Maximizing your Morning: Week 3

How am I doing in my maximizing my morning challenge? Well not too bad but not that great either. But, I am fine with that. I have been reminded over and over again that you do not accomplish change drastically and right away. It takes time and patience. The key is to keep trying and not giving up.

Week 1 check-in: I have kept on with waking up before 7:00 except on Mondays, Saturdays and Sundays when the house schedule is different. The wake up time has not moved to 6:30 yet, but that's ok. I am up before the kids and have time to have my quiet time. That is what is important. As far as the going to bed part is concerned I have not made much progress there. That is the area that still needs a lot of effort.

Week 2 check-in: I have not worked a schedule yet for my quiet time, but I certainly have been thinking about it.

Now for this week the challenge is to develop an Exercise Plan (refer to pages 10-15 of the eBook). The steps are:
1 Pick a Workout

2. Make it Fun

3. Create you Habit (Pick one thing you will do everyday and at what time, or moment of the day): It's going to be weights while the kids are doing independent school work.

4. Set a Goal (Why are you exercising?): Because I can stand to lose some weight.

So the challenge is on, link back at So I Married a Mennonite.

Good luck with the scheduling plan and the exercising. I do not enjoy exercising so I just never seem to work it into my schedule.

I'm not good at going to bed early either. That makes getting up early hard. Best of luck with that too. :)
