“When I wake up in the mornin’
and the ‘larm gives out a warning
I don’t think I’ll ever make it on time”
Adjusting to a new morning routine on top of a cross-country move wasn’t the easiest of challenges I’ve given myself in the last 5 weeks. They say it takes 3 weeks to form a habit and I’m excited to admit that today (week 4) my routine felt a little more… well, routine! Mornings around here look something like this:
7:08AM The alarm goes off and obligatory email scan on the Blackberry
7:10AM Shower, towel dry hair, eye make up
7:20AM Blow dry hair, start the getting-dressed-for-work process
7:25 -:28AM Turn on straightener and pop into the kitchen to defrost part of breakfast
7:28AM Straighten hair, make up, finish getting dressed for work
by 7:40AM Into the kitchen to finish making breakfast
7:48-:50AM Eat! I’m loving a combination of whole grain bread product, PB&J or eggs, and some fresh fruit. This morning’s combo was 2 slices of Udi’s Millet-Chia bread, 1 egg + 1 splash more egg white cooked with salt and pepper, and cinnamon dusted strawberries. Yum!
8:05AM Brush teeth and collect my gym bag. Fill up water bottle.
8:10AM Off to work (often with a Starbucks run on the way O:-) )
I know it seems pretty OCD-like and scheduled (which isn’t me at all…ha) but if I leave myself room to dilly-dally I’ll run out of time and I still don’t want to be late to work. I haven’t even been there for a month and good impressions last a long time!
What does your morning schedule look like?
