#348: Up Early, Not on purpose

I don’t like blogging first thing in the morning because this blog is about my weight loss efforts and first thing in the morning I haven’t any.

Why am I up? Because I am not living my life with intent and on purpose.  Every night I get home, sometimes in time to eat with the family, sometimes in time to go for a walk or run with the family, but almost always have time to watch something on TV with my wife before bed.  Trouble is, I never get to the bed.  I fall asleep on the couch, or love seat, or recliner, or floor even and my wife goes to be without me (not without trying to wake me up to come to bed).

3 or 4 hours later, I wake up – uncomfortable and exhausted.  Sometimes that gives me time to go to bed and get another hour or two of sleep before I have to get up – other times, I have to get ready and go to work.  But the worst is when I get up at 4 or 5 am and should go to bed for another hour or two but find myself online reading blogs, replying to facebook, or other things I don’t really need to do at that hour.  Then I have to face the day with only a few hours of uncomfortable sleep.

If I were doing this on purpose, I think I could live with it – but its never on purpose.  This has got to stop!
