[Living Buddhism] Weekend edition

I thought it was hard to stick to the schedule during the week. I've come to the conclusion that it's even more difficult to do it on the weekend when all I want to do is stay curled up in bed next my sweetie. Sleeping in felt so decadent but it also threw things off completely. I wasn't, for example, able to stick to my eating schedule on Saturday because it was already 11:00 when I had my first meal of the day. Naturally, knowing that I wouldn't feel so good if I only had the one meal, I ended up eating again around 3:00 pm.

I had managed to get myself up and out of bed at 6:30 am on Saturday. The alarm went off at 6:00 (I'd gone to bed around 11:00 pm) and I lay in bed for about half an hour before getting up and going to sit in a chair and meditate for about 20 minutes. I think it was more like sleep meditating since I kept drifting off but I found it very easy to get into a more meditative state of mind. Jboy was a bit confused however, when he woke up and I was gone. I imagine I looked a little strange sitting motionless in the chair, in the dark.

This morning the alarm went off and there was no hope of me getting out of bed. I was so comfortable and quite tired. I didn't actually get up until sometime around 11:00 am. I have to admit that I'm still yawning quite a bit and figure that I have, in fact, overslept. Funny how that works.
