This whole getting up at 5:15 every morning thing is wearing thin. I like working out in the morning MUCH more than doing it at night, but 5:15 is just SO EARLY. I’m 36 years old – I shouldn’t feel like I’m up past my bedtime at 9. It’s 8:34 right now, and I can feel the anxiety creeping in. I’d better start getting ready for bed so I can be falling sleep by 9 or a little after. I know I need about 8 hours every night, but worrying about not getting enough sleep doesn’t exactly help.
Good news, though: the end is in sight. We just have to make it to August. We’ll continue getting up this early most mornings as long as we live here and belong to this gym. The 6am class is the class we can get to before work, with the instructor we like, and the other people we know and like, so we’ll stick it out. Even if we’re working from home before then. We might not go that early EVERY day if we’re working from home, but instructor, people, etc. We’ll do it sometimes.
Once we’re really working from home, we’ll have more control over the work-day schedule. No commute? That’s sleep-in time! No office clothes or office people? The post-workout shower can wait a bit. More sleep-in time!
But speaking of sleeping, it’s 8:43 now, and I need to get ready for bed.
