I have an overly ambitious bedtime self. Bedtime self thinks its a good idea to go for a run at 6:00am. Prime study time, thinks bedtime self, so quiet and uninterrupted. How about getting up early to read the newspaper or just enjoy some alone time? Bedtime self even decided to make a cake one early morning. A cake? Silly bedtime self.
Morning self grumbles when the alarm goes off, gets out out bed before Javier pushes her out, and stumbles downstairs to feed the kitties. And curls up on the couch for a few more zzzz's. Morning self is lazy & selfishly climbs into Lizzie's bed for a few more minutes.
I envy people who can go with little sleep. I had an instructor who woke up every morning at 5:00am, even on her days off. Granted, she was slightly obsessive, but think about how much she accomplishes every morning, while I am still slumbering away.
I try to convince bedtime self that morning self will NEVER agree to exercising at 6:00am or preparing elaborate baked breakfasts for my family, but to no avail. Bedtime self is very optimistic, you see.
