So far, so good

Well, I got myself out of bed again this morning. Two days in a row. I really hope I can keep this up because I really love getting going in the morning. I love waking up and shaking my head out of the fog BEFORE my kids come looking for me. I love getting exercise out of the way so I don't have to worry about doing it all day long. I love being dressed and ready for the day while it can still be considered morning. I love having my afternoons free (while the kids are napping and Will's at school) to catch up on housework, reading or veg on the computer instead of the exercise I have been doing. I do love it. I feel like I've accomplished something and for a stay-at-home-mom, that can be a real treat.

I'll be honest though, I've attempted to do things like this before and never lasted much more than a week. So, we'll see and I'll admit when I'm beat. But somehow, this time feels a little different. Perhaps it's because it's public. Perhaps that the almost 80 lbs I've lost has really boosted my energy level. Perhaps it because it's the kind of person I want to be for when Will starts Grade 1. I dunno...but wish me luck!


  1. great job! I'm with you on the feeling of accomplishment...isn't it nice! You can do it and I'm sure all of this online accountability will help tons! I probably would have quit all together if I hadn't created myself such a great network of encouragers (you included!).

  2. I'm just jealous that getting up at 5:45 means that you actually HAVE time to yourself... my kids get up at 6am. I don't think that 15 mins would do me much good!

    You're a pro!

  3. oh my..5:45 huh.


    you continue to put me in awe Amanda!!
