Early to Rise Challenge

Just a quick little post tonight . . . to get my 10th post in for this month before we are in a NEW month!! :)  This week, Crystal at Money Saving Mom posted about an Early to Rise challenge she's hosting for March.  I've been going back and forth, trying to decide if I wanted to join in or not . . . but I think I'm going to take the plunge.  The nice thing is, I can choose my own wake-up time; it's not a contest to see who can get up the earliest. :)  I've been having a terrible time getting up early lately; last week of course I had a good excuse, but now I'm hoping to get back into a better routine!

I'm setting my sights low for this month--my goal is to be up by at least 7:30 am every day.  Some of you probably are laughing right now because that is NOT early--I get that. :)  I would much rather be up by 6:30 instead . . . but I want to make this realistic and not set myself up for failure right off the bat!  My kids sleep in till 8-9 am every day, and Jim doesn't have to be at work till 9 am most days, so we tend to start our day later than many people (and end it later, too).  Anyway . . . I'm aiming for 7:30, but my ultimate goal is to work myself little by little into an earlier bedtime and wake-up time.

And now . . . since midnight is quickly approaching and the challenge starts tomorrow, I think I will go get myself to bed. :)  I'll be blogging about my progress now and then--probably not every day, but hopefully often enough to stay accountable.  If anyone wants to join me, let me know--and be sure to check out the challenge post over on Money Saving Mom!

It's 4:50 a.m. and I am up -- not awake, really, but up. I read about this challenge over at By Grace and I will be praying for you all, but am not going to try and get up any earlier than I do right now!
