so i set my alarm to get up early and go swimming before it got hot out (and before work). i slept an hour and half past that. guess i needed it.
i hope that's not a sign of how my august self-improvement will go. if it is, then it's a good thing that i have five days of prep and practice to get myself back in the swing of going to bed early and waking up early.
i was doing that in may and i always felt so much better. somewhere down the line i started going to bed about two hours later than usual and that makes for a very pleasant and reubenesque lulu, lemme tell ya.
anyway, it's monday. i'm in a good place. i'm on the cusp of the thrill of self-improvement. i'm not exactly motivated but i'm inspired and that's an excellent first step.
on to conquer the day!
