I had to somewhat re-arrange my schedule during the Ramadhan month. During this fasting month, I've turn into such an early riser. No more late nights for me either!
My alarm rings three times each morning without fail during this fasting month, and although I may not like it one bit, get up I must.
My first alarm is set at 3.30am. That signals my wake up time in order for me to have an hour's worth of workout each day. Although some days, I cheated and slept on. ^_^!
Getting up at this time is the only way for me to get a decent workout. I've tried working out in the evening, but the hot weather we are experiencing now proves just too much for me, even though I'm running on a treadmill in the comfort of my own home. Working out at night is not an option because I usually get way too hyper after a workout and doing it at night will only make me alert and not be able to sleep! @_@
The second alarm will ring at 4.40am. That's the time for me to wrap up my workout and head to the kitchen to cook for our Sahur meal. Sahur is an early morning meal before we start fasting during the day. I only cook simple meals and so far I've not skipped any meals yet because Raimie has started fasting this year. Fasting without this early morning meal would be too difficult for him! By 5.00am, I should be finished and it is usually time to wake Zaini and Raimie up.
The last alarm will ring at 6.00am. After our sahur, I let Raimie to continue sleep for a bit and at 6.00am, I will wake him up for him to get ready for school.
Because I have to wake up really early, I sleep early, the latest by 10.00pm compared to my usual 11.00pm or 12.00am during the non-fasting month.
