The last 6 months I have tried to have the same routine. As much as possible with a 4 year old @ home. My typical day would be get up at 5, get dressed and ready for work and then sit on the couch and look at my cell phone for 30 minutes. Today I woke up at 4:30 and convinced myself to get up. That extra 30 minutes of sleep wasn’t gonna help much anyway. Right?
My original plan was to get up and workout to one of the 20 DVDs I have. (I have been fat…pretty much since birth so I have accumulated QUITE the collection). I got up, not wanting to work out AT ALL. After all, it was only 4:30 and I was tired. Really tired. I managed to eat a bowl of Raisin Bran and got a wild idea to walk the track for 30 minutes before I go to work. The track is right next to the nursing home that I work at. (what an ingenious plan right???)
A few months ago when the weather first started to warm up, I would go to the track after work. I really enjoyed it. Most of the time I am out there alone and I feel like the only person in the world. I have very very little time to myself so what I do get…I cherish. I bought myself an IPOD (music lover) and made this a routine until the high school started having track meets after school. This threw a rock into my plans. Eventually I just stopped going and started using my treadmill. That gets boring real quick! Liam (my 4 year old) can’t stand for me to be away from him for long after I get home from work (he is currently singing in bathtub or I wouldn’t have time to write this for you to enjoy!)
I managed to walk 2 miles before I clocked in @ 6am. It is a great time of the day to walk and hope to develop a routine by doing this. Today was very humid. I have laid out clothes for tomorrow to wear instead of my scrubs (today was a last minute decision)
Fail to Plan. Plan to Fail.
So I have a plan! Having said that, I have been exhausted all day!!! I wanted to come home and take a nap but the Prince won’t have it. Our bedtime is a special time. Typically, we go to bed @ 730 or 8 and then tell stories, sing, spell, read (pretty much whatever the Prince wants to do) Last night we found a game called Magic Kingdoms and we both loved it. We are hoping to get to Florida later this year and WE LOVE DISNEY!!! By the time Liam fell asleep and I moved him over to where he usually sleeps, I didn’t get to sleep until around 11.
Needless to say, I’m a tired girl.
