The Six AM Trade-off

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Each night before I go to bed I would make a vow to wake up at six in the morning for a quick jog, but as of today that promise has yet to be fulfilled. I always end up reading until 1 AM or until my eyes cannot take it any longer, whichever comes first. And, once I put down the book, it takes another 30 minutes—spent pondering on what I’ve just read--before finally sinking into deep slumber. With barely five hours of sleep, I cannot but stay in bed for another precious hour. By choosing that extra hour in bed, I forego my fitness plans for that morning and forsake, yet again, the promise I made to myself.

why run when you can jog, while jog when you can walk, why walk when you can stand, why stand when you can sit, why sit when you can lie down, why lie down when you can sleep, why sleep when you can die.

reduce, reuse, recycle yourself! join the green revolution!

I totally understand what you are going through. I too always forsake my fitness plans in favour of other 'more important' things to do.
