I seriously need to start waking up early. It’s amazing all the things I can get done in the morning. This means I have to go to bed earlier. Used to, I would go to bed around 9, but this summer I’ve been staying up until 11 or 12 every night, which makes me sleep longer in the morning because I don’t skimp on sleep! But now that my new job begins next week, I have to rework my sleeping habits!
I woke up at 5:30 today and did an hour on the elliptical, ate a banana, and showered before leaving the house at 7:15 this morning to go shadow the nanny whose place I will be taking next Tuesday. I’m really excited about my new nanny family! The kids are 5-year-old boy-girl twins, and they are so much fun!
So I shadowed the nanny for an hour and was home by 9. (I have to go back at 4pm.)
Then I cut up peppers & onions, made a homemade fajita seasoning mix and dumped it all in the crockpot with frozen chicken breasts. So lunch is cooking.
Then I made zucchini & raisin muffins for breakfast, which actually turned out quite well. I made up the recipe, so I never really know if my concoctions will work or not!
And then I had breakfast.
So here it is only 10:30am, and I have already exercised, went to work, prepared lunch, baked muffins, ate breakfast, and posted on my blog.
Oh if every day could be this productive! Let’s see if I can make that happen!
Do you find that you feel more prepared to take on the day when you wake up early?
