Monday! Sometimes I feel like 5:00 isn’t early enough for me. The more I can get done before anyone wakes up, the happier I am for the whole day.
So, I was up at 5, and made it to the gym by 5:30. My husband suggested I download a Chemistry podcast (considering I’m trying to take it independent study) and I listened to that on the treadmill. It was surprisingly helpful! I can’t wait to listen to the rest.. not literally, but it does make the subject easier for me to understand.
So, I walked/ jogged for 50 minutes, incline 2 and completed 3.8 miles. Before returning home I stopped at the grocery store. We were out of bananas and apples, and I have to have my banana every morning.
When I got home, the kids were still asleep! Hooray. I read the paper. Then after they woke up, I made myself a smoothie:
- 8 oz soy milk
- 2 cups frozen mixed fruit (peaches, strawberries, and pineapple)
- 1 TBL Amazing grass
- 1 cup baby spinach
I gave the kids each a tiny bit of my smoothie. Then made them some whole wheat toast with cinnnamon.
Then, although not hungry, I was freezing! Even in the summer, mornings seem so cold to me. So I had a small spoonful of Country Time Raspberry Lemonade in some hot water. It really hit the spot.
Now the kids are awake, and we’ve got lots to do.
- Chores for the kids (they get laundry and dishes)
- Chemistry for me, writing assignments for them
- Read scriptures
- Then hope the sun stays out so we can enjoy being outside!!
