Between school and working two jobs, the mornings are the only time I’m able to get my workout in. Ah..but as soon as I hear the sound of my obnoxious alarm ringing in my ear, I immediate hit the dreaded snooze button. Sometimes I’m not even conscious I’ve punched it. I’ll eventually look at the clock and think, “Crap! I’m not even going to have time to do a push up now!” I can’t tell you how many times my snooze has ruined plans of getting up early. There are just some mornings that I can’t even find the energy to fall out of bed. I’ve thought about working out in the evenings, but by the time I get home I’m exhausted. Plus, I’m pretty sure working out before bed keeps you from getting a good night sleep (or at least it’s harder to fall asleep).
Anyways, I’ve been having the battle with my snooze for the past couple days now. I’m normally pretty good about lighting a fire under my butt and getting out of bed, but this morning was especially difficult. I had a midterm today and wanted to get time in to study for that as well. I woke up, but later than I had intended, so I had the choice of either studying or working out… obviously school won that battle. Tomorrow will be the day I get back into the swing of things. I’m actually positioning my alarm clock across the room, so I’ll have to get up anyways to turn it off and won’t be hitting it in my sleep. I might even set it a few minutes fast, so I trick myself into thinking it’s later than it actually is.
I feel ridiculous having to even do all that, but I guess whatever it takes! Like I said, I think I’ve just had so much going on between work and school that my motivation to get up early has left. And maybe it wasn’t such a bad thing that I’ve gotten some sleep the past couple days. My body probably needed a break and I guess it’s good to listen to your body. I just can’t let that snooze button sabotage all my morning plans!
