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.

  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.

    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.
