In Friday’s post I mentioned I’m not a morning person.
I have the mug to prove it.
Increasingly, I keep being told that early morning is the best part of the day.
Who am I to disagree as I rarely see an early morning?
Now the term “early” is subjective. I currently get up at 7am. I’m guessing this isn’t classed as early by true early-risers? So, therefore, I’m curious as to what I’m missing pre-7am?
My aim therefore is to get up consistently at 6am. I have high hopes of magical rainbows and flying unicorns during this rarely seen hour.
To tempt my subconscious from its slumber, I’ve designed a proverbial carrot dangling from a stick.
Or rather a bowl of muesli, Greek yoghurt and honey.
I’m back on my 6&6, although the regime has evolved considerably since I last posted about it. After doing a considerable amount of reading on nutrition I have decided that my last meal of the day at 5pm will be carb-free.
The theory goes, by 6am, I will be;
a) Very hungry
b) Craving carbs
This is a combination I have been craving ever since this advert was shown on UK TV. I’m hoping the craving will be forceful enough to to motivate me from my dreams.
The advert did the trick in getting me to try this delicious combo, but didn’t work so well in tempting me back to my previous supermarket.
750g of fruit and nut muesli, 454g of pure honey and 500g of natural greek yoghurt;
Costs: At Sainsburys – £5.78 and at Aldi - £3.97 – Just over 30% less.
Day 3 of my training and going well so far.
Not seen any rainbows or unicorns yet, but I’ll keep my eyes peeled,
Any top tips on how to keep on track from the early-risers among you?
