Of course, this plan only works if I wake up at the time I need to wake up. In other words, I have to get out of bed when the alarm goes off.
Even if I fell asleep on the couch for several hours and only "went to bed" (like in my actual bed) a few hours ago.
Even if it's still dark outside.
Even if it's really cold outside my bed but inside my bed is nice and warm and cozy.
Even if the kitties are all snuggly and warm and happy.
You can clearly see my problem, right?
My motivation dissipates in cold weather...which is bad news since cold weather and dark (or dark grey) is about to become the norm for, oh, the next 7 months.
So...tomorrow I try again. (yes, I'm going to go ahead and call today a failure on the new routine front, since I didn't get up until around the time I should have been finishing up the second spurt of writing this morning....) Wish me luck.
