The problem I'm having right now is being too tired after work. Even when I get off early, I just can't get myself out the door, partly because the traffic around here has become scary at that time of day, and partly because I'm sick of doing laps. SO, getting up early would solve my problems. And I don't actually get any sleep after 5am, I just hang out being lazy, and I know it.
When did this happen to me? Stupid question; it was gradual. It's even affecting my reading! It's taking me forever to get through a book, because I keep falling asleep.
This is obviously an emergency. So, I have the alarm clock in the other room set, and beside it I have my running clothes, with the message Don't you DARE go back to bed!!!! Just. Get. Dressed. Because really, this can be broken down into a couple steps
1. When the alarm goes off, I will be absolutely obligated to rush out of bed and turn it off, since Ekim will still be in bed. (I must remember to be thankful for not having sleeping children.)
2. All I have to do then is put on my clothes and put in my eyes.
Warning: If I go back to bed, Ekim will be rightfully annoyed, since he is off work this week and didn't need to be disturbed for nothing.
Sometime, in the distant past, someone told me that if you did something ten times, it became a habit. Sounds daunting, but, as with everything else, it needs to be a one day at a time thing.
Tomorrow is the first weekday of fall. Should be crispy in the morning.
