Today was day 1 of my 5 day Get Outta Bed Challenge.
I naturally woke up at 6:58 am.
This was not as horrible as I was anticipating. I thought I would wake up at exactly 5:31 am, but my body was kinder to me than I expected.
I did want to stay in bed, of course. I slept with the room a little warmer, but with lighter bed coverings, so I was just the right temperature. If I am too cold, then of course I don’t want to get out of bed. If I am too hot, then sleeping is a miserable fight.
I hit the Goldilocks sweet mine last night. I fell asleep quickly and slept soundly, sans nightmares featuring movie stars.
My morning ritual includes the following:
- Weighing myself
- Putting on robe and slippers
- Boiling water for tea
- Checking emails
- Consuming tea
Today, doing all of those things only cost me about 15 minutes, which meant it was before 7:30 am when I started to work. It was kind of wondrous.
By 9:00 am, I had edited an Excel file, edited a PowerPoint file, written a stellar, but concise email, checked all of my personal emails, and browsed through Anthropologie. I even had enough energy to resist the urge to buy something from Anthro. Talk about a winning morning!
I feel like the rest of my day was good, too. I was energetic, even though I didn’t take any vitamins or B12 tablets until about 2:00 pm. I don’t drink coffee and I only had 2 cups of tea today.
We are off to the races!
