Some days I feel like I have nothing going on, but when I sit and think about what I have done throughout the day I get exhausted. Life didn't use to be so busy, or at least I don't think it did... again if I think back, it really has always been busy.
I use to sleep in until the very last minute before I would get up and get ready and brush my teeth and hair and get out the door. Over the last few weeks, I have decided to start waking up earlier. I started with getting up 15 minutes earlier and then I started with 30 minutes... I now get up at 6 every morning and I have to be out of the door by 7:20. I get up and then lay in bed waking up. I will get up sometime after 6 and then will make my bed and do anything that needs to be done, like load the dishwasher, vacuum the floors, etc. I try to get a few things done each day to make sure that the evenings are a little easier on me.
I leave the house at 7:20 each morning. I watch my kiddo walk to school and then I head to work. I only live 3.6 miles from work, so the drive is very short. I like it that way though. I commuted to work every day for many many years. I can't do that anymore. My anxiety can't handle it every single day.
I get to work and begin working at 8. Before starting to work, I will check my emails, social media, etc. Work goes from 8-4. At 1:50 I leave to pick up the kiddo and before she gets into the car, I usually do some exercising before we head back to my work to finish out the day.
After work, I get home and will walk a mile on the treadmill. If I have done any part of the mile before now, I will just finish up what needs to be done for my mile and then might incorporate some other exercises to finish up my workout. After working out, I will usually start making dinner. I fast daily, so by 5 I am ready to eat. Some days, we eat around 6. Just depends on what I am making and what we have going on.
I will clean up after dinner and will usually take a shower/bath and then relax the rest of the night. Towards the end of my evening awake, I try to do 20-30 minutes of reading and read my devotional before I head to bed at 8:30 or 9. I know I know... so early. But I make sure I get over 5,000 steps in a day and I am always moving during the day. By 8 my body is so tired and ready to rest up for the next day's work!
This is just one of my day's... :)
