Morning Routine = Key to Success
Sunday, September 13, 2020
This week I will focus on changing my morning routine to get me to my next weight loss goal. Morning Routine = Key to Success. One of the biggest differences between successful and unsuccessful people is a great morning routine. Tomorrow I will list all my activities, and also write up my ideal morning. #1 Stop laying in bed and reading the morning news on my phone. What a terrible way to start the day! I need something that will bring me joy! Tonight I will lay out my clothes and have my coffee items on the counter. Yes I am ready for change!
We are still figuring out our comfort level with friends and social distancing. For instance in England they will limit social groups to 6, and it should be the same 6 people. Here we seem to have found comfort in living a life centered around us and our 2 dogs and our daughter and her family. But it's time to make changes. We got a patio heater and canopy so we can be warm and dry on the patio later in the year when we visit with friends. This week hubby played pickleball with his friends, and I met outside with my TOPS group. I know we have to 'normalize' our interactions with our family and friends.
Today our air quality index is the 2nd worst in the world. Our west coast neighbors California, Oregon and Washington are dealing with raging wildfires. My heart goes out to them. When we lived in the north there was a massive forest fire that caused so much fear, damage and loss of wildlife. Fortunately no human lives were lost. While the poor air quality doesn't seem to bother me, I have been staying inside to avoid asthma attacks. I closed the windows and have the furnace fan running to circulate and clean the indoor air.
I am happier with my scale. My weight is trending downward so I should lose 2 pounds before the next challenge. But if I lose 3 pounds I will have lost 80 pounds since I joined SparkPeople in 2008! Now I need to teach myself to do alterations on my jeans, to make the waistline smaller.
