You can down load my daily planner here —> Nineveh Daily Planner
Today, I’d like to walk you through the different aspects of my morning routine that I included in the planner.
Prayer: Morning Offering and Angelus: I have it scheduled for this to happen at 6 am. But that doesn’t always work out. Instead I just aim for it to be the first thing I do each day, regardless of the time I get up. The most important thing you can do to start your day off right, is to get enough sleep. So please don’t beat yourself up if you need extra rest.
Here are the links to the Angelus, and to the Morning Offering. you can print them out and have it ready if you choose. I prefer to use a prayer app on my phone. Let me know if you’d like recommendations.
Drink a glass of room temperature water with lemon. It’s important to get hydrated and this helps with detoxing and getting your bowels moving on a daily basis.
While sipping my water, I sit for a few minutes and do some Social Media, mostly inspirational stuff that will set the right tone for the day.
Workout: I then proceed to my daily work out. I started this with the Nineveh 90 and it has been amazing. I had to start slowly as I was extremely out of shape…out of breath climbing stairs…out of shape. Three weeks into it and I like to run up my stairs at home…because I can! 😀
I started with the Leslie Sansone 1 Mile Walk
and am now working on the C2K5
It doesn’t matter what you do, just get moving when you can!
Breakfast: I am currently doing The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution
My favorite breakfast is a fruit smoothie. I add one scoop of Paleo Protein Powder, it makes it delicious and nutritious. Then add the fruits I like to the Blender…usually half of a banana, some frozen blueberries, 1 tablespoon of Almond Butter and 1 cup of Coconut Milk! Then blend it all together…yummm!
Then I do a quick kitchen clean up. The kids help with rebooting the dishwasher. And hubby helps with the after dinner messes, so this is usually just a quick thing.
Morning Routine continues in the Master Suite where I make my bed, shower up and get dressed, swish and swipe my sink and toilet, and get one load of laundry going. If you have done the FlyLady routines, much of this will will seem familiar to you.
Daily Mass: My goal is to get all of this done by 8:30 am so that I can make it to the 9 am MASS. I’m still working on that one. It’s hit or miss…with a lot of misses so far. But I keep trying, that’s what matters. This is probably when some of you who work outside the home would be leaving the house. If I don’t make it to Mass, I often dedicate this time to growing my Photography Business.
School: We homeschool, so when I get back from Mass around 10 am, it’s one on one time with each child. They’re in their teens now and capable of doing quite a bit on their own, which is great but I still need to stay on top of things.
And that’s the morning. I have added some links to this page, as an Amazon Associate if you buy products through me, I will receive a small commission for it. So I thank you in advance for blessing my family through your purchases. 😀
