Today I made great progress. Leaps and bounds.
This picture below was taken at 7. Terrible terrible lighting. I know.
I woke up at 7 am today. Guys! 7 am!
While still laying in bed I took photos of my two sleepy guys.
But, how did I get up at 7 AM you ask?
Well, I thought about trying to wake up an hour earlier every week for a month until I could eventually get used to waking up early, but I realized I normally wake up around 7 AM and have quite a bit of energy, but figure I'll sleep an extra hour. Which ends up into a battle of 4 hours of sleep. So, today I decided to just get up at 7 AM.
Sterling works at 8 AM, so he's always up early. He came and turned the lights on for me so that I would kind of have to wake up. It actually worked. I was up and drinking my morning tea by 7:15.
After tea I woke up and did my Yoga.
This is an old picture.. but I figured it was still allowed.I did Yoga for about 40 minutes before I started to feel rather sick. Sometimes when I wake up early I feel physically sick to my stomach. I've always been that way. As a kid waking up for early vacations, or the first little while of school I would have an upset stomach in the mornings. I'm hoping it will subside soon, because I wasn't able to finish my yoga. So, instead I sat and meditated for 20 minutes.
Today I will be working on some paintings I've been doing this week. These pictures are very very rough right now.. I may not show you the finished copies until later! The first photo is actually for my sister for Christmas. I've decided to do paintings for Christmas gifts this year.. wow did I bite off more than I could chew.. I have a pretty big family.
I'm so thankful I was able to wake up early today. I have energy. I'm happy. I'm feeling more like myself today than I have all week. This is something I need to keep up. I'll figure it out.
And please stay tuned! Monday I've decided to share the Ghost Story of my house. We've had some strange things happen here, and I've only shared with pictures on Instagram... but it's about time I wrote the actual story!
