I'm not quite sure how I made it through the day. 4 yo DD couldn't sleep last night, so I was exhausted today! Somehow, I managed 30 minutes of exercise and still did okay on the food but I have much less self control when I'm tired. I can't wait to get back on track tomorrow!

I talked myself into getting up early again by reminding myself that that was all I had to do - just get out of bed. Nothing else. Getting out of bed was my success. So I finally made my way into the kitchen and started coffee and thought, "What do I do now?" I was already dressed (another good habit I gained last year is getting completely dressed as soon as I get out bed). So I was standing in the kitchen, dressed to the shoes, and thought, "Well I might as well exercise. I don't have to be fully alert yet to get on the exercise bike." So I did. 30 minutes on the bike and 30 minutes on the Gazelle. Then I was able to shower, get dressed and have the kids all up and fed by 7:30am!
My habit is still just getting out of bed at 5:30 every morning but it's nice to know that I was able to accomplish so much for it!

Today, I finally woke up at 5:30am! That is my goal for this month. Simply to get up early every day. Nothing else. Ultimately, I'd like to get up and exercise every morning but I will not be that strict on myself right now. Once I can make getting up early a habit, then I'll add the exercise. I just don't want to berate myself if I get up early one morning and don't get the exercise done. Baby steps! And if I take a bigger step occasionally, then I'll just be extra happy.
(I did actually exercise this morning, though, and I was showered and dressed by 7am. It was awesome!)

I finally made my little motivational collage thing last night. It is my laptop background, which is why the dimensions are a little strange. So now I get to see it every morning when I log in.
I could not talk myself into getting up early to exercise. (I usually get my exercise in the afternoon when the kids are napping.) I wrote down why I want to exercise and left the note by my bed so, hopefully, it will help me get up tomorrow morning!
