Hallelujah 4:00 am.

It’s Thursday. So I did my Thursday Thing & linked up with the lovely Amanda at Running With Spoons.

All of my life, I’ve been a morning person. & by morning person, I don’t mean 8:00 or 9:00 am. (That’s almost my afternoon!)

I mean 4:00 or 5:00 am. 

& yes, you read that sentence correctly. & with AM behind those numbers.

A typical morning looks like this:

4:00 AM : Alarm Clock Goes Off

4:01 : My feet are on the floor & I’m on my way to the bathroom. Literally.

People always used to make fun of the way I would pop out of bed in .2 seconds and be up and functioning at such an early hour.

Mornings are MY time. Getting up, I am clear-headed, I have more focus and I am far more productive before the hustle of the day really begins. I need those few hours to finish the little things, prepare for the big things and set the tone for the next 17 hours. I’m a big believer that rising early in the morning is better for your body, and now there’s a study that may proves just that.

Read here.

I’m going to go ahead & continue with my 4:00 am wake up calls and bust out my early workouts in the sunshine. My waistline will thank me.. Hallelujah 4:00 am

Be the best YOU. Brooklyn Decker just won me over with this Q & A.

What have you been reading that’s inspired you this week?




  1. I used to be a night owl when I was younger, but the past couple of years have seen me become an early bird and I kind of love it. I’ve been waking up anywhere from 4-5 without an alarm clock for years, and while it would be kind of nice to be able to sleep in every now and then, I do love how much more productive I feel. My only complaint is that the day starts to feel LONG after a while 😆

  2. I’m an early riser too – and never understand that ‘must keep hitting snooze’ mentality – the day can’t be wasted in bed amright?!

  3. I am also a TOTAL morning person, but I don’t quite leap out of bed with your enthusiasm. I typically wake up between 5am and 5:30am on the weekdays and have SO much more energy in the morning. By 3 or 4pm I’m totally shot. haha.
