Lucky Number 26.2!
Wednesday, August 22, 2007
Every night I go to bed thinking, "Tomorrow, it's going to be different. I am going to be up early. I am going to try and squeeze in that jog or make it to that gym class. 7 hours is all I need." There are days I even go to bed early thinking, "Okay, I will give my body the 8 hrs or even 9 hrs it needs." But the sun rises, and totally independent of what time I slept, if it isn't time yet when I absolutely HAVE to wake up, I snooze.
What's even more amazing is how my mind calculates this "absolutely have to wake up time" in the few seconds between the time my alarm rings and the moment I decide to snooze. It's based on numerous factors - shower time, what kind of breakfast I want to eat, do I need to take a detour to starbucks, do I have an early morning meeting, is my car out of fuel and a whole lot of other factors. As the first snooze time gets done, it's time to re-calculate. This is when my mind begins to filter out those that can wait till later - "The orange fuel tank light still hasn't come on yet" "Who needs breakfast?" "I don't need to wash my hair today".
With my brain calculating and re-calculating, it's not a wonder why I feel so tired and groggy as I wake up! Last year I was running at 6a. How did that manage to get out of my "absolutely needed factors" and how do I get it back in???
Is waking up in the morning this tough for everyone else or is it just me?

Dreams can come true ... ;)
Even though some of you have already seen this one ... I had to post it coz I think it's worth saving. :)
I had the weirdest dream ever!! I dreamt I met Rajnikanth and he was explaining to me that he doesn’t have any black money. All the money he earns is earned in the right way and also how he donates so much to charity. And this is all while both of us walked on streets of Chennai. And then, he said he wanted to pick his suit from the laundry place. And for some reason, his laundry place was this one room dhobi shop. And when we went there, the dhobi didn’t have his suit ready on time … but Rajnikanth was so patient and then he told me that anger gets one nowhere. We should be patient!!!!
I hang out too much with you Tams!!!!!
