The 12 Day Reboot – DAY 2

For time:
150 squats
75 hip extensions
120 squats
60 hip extensions

Yesterday we cleared the house of any tempting foods leftover from the holidays!
Today we introduce a task that will be a requirement for the remainder of the 12 days!
Day 2 (to be completed January 3rd – and everyday for the remainder of the challenge)
Be in bed by 9:00pm. Lights off by 9:30pm. You can read between 9:00 and 9:30pm but all technology, cell phones, and email checking is strictly prohibited after 9:00pm. The only exception to this rule is if you have an engagement that requires you to be out past 9:00pm.

    This is a tough one for me too as I normally go to bed around midnight to one in the morning. It’ll be interesting to see how my productivity / energy levels are effected when I go to bed earlier. Thanks

    I am pre-filing my compliance with tonight’s requirement since there is no doubt about my ability to be obedient with a 9:30 pm lights out bedtime!
    (Is there any chance that an afternoon nap might be added as a challenge for the remaining days?)

      Working to get dinner on the table by 6:30 so everyone in our house can be compliant. Oh, and reasonably accurate depiction.

    Well, seeing as how I’m usually in bed by 8:30 (so I can be nice to small children during the week), this should be no problem.

  4. Emily Brauucher

    This is very workable with the little one. Can you challenge her to sleep through the night, please?
    Good call on no technology after 9. Will do.

  5. Annette Brownlee Elton

    Not a problem for me, so I’m posting in advance that this is Done. I go to bed at 9 anyway.

    Whew…this is probably one of the MOST challenging things for me. My bio-rhythms definitely lean toward the “night-owl” side of spectrum. I’m game to commit to this for rest of challenge AND the rest of the month, for giggles ‘n grins. I DO appreciate the “screen sucking” boundary of 9pm!!

    This is a relatively easy one for me too given that I’m prone to getting up by 5am- well, not over break, but it starts again Monday!

    This will be done for tonight after a day skiing with the kids. We will see if I can keep it going. 9 pm is early for me, but this is a good idea.

    I was relieved that this started today. I read it at 9:45pm last night and thought I already failed on day 2. Looking forward to bedtime!

  10. Josh Nothwang

    Giving this a try. 9am is 3-4 hours earlier than my normal bedtime. Also not allowing my phone in the bedroom – trying this for 2016.

    Mission accomplished. I think Charlie is loving this one as now we all are going to bed at his bedtime! (Marcus is pretty happy too…)

  12. Colleen Carden King

    Done on Jan 2 and 3. Well, in bed by 9:15 and lights out at 9:40. Ironically, the worst two nights of sleep I’ve had in awhile.

  13. ariane

    Done. However, up multiple times with the puppy throughout the night. I hope over the rest of the days to be up less!

  14. Kelly Shekiro

    Managed to hit the bedtime target on day 2, but was pretty rushed trying to get ready for the next day in order to get to bed on time and then didn’t fall asleep for a while as my mind was racing trying to think through that I was set :/ Probably should’ve accepted 9:15 for a little less stress right before bed
