The 5:00 AM challenge (28/30)

Good morning! It’s 6:20 AM and I got up 20 minutes ago. For three frustrating days, I’ve failed at my challenge to wake up at 5:00 AM.

But now I have an answer why…

On Tuesday, I woke up at 5:00 AM and was utterly exhausted. I shut off my alarm and crawled back into bed and slept for hours. I blogged that wasn’t sure what the reason was for how extremely tired I was.

Yesterday, the same thing happened and I missed blogging about it altogether. But I started to get some clues: I was achy, tired, there was something in my throat, and it was a struggle to get any work done. I went to bed early.

Today… yeah, I’m sick. Sore throat. Aches. Pretty tired. I was still able to get up early-ish (6:00 AM) because I went to bed early last night and had a great sleep. But I could easily go back to bed, which I might do after my deadlines.

Normally I try to push through this stuff but I’ve got a lot of demands on my time and my body coming up in the next couple of weeks and I need to be operating at my best to deliver. So I’m going to do whatever I need to do today to get through and then probably head to bed with some hot lemon water.

Okay, gotta push through on some projects until I can call it quits for the day.

Stay productive!
