Insanity in the mornings: Help me wake up!
I’ve been going to bed early, yet I am having so much trouble waking up in the mornings. Last night was Ali’s first night unswaddled and she did GREAT. I hope she can keep up the magic. She slept 8 straight hours and as soon as she started stirring I ran into her room to feed her since it was workout time. Yet when I got back to the room I had to go snuggle up back in bed for a few minutes. I finally dragged myself out to do today’s workout.
I’ve lost my workout mojo. Can you help me find it? I’m excited to exercise, but since I have/want to do it before the kids get up I need to get up early. And now that I’m back to work (today is my first official day back) I need to get up extra early. My start time for work is 6 AM so that I can take Fridays off and half of Mondays to be with the kids.
There are a lot of big things happening today:
1. It’s Trig’s birthday! He is a young 34 years old. You know you’re getting older when you have to actually do the math to know how old your husband is. I had to do it three times because I couldn’t believe he is already 34 years old. We have been married for almost 4 years already. Crazy.
2. Like I said earlier, it was Ali’s first night unswaddled! I’m so proud of her. She really did well and I think she would have slept even longer if I didn’t want to feed her before working out.
3. It’s my first day back to work.
4. We started night training Raffi. I figure if I might be up with the unswaddled baby already I might as well also night train. I put a Pull-Up on top of his undies to contain any accidents and make my life easier.
I thought I’d be up all night, but I wasn’t. I slept from about 10 PM- 4:30 AM and had to draggggggg myself downstairs. Any tips? I’m motivated to work out, but I just can’t stop myself from hitting the snooze button.
