I forgot to blog this morning, but at least I get a second chance. My weekend starts now, followed by a 1-day work week, followed by my Vacation. This I what happens when you change your workweek after booking your vacation. 4 more sleeps until SK.
If you really want to start your day right, you gotta get on it before you go to bed.
Today I started the day making coffee and breakfast shakes in a kitchen full of dirty dishes.
Yesterday I started the day in a clean kitchen with a pre-programmed pot of coffee brewing, and my breakfast shake waiting for me in the fridge. When it was time to get dressed, my clothes were ready for me. I had lots of time to blog, and drink coffee.
Today I have some slack because I still don’t snooze, and I am taking the car to work, but I lost a lot of time prepping coffee and shakes, and now I have to go digging for a wardrobe. No time for a leisurely Joe. It’s post the blog and go.
3 wins for the day.
- I didn’t snooze: when my alarm goes off, I get up and get at it; mind you I woke up before my alarm, and reset it for 15 minutes later, but I didn’t hit the snooze button. This is one good habit I have managed to retain all summer, despite my diet and exercise plan falling by the wayside.
- I am blogging in the morning for the 3rd time in a row – much better than having to write something before I can go to bed.
- I did my 5 minute cold shower. I considered skipping it, but I feel so good when I actually do it. It also makes me more comfortable throughout the day, as my metabolism is much better at regulating my internal temperature.
Gotta go – have a swell day, kids.
Today I used green beans in my shake instead of the usual mixture of pinto / kidney / black beans that I usually use. It was really nasty. Big win for the day? .. 2nd consecutive morning blog. Not much else in the above and beyond category. 6 more sleeps until my Holiday.
