Early To Rise Challenge: Day 7 I Almost Gave In

Good Morning!

This is Day 7 of the Money Saving Mom Early to Rise Challenge!

Today's passage talked about something so fitting. Because today, I almost didn't get up.


When you get down to the nitty gritty, a habit is based on one decision, at one point in time, resulting in one action I set only one person (myself!) responsible for. One. I am the only one who can get myself up. The only one who is controlling this. And the only one who is responsible if I don't get up.

This morning, I almost made one decision that would have lead me to not be awake and typing right now. Even though I had stayed up realllllllly late to get something done that probably would have taken me 1/8 of the time had I waited til the morning. Even though I was kicking myself for choosing to stay up when I knew I shouldn't. And how I knew Fredrika would be kicking my hiney out of bed when she started blaring at 5:30 am on.the.dot.

Thankfully, I did not make that decision. Because that one decision could have easily been the start of my demise with this challenge. And I do not want to let myself go down that path. On top of that, this blog, and those who read it, are holding me accountable. Thank you for that.

Staying up til almost one??? NOT gonna do that anymore! ( I'm not in college anymore, yo!)
Choosing to make this ETR thing a habit??? Gonna do that instead, ONE morning at a time.

So, what time did I finally make it up today?

Not bad, especially for staying up so late. Wanna know what was keeping me up so late?? The grocery list...

Lame. Especially now that I am so regretting that decision. I think I'll try to take a nap today...

Thanks for staying with me on this journey,
