"You can have the results you say you want, or you can have all the reasons in the world why you can’t have them. But you can’t have both. Reasons or results. You get to choose."

Well…

I took the extra Concerta at 7:30pm (12 hours from my morning dose) and by 10pm was tired.  Went to bed and felt like I could not sleep.  I tossed and turned and got up a few times.  But I must have slept.  For when my alarm went off at 6am I woke up feeling great!  I honestly cannot recall ever waking up feeling so refreshed and ready for my day.

I did my core work (20 - 25 mins), my 15 minute yoga routine and then some additional stretches.  I finished at 6:40 am (the time my alarm usually goes off and I start pressing snooze).  So I managed to fit breakfast and makeup into my morning routine and still get an earlier train!

So day 1 goes into the books as a success.

In case you are interested in my core work routine:
(Numbers are starting reps, will increase in most cases over time)
  • Pelvic tilts x20
  • Lying leg raises x 20 (each side)
  • Prone leg raises x 20 (each side)
  • Bridge x 10
  • Plank 30 sec x 3
  • Side plank 30 sec x 3 (each side)


I wasn’t that impressed by the yoga routine I chose from the internet.  I will try to find a new copy of ‘teach yourself yoga’ as I used to love the short routine in that.  As a back up I have other internet routines I can try.
