I had a difficult time sleeping last night.
I slept around 11pm and then woke up around 12am and tossed and turned for about 15 min before I was able to sleep again. I ate dinner late, around 8:45pm and ate till about 80% full. I obviously made some bad decisions. I slept late last night and the night before so I feel a bit tired. I have to learn from my mistakes!
I wasn’t get to bed till 11pm.
It was difficult to wake up and I thought about sleeping in a bit, but thought to myself ‘It’s only a temporary pain to wake up now, and I can take a short nap later if I’m still really tired.’
Well, I’m up and once the grogginess wore off, I was able to take advantage of the day.
I have been definitely getting into the groove of waking up early and it’s not as difficult as it was during the first 3 weeks. But I’m not going to be letting my guard down until I can consistently wake up early on autopilot.
Last night, I had dinner early which helped me get to sleep early.
Have a good day everyone!
Good morning everyone, it’s a new week, another chance to get it right.
I took the time this weekend to analyze my early rising strategies and changed things that wasn’t working for me. I hope to wake up earlier than 5:30 am this week on average. Technically, since I’m only counting the weekdays (and started the project on a Tuesday), I’m on day 15. But this is week 4, so I will work hard to finish up strong and work on consistency after this week.
I’ve just finished up the 3rd week of Project Early Bird and I will be reflecting on my early rising strategies during the weekend to improve my rising times for week 4.
Although my rising times have been greatly improved, my goal of a consistent rising time of 5:00 am has yet to be achieved.
As expected, my week one performance was on average about 2 hours off my target of 5:00 am. I was able to wake up early consistently week 2, and I would be very happy if I am able to consistently keep the performance of week 2 up. Week 3 didn’t go so well, and my rising times suffered. I’ll have to further study how I can improve and make waking up earlier, easier than it has been the past week.

Wait… I’m supposed to be getting closer to my goal, not getting further from it.
I’ve only hit 5:00 am one day this week and the rest was downhill. Although I’ve made significant progress, I’m still quite a ways from my goal.
I’ll be doing some research on sleep and work on some strategies I can implement for the coming week. (Week 4)
I’m still having some trouble getting up at 5:00 am. I feel so heavy when trying to wake up, I just end up telling myself to sleep in a bit longer and get some more sleep.
Friday, let’s see what we got in store tomorrow.
Felt slightly heavy waking up.
Stayed in bed for a while checking email before getting up to go to the gym. Slept around 10:30pm.
Ate some chips before bed to kill craving. (Again, not the greatest thing to do, but just had to kill that craving)
Waking up was not too bad, tried to eat a light dinner. After the alarm went off, I stayed up by surfing the web till my brain woke up. Slept last night around 11pm. Slight headache in the early morning (9-10am) which is extremely rare for me.
Woke up quite late today.
Could not sleep early (~12:30am) because I made all the mistakes to keep me from sleeping. Ate late, a lot of pasta before bed. Telephone call right before bed.
Back to the drawing board.
