Day 1: Ain't no Party like a "snooze" Party #5amChallenge

Let's be honest. I knew I wasn't going to wake up at 5am when I was brushing my teeth for bed on Sunday night. For some reason I failed to realize I'd actually need to adjust my sleep time Sunday night when I decided to do the challenge, so I was mentally prepared to sleep in. When my alarm went off at 5am, shit didn't even have a chance to get real because I instinctively hit snooze. I didn't even bother waking up. My life force just knew the 5am shenanigan wasn't about to come into fruition.

With that said, I did keep my original 630a alarm, but that got snoozed through, too... 3 times! Lol! Tell the truth and shame the devil.

But there's good news to report -- Even though I snoozed the original 5am alarm, snoozed my 630a alarm 3 times, and didn't get out of bed until 7am, I still managed to leave the house 30 mins earlier than normal!!

I honestly shocked myself. I didn't rush to the bus. I didn't rush into work. I didn't rush to my morning meeting. I didn't rush at all!! On top of that, I was extremely positive and chipper... at 8 freaking 30 in the morning. I was smiling. Genuinely smiling... and asking people about their weekend... and actually listening to the response and engaging! Y'all -- this was awesome. I'm actually excited about Day 2 of the challenge. Let's see if I can snooze one less time.

Day 1 Tips
I saved time in the morning by doing an abbreviated version of my normal routine. Since I snoozed so many times, I knew I'd have to skimp in other areas. I walked my dog for a shorter time (10 mins instead of 30), styled my hair with a scarf (saved about 20 mins), and didn't pack a breakfast/lunch for work (ate out). I also grabbed the first outfit that came to mind and didn't waste time standing in the closet wondering what to wear.
