Soooooo… I have happy news!!! Our morning routine has been a success – minus a few days where we were just human. I am a firm believer in forgiving yourself and being human.
I also pushed the wake up time back by 30 minutes and that even worked! We are much more productive in the morning and it makes for a much better day. Here’s a link to the previous post regarding the new morning routine.
However, I had some personal changes in my life and they have drastically changed my appetite. I had completely stopped eating breakfast. That is a huge no no!! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – hands down. I wanted to get a better jump start to my day and my metabolism. I decided that Daniel and I would get up and have breakfast together.
As with everything new we introduce into our lives, we are baby stepping. Today was the first day and breakfast was a simple bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios. Starting small, nothing to cook or heat up and easy clean up.
I totally sold it to Daniel, which was difficult because he was dead set on telling me that he eats breakfast at school with his friends. I rolled my eyes and threw a tantrum and whined about eating my boring breakfast by my boring self. Modeling poor behavior, I know, but it worked. He was just as excited to have breakfast and good morning talk with me as I was.
Even though it was short, it was good time spent together. It was easier than I thought to spring from bed and eat a bowl of cereal. I have never done this before, probably ever in my life.
I had to share this with you guys because I am so excited about how it turned out!
