Start each day right

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

I started my first day of summer vacation from school with exercise, water, and fruit. I feel comfortably tired and relaxed. So my goal for this week will be to "start each day right." I know that sounds easy, but how many times do I get caught up in wasting the morning on the computer, eating the kids sugar cereal, forgetting a glass of water? then I feel sluggish and set myself up for failure the rest of the day. So I am going to try to do my big exercise in the morning while it is cool, but if I am unmotivated, at least a walk around the block is in order. I'm still going to allow myself an iced coffee (black coffee, one splenda packet, skim milk, all over lots of ice mmmmmm), but I'm not going to forget to drink water. Summer is time for fresh fruits and veggies, so it will be easy to find lots of fruits we all love. Here is to me and starting off right.

    Good for you. I am finding it easy to get into a great routine with a morning walk, nice healthy breakfast and lots of fruits and vegetables now that I am off! Can I keep it up in a school year?! I hope so. Have a terrific summer and take care of youself. We can't take care of others if we neglect ourselves. Good to see you taking some time to do this during the summer.

    I totally understand what you mean, especially for feeling sluggish when I have a bad day! When I am at work, no problem. But when it's up to the vacation.... With no routine, I tend to do exactly the things you wrote here!

Great! Keep on going!
