanted to :)

    Oh yes it is the hardest. I'm glad I got through it.

    J.L. Campbell, thanks so much.

    I think I wouldn't keep it up with getting up to go running. I'm not very good at exercise. I used to run marathons in high school but hated the training. Right now, I'm forcing myself to start doing sport again.
