I bounced out of bed at 5am yesterday.
Bounced might be a slight exaggeration because I was sore as heck from Crossfit, but in my miiiiind I bounced out of bed.
I have always been a morning person. I wake up and I am truly happy to be awake. As soon as my eyes open, my brain starts going and I get excited about the day.
I think that’s why I am so eager to get out of bed because I have so much to look forward to in the day.
While I drink my coffee, and after I have stared at Facebook for way too long, this is the form I use to plan my day.
I love structure.
I know two things to be true about each day.
1. I have to work. There are no choices to be made here. There are specific things I have to do every single day. Period.
2. Every other minute of the day that is not work, I have a choice in what I do.
So, when I am planning out my day, I start with what workout I am going to do. Then what I am going to eat throughout the day (the hard part is following the plan I make in the hours before day light!). Finally, what hobby I am going to enjoy!
Crossfit – warm up, instruction on form for the various lifts, baseline workout for time
- Quest Bar
- Panera’s Broccoli Cheese Soup and 1/2 Turkey with Cranberry Sandwich
- Panera’s Autumn Squash Soup and 1/2 Turkey with Cranberry Sandwich
Obviously, yesterday’s meal plan did not pan out!
Life is what YOU make it. I love waking up every day because I LOVE living the life I created.
