Hmmm... not doing so well i'm afraid.

I might be just 'passing the buck' but I think part of the trouble is that I have exercise classes at 8.30pm 3 nights per week which means I don't get home until about 9:45pm 3 nights per week and it takes a while to wind down again so I don't go to bed until 11:30 or 12pm.

But after the school holidays, at least 2 of those class times are changing to earlier sessions so that means I'll be home by 8.45pm. I really hope this will help get me into bed by 10:30pm - 11pm so I won't reaching for that snooze button... so I'll pick it up again in a few weeks.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Hey Sandra you are not passing the buck at all!! Now I will have to find it out again, but I was only reading it recently that you should not exercise within 2-3 hours of going to bed as it hypes you up (my terms, they said something more technical)....I will find the article and post it here for you if you like....I just have to remember where I read it..... :roll:

censored = good sleep so that means you need more Kate not less!

I get up around 5am every weekday and whenever I like on the weekends but do try for no later than 8:30am, which may or may not happen. :roll:

I can relate to a lot of you here.

I wake up AT LEAST three times a night. Its really frustrating and I am so jealous of those people who say they slept the whole night!

I think I have gotten into a bad routine with watching the clock. I will wake up and think "oh cool...another four hours till I have to get up"
But then I will wake every hour until I have to get up.

I never get woken by the alarm. I am always watching the clock and the closer it gets to 5am, the more often I open my eyes to look at the clock.

I even turn my alarm off a minute before cause I don't like the noise when it is so quiet.

One rule that I live by is that I get straight out of bed. Otherwise I lie there and when I open my eyes, five minutes have gone past when I swear I only closed them just for a second!!!And I don't sleep in much anymore as I feel like the day is wasted waking up at lunch time.


And I also am in tune with my daughter's sleep patterns. I will wake up a few minutes before I hear her get up and go to the toilet. Or I can hear her tip toe into our room. Yet I slept through the time we got a skip and a group of teenagers decided to drag it on the road at 3am! Our window is right near the street and I didn't hear it!

The only thing that I worry about is having enough sleep. I hate going to work and feeling exhausted as it makes the day go sooooo long. I have to have at least eight hours of sleep a night.

OK - I am going to try this puppy again, especially as I will be required to be at an office by 8:45am monday to friday from Jan 29... these days I get in when I get in... today was around 9:20am and tomorrow I don't have to be there until 10am...

I have a bit more experience with getting up early to run and I've really enjoyed the experience, especially on a beautiful summer mornings - it's light, there are lots of people around exercising - it's very motivating. I have to remember that good feeling when my lazy morning self starts protesting...

Wish me luck!

good luck san!

going for a run sounds like a good plan. i was also reading in women's health about some techniques for getting a better sleep. getting up in the morning can be such a pain!

Its probably nicer than in the heat of the evening anyway. So hopefully it wont be long until you are enjoying the change of routine. :)
