Tuesday, September 2nd 2008 Just over the hump of the 30-day trial. I haven’t slipped once on caffeine that I can remember. I have slipped a few times on getting up at 630am. However, I’m not beating myself up on it, I am still getting up much earlier than my normal 945am or later that was happening pre-trial.
Today it was easy to get up on time. We were facing a long drive back to Chicago and I still had to pack for my destination wedding.
The alarm went off at 630am and I turned it off. Rather than jumping out of bed, I lied there and went through my morning meditations and visualizations. This was a risky move. I could’ve slipped back off to sleep.
I managed to stay awake, although I was startled to find out my morning mental process took about 45 minutes. I am not sure if I got lost in my own head while still conscious (hopefully), or I passed in and out of consciousness.
Caffeine seems to have become almost a non-issue. It will be interesting to see if it stays that way when my partying kicks in to high-gear down in florida.
