Today is the first day of getting back into the routine of life. Its about 2 weeks late from when most people do because of the new year, but there is a reason for that! I was waiting until we got moved into the new house! no use starting something when your whole life gets crazy and put on hold for a week!
Over the weekend we finally moved in! Me and Alex spent the whole weekend unpackaging and getting things organized.
So this gloriously cold Monday morning, I am(finally) starting on my new years resolutions, getting back into my routines or improving them in general. I have always heard the best way to wake up is to have a kick-ass morning routine. Part of my resolution was to fix mine. (the old one consisted of hitting the snooze button 4 times, crawling out of bed after looking at my phone for 15 min, the hastily eating breakfast and getting ready for work.)
No more I tell you!
Today I woke up at 5 am (ugh, I know!) I strategically placed my phone across the room so I had to get up. I then made my smoothie for pre workout fuel while the car warmed up. Went to the gym for a 30 min cardio session. I came home and got breakfast started (hash browns with onion and tofu!) and jumped in the shower while it cooked. I was then able to relax for another hour or so with breakfast and a cup of tea. Lastly I got ready for work and left!
That was my main resolution this year. I don’t usually make any, but this year I had so many new aspects in my life that were in need of improvement that I figured the new year would be a great time.
Some of the other things I will work on are:
Cleaning as I go (I hate taking so much time out of my weekend to clean the whole house)
Cutting down on packaging (we will inevitably produce more because we will have 2 renters living with us and sharing the kitchen)
Work on hobby’s instead of, or while I watch TV. (Sewing, Fencing, Other crafts)
I also would like to try more (vegan) baking. Now that I actually have a functional kitchen!
