Our new mattress is great, but it has one big flaw: it’s too comfortable. It is getting increasingly harder to get out of bed in the morning. Yesterday, I didn’t get up until 8, but I excused it by running at lunch. Today, though, no running before work AND I didn’t run at lunch AND I’m not running this evening. This has to stop!
I am seriously considering using my other phone as my alarm clock and leaving it across the room. Not running in the morning is practically a crime this time of year – it’s finally cool enough to be really pleasant running weather, and I KNOW I’ll regret not taking advantage of this when it gets cold….I said this about being outside yesterday, didn’t I? At least I’m consistent. And if guilt is what it takes to get me up and moving and outside in the mornings (and any time the weather is nice), then I guess I’ll just have to deal with that. Future Me will feel worse about missing out on this weather in amounts far higher than Present Me’s short-lived feelings of contentment about staying in bed. Present Me really needs to be more considerate of Future Me. Past Me has learned that lesson, but Present Me doesn’t always listen.
