- scheduled out my whole day for today in Google Calendar time blocks- specific time slots for workout, kid stuff, work, breaks. I had fallen off being more intentional with my time and I KNOW this DOES NOT WORK for me! “Going with the flow” when trying to work from home with 2 kids around is just a recipe for disaster.
- re-committed to getting back on the workout wagon. After our trip my week was so chaotic, I made the choice to forgo them. But that is usually an important staple in my life, so it’s back in as of yesterday. Morning Meltdown 100: LIT Cardio & Freestyle Flow coming up next!
- recommitted to getting up when my alarm goes off. I had slipped into a habit of hitting snooze and then lying in bed scrolling around on my phone, then saying, “How is it already so late?!?!”. I have a lot of things I love to squeeze into this early morning time (that don’t happen later in the day), so I need to GET UP and get going. That extra time lounging, while it feels “good” for a moment, ultimately messes up my morning and doesn’t help me. I end up regretting it.
- I already made a list for the boys of the things they need to do today AND I scheduled in a longer lunch break and have already told the boys that is when I will be available to them for whatever random needs they come up with.

Nobody is on it!” He cautions against getting used to letting “almost there” be close enough to completion and becoming complacent. Read the full message here.
