It's happening...

I think it's happening, it's still early yet to tell, but I think I'm becoming a morning person!! I'm trying not to get too excited yet because I haven't sustained the early morning habit for 21 days, which apparently is the magic number to make habits stick. Still, last week I was doing early morning workouts all week, and this week I'm 2 out of 3 days for getting up at 6am. Holy cow! If I become a morning person can you just imagine all the possibilities? On Monday I got a taste of the awesomeness of starting my day early. I got up at 6am and did 5 miles at the gym. I listened to conference talks while I ran so I felt like I was getting a double whammy of strengthening body and spirit at the same time. I finished around 7am and then went grocery shopping! I did a HUGE shop, got everything I needed for the whole week. It went so fast without the girls and then I got home at 8am and 3 of the biggest to do's on my list were already DONE before the kids were even awake! So what did I do with the rest of my day? Ran errands, took Teya to the dentist, super cleaned my house (closets and everything!) mopped floors, scrubbed bathrooms, the works. I also made a fabulous dinner (courtesy of the crock pot) and when Taber came home he was blown away! Yes, I think getting up early has some serious perks, now if I can just teach myself to get to BED early, then I think this is really gonna stick!


  1. Go Becca GO! You are the bomb lady!!! Good job on everything!

  2. Mornings are the way to go. I'm up at 430 for gym time for 2 hours. back by 7, I get to read, shower, clean, etc. all before the kids wake up! I LOVE it!!! I was never even a morning person either. But now if i sleep till 8 I feel like i'm a total slacker and wasted half my day of "me-time".

  3. geez! Tony learned the hard way that I am not a morning person. The only way he has ever gotten me up at six was when he asked me if I wanted to lay in the shower with him ( cuz we have a huge tub) he turns off the bathroom lights and we lay in there with the hot water running. it's nice, but other than that,,, no go on the early mornings. I do have to say though, it's crazy onve 10am hits and you feel like it should be like 3 pm and you still have so much day left. but then by the end of the day you are super tired. good job bec... you are awesome.
