5 Months

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?

I'm so glad you did it anyway! That's when it's really worth it, when we don't feel like it! Good job and keep up the good work!!!

Good for you for doing it even when everything in your body was asking you not to! i have been running lately & i know for myself tying to fit it in in the morning can feel like torture. Good job!
