I’m following along with the 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge at Money Saving Mom. I started the challenge in January to help keep me motivated to lose weight and help me establish some good healthy habits too.
How the Challenge Works
Each month of the challenge will have an area to focus on, to help improve your health and mine. This month’s focus will be on setting up a morning routine.
Having a routine has been really important for me. Now that we are going into the summer and it’s time to set up a new morning routine to go along with the season change.
My Goals for June’s Focus Area
If you don’t have a morning routine you might want to check out the challenge I did a while ago on how to set up a morning routine.
When we start summer our schedule gets relaxed quite a bit. Since we have so much more free time it is easy to get sidetracked and then before I know it, the day is gone. My goal for this month is to find a new morning routine that helps me get the things I need to get done early in the day. Which will give me more free time to do fun things with the kids.
My Morning Routine for this Season
Up by 6:00, Bible Time, Exercise
Breakfast, Husband Off to Work, Gardening Duties
Read Email, Check My Calendar, Quick Blog Duties
House Cleaning Tasks for the Day
Reading with my Son, Help Daughter with Projects
My Progress for this week
This week was better than last week. Although I didn’t follow my morning routine each day, I did get what I needed done each morning. This week I followed my morning routine for 3 days, just as it is written above. On Thursday I wanted to help my husband out, so I did the yard work for him. I was glad I chose to get it done in the mornings. By mid afternoon we have a huge thunderstorm come over and it dumped a bunch of rain.
Friday’s are always a different schedule for us. I usually have all the housework done by then and so I try to do something like a baking project in the morning. This morning I made a double batch of bagels. I kept one batch out for us to eat and the other batch went into the freezer.
