I was extremely tired and felt very heavy waking up. Knowing it was the 4th week of my project, I couldn’t help but wake up and bask in the glory. A few changes in my strategy helped me wake up early and I was able to average earlier than the past 3 weeks.
I’ll have to sleep in tomorrow (Saturday) and sleep off my sleep debt I’ve accumulated during the week.
My goal isn’t to wake up early during the weekdays, accumulate sleep debt and have it haunt me on the weekends. I will have to readjust my sleep schedule accordingly to keep me from sleep debt. Although I will be ending my daily project progress posts, I’ll be refining my strategies and will post updates in the future.
Thank you for following my posts as I progressed though “Project Early Bird” my first step towards big change!
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 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.
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.
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.
