Trying something new

First off I am so excited to say I AM GETTING A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW!! Last night, at midnight, my oldest son proposed to his girlfriend and she said YES!!! My baby boy is getting married, it just doesn't seem real!!

OK, onward...

I am not usually a morning person, which means on work days I usually get up at 7:00 to be at work by 8:00. Sometimes I push it and sleep until 7:15. Fortunately I teach at a school that's only about 5 minutes from my house. Well since I sleep until 7:00ish I am rushed in the morning, I have to get ready for work and eat quickly. I have no time for anything else. Then by the time I get home from work I am tired from teaching all day and I don't want to get on the treadmill, I barely want to cook dinner. Soooooo I am going to try to change that, starting on Tuesday I am going to work really hard to get up earlier so that I have time to eat a good breakfast, maybe do a 30 minute walk or run on the treadmill, and even have time to do a quick morning devotion. I think that this will make my day a lot less stressful. So my plan is to wake up at 5:30, eat a nice breakfast while doing my morning devotional, then a 30 minute walk on the treadmill. That puts me finishing everything by around 6:30 which means I have PLENTY of time to get ready for work. I think it will be a good way to start my day each morning but I know I am going to be SO tempted to not do it and to go back to sleeping until 7:00ish so I have to work really hard to do this. I will be sure to post Tuesday afternoon/evening about how well I do on Tuesday morning.

Have you been sneaking in my head and reading my mind? LOL

First off, congrats on the upcoming wedding!

Second, that is almost exactly what I've been thinking. I get up around 5 because I live about 45 minutes from work and I take forever in the morning to get ready. However, I still don't have time to work-out or do my devotional...both of which I stop by about January 5th every year because of time.

Maybe we can encourage each other!

Michelle, I know what you mean, I have great intentions but then it gets to be where I just fall back into my old habits because it is easier.
