Well, if week 2 of the Early to Rise Challenge is any indication ...I am just not a morning person and probably will never be. However, I did have a strike or two against me this week.
1. My husband is out of town and I always have a harder time going to sleep at night when he's not home. This week was no exception. I never feel worried or afraid, I'm just wide awake. It's annoying. And 2. I'm wondering if taking Zyrtec late at night (bedtime) is giving me that dragging feeling in the mornings. I'm supposed to take it for a month to clear up some fluid I have behind one ear and the doctor said I should just take it at bedtime since it makes one sleepy. I have not personally noticed feeling any sleepier right at bedtime, but since it's a 24-hr pill I'm wondering if it's causing me to have problems waking up.
I need something to blame, right? ha!
So here's my run down of each morning this past week:
Friday: woke up extra early to get hubby off to the airport and enjoyed some quiet time in-between then and getting the kids ready for our homeschool group meeting later that morning.
Saturday: slept in ...enough said.
Sunday: overslept (thank you, Daylight Savings Time), but still made it to church in plenty of time.
Monday: dragged myself out of bed at a not-so-early hour--Mondays are hard for me for some reason.
Tuesday: the whole family overslept (what is going on??)
Wednesday: I actually got up early (for me ...apparently not for everyone else in this challenge who keep posting photos of their clocks at 5:30 am!!)
Thursday: I officially feel like a loser with this challenge
And when I say "slept-in" I'm talking 8-8:30, not 10 or anything, but that's almost never before my son wakes up, of course, and that's what I really want to do. When he wakes up he's full-throttle the moment he jumps out of bed. Me ...it takes me a couple of hours to really get going. And I really don't like to talk to people when I first get up. Really. But that doesn't work out for me very well.
BUT, I'm not giving up at week 2. We'll see what week 3 is like first.
