Starting a morning routine. Eliminating excuses.

Background: Les be honest. Mornings are THE WORST for me. I have to be at work everyday at 8:30 AM, I normally roll out of bed around 8:10, 8:15. YIKES right? I will hold on to my bed with every piece of strength I own. I’m sure my snooze button hates me, lol. I’ve always had this issue. This cold weather ain’t making this no betta.

One of my goals for this year is to get up earlier, get a morning routine going. I don’t want to roll out of bed, starting my day off sluggish. I want to work out, drink tea & have breakfast. For now. I hope to eventually have enough time to even read or blog every morning.

Yesterday morning my alarm went off, I was having the same battle. I ended up just convincing myself, “I don’t have anything to DO anyway” I failed, but I took something away from that failure. It made me realize that I had to eliminate my “way out”. So last night before I got in the bed I made a plan. I wrote down what I wanted to get done when I got up the next morning. I made a goal, so there was something to work towards. I eliminated my excuse of not having anything to do after getting up early.

This morning my alarm goes off.  Of course. I hit SNOOOOOOZZEEE. Twice. I didn’t get up until a little before seven, but I was up and at the gym by 7:15!!! I’m extremely proud of myself. I set a goal, and I achieved it. I didn’t get up as early as I wanted, but I did better than yesterday. That’s what matters right? I’m finding the value in to do lists. Checking things off can be so satisfying and it keeps you well aware of the things you need to accomplish. 1 day in, forever to go though, ya’ll pray for me.
