I'm 3 days late in posting this - but mostly b/c it was the weekend and I had friends over, and tons of sunshine and very little humidity and a family day and a date night. So my life was taken over with these things and the opportunity to write about this wasn't on the forefront of my mind.
But now it's Monday - a day that I fought very Very VERY hard to get up early to start. I went to bed last night debating whether I should set my alarm early or not, debating whether it's worth it to get up. Thinking this week maybe I'll just relax about it! But 6 AM rolled around, my husband gave a very very sensitive nudge and I rolled out of bed. I got up, read my Bible and spent some time with my God and went for a 4 mile run. Boy did I NOT want to do it since last night!
But you know - once I was showered, Richard's lunch made and a cup of coffee in my body - I think -Boy, I'm super glad I got up, super glad I stayed disciplined, and I know all day long I will be a happier person b/c I got my reading and exercise in already. I'm ready mentally, physically and spiritually to face what the day holds.
I say this b/c I think this past month was the hardest for me to stay disciplined in getting up. I can't quite figure it out. schedules were a little different with the trips that we took. Richard has been leaving a little earlier for work on a lot of days and it's been SUPER hot even in the mornings.
But Most mornings I got up, most mornings I stayed disciplined and I can honestly say from experience, I feel so much better when I stay determined to be disciplined. and not make excuses for myself. So it's been 5 months since I've started this new "challenge" that I hope to make a lifestyle.
How are you doing? Is it getting easier or did you hit a wall like me?
