Over the past three months, I've cycled maybe once per week, maybe two weeks out of each month. My job allows me to work from home pretty much whenever I wish, and I've been abusing that privilege.
The issue is exacerbated by my wife's hours. If I cycle in, I'm out of bed at five and on the road by 05:15, and so usually back home by 4 PM, whereas she doesn't even finish work until about seven. The time she gets to the station, home by train and I drive to pick her up, we're usually both home by about 8:30 PM, and by nine, I'm usually in bed. So if I want to spend any time with her, I'll hang on until about 11 before going to bed, which effectually f**ks my chances of getting up at five the next morning. I could cycle in later, but London drivers are insane enough at 5:30 in the morning. At seven or eight, it's downright impossible. Plus, the later in the morning, the more cycle commuters there are, many of whom have as much an idea of 'road sense' as I do of quantum physics.
Let me just throw in an edit here to say that I'm not blaming my wife. I'm the lazy one, not her.
So I'm sitting in front of the Mac at home now, 'working' from home but of course am on Facebook. My boss doesn't really care, as despite everything, I do get the job done. But this is having a detrimental effect on my mental health.
How do I force myself to get up and out in the mornings?
