That was my thought when I went to bed last night. I had packed my lunch, checked my bag, laid out exercise clothes, and knew what I was going to wear. Those things make my morning more relaxed.
This morning I woke up without my alarm. Got up and did one video, then another. By that time, I was awake enough to do everything else. Husband and I started a read the Bible through in a year plan, and we even had time for that. I arrived at work right on time in spite of yet another change in the traffic flow around construction.
I brought a small coffeemaker to work before the holidays and was looking forward to making fresh coffee when I got there this morning. It made for a much nicer start than arriving with my half-warm coffee after grabbing it on my way out the door. Since I have breakfast early, I planned for a 100 cal mid-morning snack, a pack of plain cream of wheat. It always makes me think of Mr Woodhouse in Jane Austen's EMMA and his "thin gruel".
It was wonderful to come home to a pot of Irish stew that my daughter made. I measured out a portion when I'd love to had seconds and maybe thirds. Stuck to my one portion and continued to feel like eating more, but didn't. I didn't feel like doing anything, but put on some music and got busy. My lunch is made and tracked ahead of time, and I'm ready for bed.
