I don't know if any of you took the Frumps to Pumps Challenge this month, but I feel like I did pretty good. I would say that I made my goal about 75% of the way. Not the best, but better than I was doing before.
I found figured out that my hardest thing to do was take a shower before the kids got up which was a goal I had. I do get up early, but I have my quiet time, exercise, get on the computer and whoosh, my time is gone and the next thing I know my son is telling me "good morning."
So the second week instead of just saying I needed to be dressed by 8 am, I decided that I needed an earlier goal. So I set my alarm for 7:30 to take a shower. I knew that if I did that I would dressed by 8. Believe me, with 2 kids I don't spend long in the bathroom. So that is what I've been doing.
Also, I am trying to plan my day the night before and specifically all the little things that need to be done. I try to get the hardest things done first. I heard somewhere that's called "Eating Your Frog."
And with that note, I plan to continue to work on my goal until it is a habit. I get up at 5am every morning. That is my habit. I have done that for years even when I had little babies because that is my only ALONE time. I desire it, crave it and need it.
And I hope that you will consider a Frumps to Pumps Challenge for yourself if you are struggling in any area like I was.
