o'dark hundred

You're familiar with military time right?

I learned it well when I worked at adt and still remember now. I actually got so I didn't need to do the conversion anymore, I just knew what each hour was.

It makes a lot of sense really. Then you don't have to worry about the silly am and pm business.

But regardless. That's not the point i'm making here.

the point is the hour of day (or night) that I have been getting up lately.

O'DARK HUNDRED

it's the very official name for what most people refer to as 5:30am.

Some people may think that this is normal and good. I, however, do not.

Why have i been getting up this early you ask?

Because my friends, I have this thing called "weight" that needs to go!

Since the end of spring i've been doing fairly well with eating much healthier (with the exception of the many girl scout cookies I ate today) and have been doing so with the intent of actually BEING healthier. I have found though, that one of the side effects of eating more healthy is WEIGHT LOSS!

OMGosh, who would have thought?

So I get up with my friend Traci 3 or 4 days a week and we sweat our butts off together trying to do things that noone should be allowed to do. ever. especially at that hour.

But it's good. Getting up early, starting the day off that way, makes me feel better. However, I have become serverly lax in my eating habits as a result of this...

the reasoning: "I'm doing this very good thing for my body, I can relax in this area."

the reality: "I'm getting up early and going to bed late... and because i'm eating crap i'm more tired than EVER! AND i'm sore!"

Moral of the story: eat well, exercise early and all is well with amanda

Most mornings, I love to get up and go for a walk/run. I love the way you feel after wards - yeah you are tired, but it is a good kind of tired!!! Keep up the work - it is well worth it.
