Baby Steps

I really must get more sleep. Like get to bed before 5 a.m. kind of sleep! Granted, I can easily sleep until 1 p.m. the next day, but I still feel like I'm not quite racking up enough hours of slumber.

On Monday night I went to bed at 1:30, which is basically unheard of in my life. Last night was a late one at 3:30, but I still felt well-rested when my alarm went off at 11:30 this morning, which gave me plenty of time to read a book while drinking my coffee and eating my toast with honey, shower, and do my dishes.

Now I just have to start leaving the house early enough to take the subway.

I'm a creature of habit, for sure. But I also have a strong resistence to authority. The only person who can ever convince me to do anything is me, but I'm as good at developing bad habits as good ones. However, I'm making some steps towards a slightly healthier lifestyle lately. We'll see how that goes.

The broken computer is certainly helping.

I wish you the best of luck. I should follow in your footsteps. It's even harder when you kind of like your bad habits though. Bah!

I'll bet it is. Stops you from having online chats with people on the far side of the world at ludicrous hours, for starters!
