I Promised not to Sleep in. Damn it.

Still waking up at 5:00 every morning, still not a morning person. The other day, I had just snoozed through the second alarm out of three when I remembered last week’s post about waking up early. A bolt of guilt shot me out of bed.

Obviously, none of you would ever know if I slept in, but I would know. I’d be breaking a promise, to myself, in public. Knowing me, I would probably end up writing an excuse-making followup.

I was too groggy to realize it, but by getting out of bed I was choosing a direction for this blog. It’s up to me whether this is a venue for improvement and accountability or a receptacle for excuses.
