I was absolutely determined to get up and moving nice and early today. I know I’ve mentioned it to you all a few times recently, but I have been having the hardest time getting up with my alarm. Snoozes of 30-45 minutes have been the norm…so not cool.
Apparently, I was quite motivated to get up for those early morning workouts before. Take those away and I’m a lazy bum.
Okay, kidding. I’m not lazy…all the time. Or at least not today, anyways!
I rolled out of bed first thing this morning, threw on my workout gear and headed out to the kitchen. I put on a pot of coffee, got a few items ready for baking, then went into the living room for a little yoga session. Forty minutes later, I was already feeling so much more energized and ready to start the day.
First up on the list for today? Cupcakes.
Two dozen down, two dozen to go. Three dozen to be filled. All four dozen still to be frosted…but that’ll probably wait until later tonight or early tomorrow so they’re nice and fresh for tomorrow evening.
Once I had my first batch of cupcakes in the oven, I poured myself a mug of coffee and got to work on prepping some breakfast.
I figured I’d continue to work on that whole clearing out the fridge thing, so I put together a yogurt bowl made with pineapple Greek yogurt, strawberries, half of a peach (which you can actually see sitting in the fridge all the way in the top left corner), pineapple, and a mini bag of Love Grown Foods granola.
Delicious, and a nice change of pace from what my usual breakfasts have been as of late.
Alright, my friends…I’ve gotta jet!
Question for the Morning:
What motivates you to get out of bed early in the morning? A workout? Free time before the day starts? A natural morning person?
