January Challenge--Week .5

My two goals for this month are to wake up at 6:00 in the morning and walking a total of twenty miles.

Six in the A.M. is about forty-five minutes earlier than I normally do. I want to do this because I feel like I could get a lot accomplished during this time, like yoga, writing, knitting, showering by myself, fixing lunches, being out of my bed, crying in the middle of the living room because I'm tired. Plus, I think it will help me be more in control of other things in my life if I practice getting up when my alarm goes off instead of hitting snooze a half-dozen times. (I do plan on sleeping until 7:37 on the weekends.)

Twenty miles is a collaborative effort with Daughter 1. She's going to be starting golf soon (a lot of walking since it's apparently against school athletic rules for students to drive carts) and she'll be going to D.C. and that will also involve a bunch of walking as well. Plus, I like to walk. It's good thinking time. With Daughter 1 walking with me, I'm sure it will be good arguing time as well. (KIDDING!) Eventually, we'd like to walk a 5K in the spring--Brian and Daughter 2 will be running that same 5K.

I'll check in here every Saturday to keep myself accountable. So far, I've turned off my alarm every day this week. At least I'm not hitting snooze, so there's that...
