GOOD Morning

Good morning friends! Hope you all slept great! Happy Friday! You guys ready for the weekend?

This morning, I started my day off with my Quiet time.. So many of you always ask what my quiet time is

My Quiet mornings are just time to myself, before I start my day doing anything else. I have a perfect pattern that I end up somehow following each day.

  • Wake up
  • Roll out of bed
  • Make my bed with my millions of pillows (I love them!)
  • Go downstairs, get my coffee (coffee, almond milk, agave)
  • Come back upstairs, sit in my comfy chair with my blanket and coffee, and read my devotionals
  • Sit at my desk with music on (soft, loving music- not rap!) and write in my journal about thankfulness
  • Then, after I have written in my journal and had me time, I get online and check out all of my favorite blogs & go comment crazy
  • Next, I make breakfast, snap photos, brighten them up, and write to you all
  • Usually following all of this comes the gym, but some mornings my quiet time just ends up getting extended πŸ˜‰

Today, the gym is happening right after this post. I am going to a Step II Class (fancy!!)

In my cereal this morning, I had-

  • 1/2 bran flakes
  • 1/2 high fiber cereal
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/8 cup baby (wild) blueberries
  • unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tbsp. almond butter

And of course, coffee. I had my coffee with breakfast black, as I like black coffee with food

The coffee before breakfast had agave and almond milk

Truly, I usually go through coffee phases which include:

  • black coffee
  • almond milk and agave coffee
  • almond milk and half & half coffee
  • coffee mate creamyyy coffee

As you can see, they usually get worse and worse for me, haha! The coffee mate seasons always end up being around the Holidays. I wonder why? πŸ˜‰

I think I am spoiled with my food. I never just have a “regular bowl” of cereal. All of my food must be full of flavor.

Enough said. Spoiled!

How are you spoiling yourself this morning?

  1. I have a question for you, I am trying to get the last 20-25 pounds off and have been eating healthy but am wondering if I should possibly cut the carbs out at night time for my dinners while I am trying to lose the weight? I would love your opinion! Thanks in advance!

    • Hi! I am no expert, but you could try it and see how it works for you. Try it for a week, maybe no carbs after lunch, and see how that goes. If it’s unrealistic for you, try something else. For me, I make it a goal to stop eating at 8 pm, I try to eat the healthiest version of all my cravings, and I always make whatever I am eating taste VERY good so that I am satisfied. All of those things seem to keep me in balance. Also, I do workouts that I really enjoy so that I look forward to them πŸ™‚ Try a few different things out and see which small changes work for you, and stick to those

  2. Your quiet time sounds lovely. I usually have my “quiet” time at night, because of my son. Even if I manage to roll out of bed before he’s jumping up and down wanting out of his crib he always manages to hear me and wakes up himself ;). Quiet time is highly recomended to any and everyone!

    I do have a question though, what is your normal gym routine? What are your favorite exercises? How long do you typically work out?

    • I agree, and at least you get it in!

      I almost always do the classes at my gym. I do step & body works. Step is cardio, and thats for 55 minutes and then we do abs/stretching. Body Works is all toning with weights (5lbs) and using your body weight (squats etc…)… My gym is an awkward place to lift weights on my own, so If I workout outside of a class, I usually do 30-60 minutes of cardio, and then do stretching and abs on the mats. The amount of cardio really depends on how much time I have. I do the elliptical, and I love it. I don’t mind staying on there for an hour.
