No matter how many times I try, I am just NOT a morning person. I woke up early to get in a run or do some other type of exercise, but I still feel so tired, and lazy and I kind of just want to go back to bed. I’m awake, shouldn’t that be enough to get me out the door? Apparently not.
I love my bed, I love sleeping, but I love running and the way it makes me feel even more! I attempt to wake up every day and do something, but 4 times out of 5, I hit the snooze and go back to sleep muttering I will run tonight.
Doesn’t this look amazing?!
Maybe my problem is not having some kind of schedule or plan. I woke up this morning planning on doing something, but since I am unsure exactly what that something is, it causes me to dilly dally even more. I have a hard time waking up every single day. Well, not on the weekends, but that’s different. I’m always SO tired and I never want to jump out of bed and start my day.
It’s hard not to compare myself to others on this note. How does everyone else seemingly get out of bed so easily in the morning. I desperately want to be a morning runner, I basically have to be come marathon training time. How do you guys do it?
I feel like I HAVE to get 8 hours of sleep every night and if I don’t, there’s my excuse not to get up early and work out. Should I be conditioning myself to function on less than 8 hours? I hear of some people going to bed at 9/9:30 and that just seems crazy to me! I work 10 to 6, get home by 6:45 and then head to the gym or go for a run, and I’m usually back by 8 at the latest. Then I am left wondering what to eat for dinner at 8:15 at night. This is when I decide I NEED to start running in the morning and then the cycle repeats itself.
Since we’re talking about sleeping, my husband and I did just buy a new bed! We bought it off of our friend/co-worker who just bought a house and was trying to get rid of it. It’s practically brand new and was only slept in once. The best part? It’s Queen sized! Yep, we have a real adult bed now and it’s amazing and huge! Uh, just talking about it makes me want to crawl back into bed with my husband and go back to sleep for 20 minutes. Do I like sleep too much?
So, tell me. What is your sleeping schedule like? Does it work for you or are you constantly struggling like I am?
