I need to learn to maximize my time a little better. Health is so important, and lately it's been nagging at me that I can do more. I NEED to do MORE.
Planning is part of it, and in that respect I'm definitely doing MUCH better than in years past. My diet hasn't really suffered too much since Spring chaos has tornadoed into my house - but exercise is still hovering slightly above non-existent.
I know I could fit in a better workout (or just a workout - period) if I just got up earlier and stayed up a little later. I think if I could just get into the swing, the exercise would give me more energy and I could break the cycle.
It's just so HARD. I tend to be a lazy person by nature, and I take relaxation VERY seriously. :) I know there's gotta be at least 16-17 useable hours in a day, and right now I probably only use about 14 or 15 of them. In my case, a lot of that is sleep (maybe like 9 or ten hours of it, I know – I know!).
Do any of you busy bees have advice on getting into the habit of becoming an (even earlier) morning riser? How do you push yourself when all you're thinking is "my joints hurt, the baby kept me up last night, work is so stressful..." - insert excuse here?
