Well that was kind of an ignominious end to the 5:00 AM challenge.
Last night I was still feeling sick so I took some medicine and went to bed. I ended up sleeping until 8:30 this morning! Even now (at about 9:45 AM) I’m still pretty wiped out. Head’s stuffed up, muscles are achy, etc. Not feeling too hot. The past few days have been like that, which is not how I hoped to finish the challenge.
But overall, I’m really happy with the challenge and the results. Although I didn’t get up at 5:00 AM every single day of the challenge like I wanted to, I was successful most days of the challenge and I was MASSIVELY productive this month as a result.
If I can find a silver lining in disappointing end to the challenge, it’s this: I loved the challenge, I love getting up at 5:00 AM every morning, and I’m going to continue this practice going forward (although maybe I’ll reserve one day a week for sleeping in a bit!)
Stay tuned tomorrow because I’ll share a bunch of lessons I’ve learned during this challenge.
