It’s before 5 am and I’ve already read several chapters in 2 books, prayed, and had some tea. So I decided I may as well write a quick blog while I’m at it. I wouldn’t quite complain that I’m suffering from insomnia because I went to bed around 7 pm and was asleep by 8 something. 🙂 I have been sick all weekend and honestly it wasn’t worth it for me to keep pushing it out and trying to stay awake. So, when I awoke hours before my alarm, I initially tried to fall back asleep and when that failed I decided I’d benefit more by trying to enjoy the extra* time I was given.
Being up early and having a chance to do some early morning meditation is such a good way to start the day. I usually try to sleep until the last minute and end up feeling rushed and frazzled. Somehow, now I feel that I will at least have a good start to my day and hopefully be more centered.
I made a “Daily in December” goal to help me remain active in the Winter when it is typically hardest for me to stay upbeat and active. I have a treadmill, a spin bike, exercise videos, AND a gym membership… so really there is no excuse for me not to stay active in the winter now. I made sure of that. I’m off to do some cardio and a quick yoga session (in my home gym). The plan is to lift weights after work so I will go ahead and pack my gym bag so I can go straight there. Boiling eggs while I workout. Breakfast will be oatmeal, turkey bacon, and boiled eggs. Yay!

Hope you all find a way to make today productive!! What are your favorite morning rituals to make your day go a little smoother??
P.S. I was asked to write a blog to document my journey this year, so I will be working on that and hopefully have it up within the week. I have really enjoyed writing and appreciate you all taking the time to read!
