A few of us have decided to share our Healthy Adventures with you in a weekly post called “Let’s Get Healthy Together”. Please join us in reading about our adventures and sharing yours OR by providing us some encouragement in the comments! We need it!
You can read my previous Get Healthy posts here to get all caught up.
I have also shared these posts:
I’ll Show You Mine if You Show Me Yours
Will PGX Change My Life?
I’m a bit stumped this week as to what to share with you! I’ve decided to write about the start of my day. As mentioned in “I’ll Show You Mine…” post (please link up your posts, it’s not too late!), I like to get a look into other people’s lives, call me nosey, but I do find that we can learn SO much from one another when we share!
So, I am going to share what my typical morning looks like….
After falling asleep sometime around 11 (sometimes 10 if I’m super tired), I wake up to the sound of my husband’s alarm clock at 5 something. I have no idea what time it actually goes off at because I never look! While he gets ready for the day, I lie in bed trying to fall back asleep, but more times than not, I am up for the day. After he leaves for work, I get up and head quietly downstairs, crossing my fingers that I don’t wake up my children while the stairs creak.
I turn on my Keurig and the sound of the water heating up literally makes me smile inside. Yes, coffee makes me smile!
So after 6 hours of sleep, I am up and at ’em drinking my coffee and doing work on the computer. I check and respond to emails and often write posts too. There is a lot of admin type work that goes into keeping this blog going, so I just play catch up.
At around 6:30, my son usually wakes up and my daughter shortly after that. For breakfast, I’ve been having my PGX pills, water and oatmeal or eggs and toast or cereal. I would like to get into the habit of making smoothies too!
After breakfast, we all head upstairs and get ready for the day.
There you go, my morning routine in a nutshell.
With school starting next week, my morning routine is bound to change slightly, I’m sure. How could I be healthier? I’ve read in many places that in order to kick start your metabolism for the day, you should eat within 30 minutes of waking up. I’m not there yet, but maybe that is a goal I should set for myself!
By the way, I went for a nice, long walk twice this week! I’m moving….slightly!
