Every single month I somehow manage to miss all the link ups for posts like 10 on the 10th and I think they would be so fun. Well I may be late to the party, but I’m still showing up and I’m linking up with Erin from Perfectly Port Family. If you’ve never stopped by her blog be sure you do. She’s the sweetest and has a darling little family.
Do you ever stop to think about how many things you do every day that just come as second nature? It wasn’t unit I read some other bloggers habits that I started to really think about all the daily habits I have.
For as long as I can remember the very first thing I do every single day is make the bed. As soon as my feet hit the floor I make the bed. (assuming Kent’s no longer in it 😉
Then I head straight to the bathroom and brush my hair and teeth. I know a lot of people don’t brush their teeth as soon as they get up, but I can’t stand not to do this.
Next I head straight downstairs and get my coffee then curl up on the sofa with my computer and get my blog posted, check Facebook, email and read my favorite blogs. I need/want to get back into a good routine of doing my prayer journal and devo time in the morning. It’s so easy to fall out of that and I’ve found myself doing that lately.
I work out everyday for at least 45 minutes and then shower and get ready. I’ve LOVED having a workout buddy this summer. Workouts are definitely easier and more fun with a partner.
I’ve never been one to really eat in the morning and would usually wait until at least between 11:30-2:00 to eat. Since doing the FASTer Way To Fat Loss for the last 7 weeks I’m usually ready to eat when noon rolls around and it’s time to “break my fast”. This program is built around the idea of “fasting” daily for at least 16 hours giving your body time to burn through stored glucose and get to stored fat. If you are looking for a program to jump start your fitness this might be your answer.
The rest of the day may consist of errands, house work, blogging, working my Rodan + Fields business, laundry, etc…
By 4:00 I’m usually thinking about what I’m going to make for dinner and getting that ball rolling.
If we aren’t doing anything in the evening I like to go on upstairs fairly early and get ready for bed and wash my face. If I sit around and wait then I’m just too lazy to do my skin care routine and I really try to do it every night. I’m not getting any younger you know.
We usually watch television at night and frequently I’m on my computer (just like I am right now).
Then by 10:00 we are heading upstairs for the evening. Wow, we sound old and boring. Or maybe some of you young girls are thinking you could go for just having your nights free and no bath time & bed time routines. Your time will come. 🙂
I usually hop on the ipad once I crawl into bed and peruse Pinterest for bit until I can’t hold my eyes open. Katie loves to make fun of me for falling asleep with it in my hands. Oh sweet girl, your day will come.
Okay friends, that’s it for my little routine. Tomorrow I’ll probably post a little later once I’ve placed my first Nordstrom order for the sale so I can share with you what I’m getting for my first round.
I hope your week is off to a great start. Can you believe it’s already half over?
