Trying to Better Myself: Entry 2


Sooooooooo..... I woke up yesterday aaaaaaaaand... I just wasn't having it.


I woke up later than the day before and I had NO motivation what so ever and I kept forcing myself to go back to sleep. I don't actually know what kept me so unmotivated.


Maybe it was because it was too cold to get up?


Maybe I just knew that everyone was home today and didn't want to talk to anyone?


I don't know what the reason was, but either way, I eventually I forced myself to wake up, get out of bed, go to the bathroom and do my morning routine. It took me a while to get moving, but it happened and I did it. 10 POINTS FOR RAVENCLAW!!!

By the time I took a shower and got ready for my day I was still feeling like... bleh, BUT I put on my big girl pants and went to do my work out.


Was I ready for this?


Naaaaaaaah.... but I wanted to get as much stuff done as possible, before everyone woke up, so I got to it.


Just like the day before, I did 3 reps of:


  • 10 squats

  • 10 push-ups (the girl ones let's be real here)

  • 10 sit-ups


Dang I am so lazy... what on earth is my problem?


Oh well, I did it anyway and then I laid on the floor till I felt like moving. It was probably like 5 minutes or so. No biggie.


Yesterday's routine was a little bit different from the day before. Since I have been trying to better myself, I thought it would be best to incorporate the rosary into my morning routine.


Unfortunately, I am having a hard time finding any one of my many MANY rosaries. I think they might be in a box somewhere. Or at my mom's house.

I really hope I didn't lose them...


But anywaaaaays... so I did the rosary. I used this itty bitty fancy booklet that was given to me a long time ago and it was helpful, but I still didn't have a rosary, so I used my fingers to keep track of where I was.

Now that I am looking at the front of the booklet... I realize thaaaaat there is a rosary on the front and I TOTALLY could have used that.


I am actively face palming myself.


Oh well, next time maybe.


Actually, next time I am going to use a different book. This one was really short and didn't specify when certain things were supposed to be done and on what bead, so I had to go off of memory and let's face it... my memory isn't the best ha!

I have more booklets so its okay.


I think I will try them all to see which one I like best and if I can't find one I like, I will either go online and find one that fits my needs or make my own. It could be fun.


After I was finished with the rosary I did the rest of my morning routine and washed some dishes, listened to a podcast, and made some breakfast.


I know it doesn't look like much, but I enjoyed every bite.


I freaking love waffles!


Anyway, the podcast was alright, but it was mostly for small businesses and come on let's face it, my business is SO small it is hardly a business, so it didn't really benefit me too much.


Now that we are on the topic of podcasts though, I did listen to one the other day that made me think about my life and what not, so I think I want to insert that here. Well, at least talk about it here.


In short, it was about how to discipline and how to create a habit, so I have been trying to create the habit of a morning routine, but it takes 30 days to create a habit and I am already struggling, but that is okay, I am learning as I go and that is okay.


So reflecting on that I would like to touch base on that by using the series of questions I learned:


30 Day Discipline Challenge


What is one thing in your life that you want to be more disciplined in?

  • Morning routine


Today my intention is...

  • To do my morning routine <3


My purpose for that is...

  • To get me ready and prepared for what will come my way today


The skill I'm going to build is...

  • Day preparation to keep me grounded.


At the end of the day, look back and reflect:


What did I do?

  • I did my morning routine


How did I do?

  • I did pretty good, just a little slower than before.


When events popped up, did I respond well?

  • I worked through my ick in order to get it done.


Was I disciplined or default?

  • I was disciplined enough to do my routine.


So yeah over all I think I did pretty good. But, that's where I am ending that. Thank you very much and see ya next time. Bye.
