The 5:00 AM challenge (16/30)

Well, my challenge to get up at 5:00 AM every day is proving harder than I thought it would (which is why it’s a challenge, right?).

Yesterday I revealed my success score so far in this challenge has been 75%… not something to be proud of!

And you’d think that with a success score like that I’d pull up my bootstraps and try harder.

Well, last night I went out with a friend to see Mad Max: Fury Road 3D at the theater. The movie started at 10:20 PM; I didn’t get home until 12:45 AM and I was still pretty amped up on post-apocalyptic adrenaline and caffeine. I didn’t get to bed until 1:30 AM and I didn’t fall asleep until closer to 3:00 AM. Somewhere in there I realized that I wouldn’t be able to function on 2 hours of sleep today so I turned off my alarm.

I got up just after 9:00 AM this morning. So I missed my goal yet again (but Mad Max was awesome, so there’s that!)
