What Would You Do?

WHOSE idea is this, anyway? This whole time-change when it's PITCH black at 7 a.m.?? Hello? As a mom and teacher, I should be thankful that we have spring break to recover from this, but it is driving me crazy. AND -- WHY am I waking up at 5 a.m.? I wasn't waking up at 4 a.m. LAST week? What's up with that?

So, I have a question for you. Yesterday (Tuesday) I didn't wake up at 5 a.m. -- my alarm was actually set for 5, though. I woke WIDE awake at 3:30 a.m. I turned on the fan and used the bathroom. I lay in bed. I re-arranged closets in my head. I lay on my right side, then stomach, then left side, then back again (I did this little gymnastics routine about a dozen times) trying to get comfy and settled. I probably sighed a lot, too. My alarm was set for 5 because I go to a 5:30 a.m. bicycle class at my gym that I really enjoy -- as much as anyone can enjoy an exercise class at 5:30 a.m. Most of all, I like walking out of the gym at 6:30 a.m. having gotten in a great workout and being done for the day. Yes, I want to go through spring break (I go on Tu/ Th, my work days) and Tuesday I also had a 7:30 a.m. breakfast meeting with some church people.

So, at 4:45 a.m. I am still tossing and turning and debating my exercise class. It's not like I was sleeping, anway, so I should get up and go, right? But I am certainly not well rested, so maybe I should continue this not-so-restful laying in bed, right? I had the breakfast meeting (which meant I couldn't sleep in for long anyway) then I had told the kids I would pick up some friends to come over, but not a terribly crazy day ahead of me.

Which would you choose:
a) You aren't sleeping anyway -- at least get a good workout!
b) You had better rest while you can!
c) Going to a 5:30 a.m. exercise class is beyond the realm of my imagination.

I would have chosen (A). I might as well get up because I know I will feel better later for doing it. I really hope you are enjoying time this week! :)

You wear me out just THINKING about it. But, I feel your pain. Couldn't sleep last night either. So, this morning I did my Curves workout AND walked the Lunsford Trail at ACU. I feel really skinny today. :)

The problem with staying in bed is you still don't really get that rest after all... But if you are off work anyway, you could (try to) catch a nap later in the day, right? :)

Okay. . .C is the only choice on SOOOOOOO many levels. . .but I probably would have gotten up and gone for the workout too.

I am very glad that the time change has happened since I have more time to walk in the afternoons. . .but I WAS more than a little taken aback at how totally dark it was at 7:00 a.m. when we got up for church Sunday. And we also have the whole, "It's 7:30 ALREADY." thing going on. But I can totally handle having it come the first Sunday of spring break so we can work into it before we go back to school.

Gotten up. I frenquetly lie in bed thinking I could be writing on my blog - but I usually don't get up. By the time I do get up I'm only about 25 min early.

Get up! You're not sleeping anyway! Sometimes I get a book and read - in bed - it feels wonderful...
