Frumps to Pumps Challenge Week #4 (End)

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.

That is the thing...there is lots to do before the kids are up...and it is hard to prioritize.

My kids are up at 6...With E not sleeping well, I am rarely up before them.
