5AM - Day 1

Well, it's 6:15AM and I've done yoga, had breakfast, read my devotion for the day and am completely ready for work.  It's a good feeling, but I'm not gonna eyes are already tired!  I think it will take some time for my body to get use to...
I was so tempted to turn the alarm off and go back to sleep for another hour, but I knew that my friend, Joy, would be text me, just about the time i got my lazy self up, she text me to make sure I was up!  I'm SO glad I had motivation - otherwise, I would have stayed curled up and nice and warm next to the hubby!

It is nice that I have an hour before I need to leave the house to do whatever I want :)  Which will probably be loading the dishwasher or ironing my man's uniform.  

5AM is early..but it feels good!

Is that a Challenge? I think so....

5AM. I have always called this a "ungodly" hour. For years, that has been my true feelings on this hour of the morning ( that even morning yet?!).

Today, I ran across this video, and now I feel challenged...So watch this video, and then read the rest of the post.

After I watched this I just say there and felt that I really need to try this. My day usually consists of waking up a 6:15, and leaving the house by 6:50 to get to work. While I can make it happen, I never feel very put together at work. I"m always rushing through getting ready, may or may not have time for breakfast, and may or may not have time to read my devotion for the day. I have NO time to put on laundry, or unload the dishwasher, or through something in the crock pot for dinner. The by the time i get home in the evenings, I don't want to work out, I don't want to cook, I don't want to clean..I just want to sit on my bum and be lazy. I been feeling like the Lord has been dealing with my in the area of laziness. I can't believe I'm admitting it, bu tit's true..sometimes I do just feel SO dang lazy!
And I'm sick of it. So...Maybe this is what I need? Maybe I don't need something this extreme, but I'm willing to try anything! So, my plan is that for the rest of this week (and I'm talking week days) and then next M-F, I will be

1. Setting out my work clothes the day before
2. Going to bed by 9:30
3. Setting my alarm for 5am
4. Doing my 30 minutes of yogo
5. Eating breakfast, or at least preparing it to take to work
6. Reading in my devotional
7. Putting on laundry, or doing dishes
8. Since I'm not one for writing in a journal, will blog on here at least 3 mornings a week

That's my challenge to myself! At the end of this, if I feel like waking up at 5 is improving my whole day, I will probably continue this.

Wish me luck! I am SO not a morning person! gah!

New Blog

So, I just recently revived an old blog from my singles days, but just today i realized I needed a new email address, and before I got to deep into a blog, decided to have one linked to my new address.  So, here we are :)  Welcome - and I promise this is the last time I change my blog address for many years!
