Close but not quite …

I’m not sure whether I love or loathe my internal body clock. Today I am definitely leaning towards the LOATHE. I was supposed to be able to sleep in this morning. And by sleeping in I mean that I could get up at 7 am instead of 5 am if I wanted. But my body wanted no part of that idea. It has easily retuned to its’ early riser back-to-school and training mode (my natural state) with gusto. And apparently, 4 am is the new 5 am. I guess it’s similar. Sorta. But it’s definitely not 7 am. Ugh.

Well, I hope you all have a day where it’s close but not quite!!!

ZONK OUT …

We are on day two of the Daylight Savings aftermath. HA! And for some strange reason I woke up at 4:40 a.m. which was our old 3:40 a.m. I was wide awake too. This isn’t how it usually works. I’m not usually awake earlier, I’m usually struggling to wake up “on time”! At least that is how it has gone in past years. But I guess not this year. Which is weird. And confusing. And makes me think that this may all come back to haunt me later today.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t ZONK OUT!!!

Thinking too much …

I was up pretty late last night and for some strange reason, this morning, I woke up SUPER early. I even gave myself permission last night to “sleep in”. Whatever THAT looks like to a typically early riser on a normal busy Friday morning. HA! Anyway, I also woke up WHOLE body tired. You know that feeling? It’s definitely NOT pleasant. UGH. So my question to myself is WHY? If I’m THIS tired ALL OVER and I can get a little extra sleep, then WHY THE HECK am I awake?!?! I blame my brain. Oy.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t think too much!!!

FOMO …

We are out of town celebrating Sidney, my oldest daughter, this weekend. And we are taking a few extra days to do it, HA! In situations like this it never fails. My body is energized and ready to PARTAY! It doesn’t matter how late I stay up, I wake up early the next day. Like my body and mind are screaming WHAT’S NEXT?!?! Trust me, I would LOVE to sleep in like normal people. But I think my body is worried it’s going to miss something important if we sleep an extra hour or two. Yes body, we will miss a few things … like the undead hours of the day and unopened coffee shops … OY.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t have an innate fear of missing out!!!

The undead hours, some coffee and a little productivity …

I woke up insanely early again this morning. I can get used to this. I actually have to, HA! With school starting soon for Libs and Reese, my workouts will be back at the “undead” hours again. Not that I mind it, I actually prefer it. I love the quiet of the early morning. It truly is my ME time. And I think, after all these years of the back-to-school schedule changes, that my body just naturally switches back to that “clock”. So instead of fighting to fall back to sleep this morning I made myself some coffee, wrote emails, reviewed and added events to our calendars, finalized everything for my (hopefully soon to be) Yoga Instructor Certification and worked on the details to a few trips we have planned. And I got it all done with no interruptions. Because let’s face it, most of the earth is still asleep that early on a Sunday morning.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you drink coffee and feel productive!!!

Up and at it at undead hours …

I woke up at 4 a.m. today. I was WIDE awake but I decided to stay in bed until it was an acceptable hour to run. I’ve mentioned before that my neighborhood wakes fairly early. I am often the first one out there, but it’s usually within a few minutes of running that “Good Mornings” are exchanged with neighbors who are also out starting their day. Four in the morning, however, is pushing it. As understanding and supportive my neighbors may be of my running and training, no one wants their light sensors triggered and dogs barking that early. Unless of course it was a real threat of vampires and werewolves in the area, HA!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are up and at it at undead hours!!!

I wondered why …

I woke up at about 5:00am this morning. Sad for a weekend! I wasn’t tired anymore and, as much as I tried, I couldn’t fall back to sleep. At 7:00am I gave up altogether figuring Reese would be awake soon.

But that was not the case … and I was baffled.

Then the ugly truth it HIT ME. Daylight Savings. EW. And even more EW was the realization that my 5:00am wake-up was ACTUALLY our old 4:00AM! Ugh …

Well, I hope you all have a day where you figure it out!!!
