This is what has worked for me the last 2 years:

Lay out clothes night before.

Pick a podcast night before. Something you’re looking forward to.

Go to bed at a reasonable time.

Put alarm across room.

Set alarm to have about 25-30 minutes to get dressed, drink glass of water, bathroom etc.

I set my alarm for 5am and am out the door by 5:25. Lately I have been settling for 4:45 for 15 min of snoozetime.

It also helps to have a goal - training for a race or a weekly distance goal.

I think the best farming method for elixir and gold th9 is drop trophies to around 1600 and Barch dead bases.

I run 110 barbs and 110 archers. I use no spells unless I'm trying to squeak out a star and it might be a heal or two. Cost for barbs and archers is around 50k elixir. And you pull in 250k plus easily.

It's a no plan attack. I drop a line on barbs on one side with a line of archers behind. Do this for all 4 sides. Then use remaining troops and heros to clean up/get a star.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the advice. Is it easy to find dead bases down there? How long does it typically take to search for one?

I am a college student, and after coming home for Christmas this year I stepped on the scale. I saw I had gained 20 lbs in a semester, and knew it was time for a change. I was already slightly overweight at 200 lbs, but when I saw that I was 220 lbs I knew I was letting myself go. My family health history is not the best; most notably I am at risk for diabetes. I had heard great things about the Paleo diet, so I committed to doing that and going to the gym every day. I began this on January 1, 2017 and have not stopped since.

I began my workouts by running 1 mile before doing weight training. I do back/biceps, chest/triceps, legs/shoulders, and repeat. I incorporate abs every other day as well. The first month I was down 15 lbs, and I have lost about 10 lbs per month since. My pre-workout run has increased from 1 mile to 3 miles, and I am planning on running a 10k this summer. The Paleo diet has become less of a diet to me and more of a lifestyle. I no longer really crave junk food, but I do enjoy some cheat meals every now and then... because I deserve it! My overall health has increased. I have more energy, have stopped snoring (my girlfriend is thankful), and feel I have an increased focus throughout the day.

I just want everyone to know that no matter what your starting point, you will see results. If you commit yourself, you will see results. Once you do, it is a positive reenforcement loop that becomes addicting. I have had family and random friends tell me I look great. I now crave going to the gym to better myself and reach my personal fitness goals. The first month is the hardest, but then it becomes your lifestyle. Stop making excuses, stop saying next week, and start today. Your children will thank you when you're there at their wedding, there to play with their grandkids, and there to see them succeed at whatever they do. The only person that can make this change is you, so go do it! PM me is you need any advice. This sub has been a great source of motivation for me and I would love to pass it on to others.
