My Miracle Morning #81

So this morning started with the realization that I had slept on my left shoulder wrong and that the muscles did not like it. To top it off I had to deal with two boys, D and A, who didn’t appreciate that I first made them breakfast instead of trying to relieve the pain in my shoulder with some yoga. But I did get another 7 1/2 hours sleep last night so hopefully, my day will level out. I am hoping that a shower helps as well because I haven’t had time to take one yet and it might be throwing me off.

Yesterday I almost hit my step goal of 15,000 and I was able to increase my fluid intake. So not everything is looking dreary.

This morning my exercise was 15 Minute Gentle Prenatal Yoga for Second and Third Trimester + Post-Natal.
I also plan on taking a walk later to help get my steps in.

Affirmations:

  • I will code for at least 30 mins
  • I will work on school for at least 30 mins
  • I will respond calmly and rationally when A asks for my attention

I hope you have a wonderful day!

My Miracle Morning #80

So this morning is looking like it is going to be a good one. I have been suffering from insomnia for the last couple nights and it had really thrown off my hormones. But, last night I was able to get a good 10 1/2 hours of sleep last night. A also slept for a good 12 hours so we are both rested. Yesterday it was so bad that I didn’t meet mt step goal, I took a nap in the morning, and I would burst into tears over anything, and poor A just wanted me to feel better and didn’t understand what was going on. But he did end up getting a donut because I had a horribly intense craving for apple pie filling, the store bought variety. So now I have an apple pie in my fridge. Oh well mostly my cravings have been protein based, I have upped my greens intake, and I am walking a lot so it should balance out.

I am also starting to actually get excited about this pregnancy. I have always been happy about it but it was hard to get excited. For one, it wasn’t new I had already researched everything with A and for another, the first trimester really sucked and the whole pregnancy so far has been hormones, stabbing pain from my round ligaments (normal from what I have read), and periodic dull pain from my c-section scar (also normal). The added discomfort really surprised me, it’s not something that people seem to talk about or that doctors warn you about, though they should, especially since it turns out that your scar tissue can fuse to your uterus and cause you to have extream pain throughout your next pregnancy because it is slowly being ripped from your uterus. Thank goodness I don’t seem to have that problem. So the reason I am getting excited because on Friday we will be finding out if we are having a girl or a boy. This is a new experience for us because with A we didn’t find out until he was born.

My exercise today is going to be a walk to the playground. A really needs to get out of the house for awhile.

Affirmations:

  • I will code for at least 30 mins
  • I will work on school for at least 30 mins
  • I will drink more water
  • I will take at least 15,000 steps or bounces
  • I will respond calmly and rationally when A asks for my attention

I hope you have a wonderful day!

My Miracle Morning #79

So yesterday turned out to be a very bad day.
I felt off all day and I think A picked up on it and was feeling off as well.
But some good things did happen.
I got my new business cards in the mail!
Then to top it off I got my Jamberry StyleBox. So I took some time to do my nails. I think they turned out pretty good. Unfortunately, I tend to only have time to put on a couple wraps before A demands my time so I threw on some gel polish on the other nails.
Also to top off the happy events baby B was very active last night!This morning I let myself sleep in again but I also got a lot better sleep last night. So I’m hoping that today goes a lot better.

This morning I let myself sleep in again but I also got a lot better sleep last night. So I’m hoping that today goes a lot better. My main goal now is to get my website up and running so that I can start getting clients!

Today’s exercise is going to be a walk to the park/playground and walking at least 15,000 steps/bounces.

Affirmations:

  • I will code for at least 30 mins
  • I will work on school for at least 30 mins.
  • I will be calm and rational when interacting with my son and husband.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

My Miracle Morning #77

This morning I woke up at 6:00 am with my alarm. I had a good start to the morning and even finished a book that I was listening to and was able to start a second one. Unfortunately, A has woken up grumpy. So after talking him down and allowing him to wear a shirt that was in the dirty laundry, not really dirty but he had worn it before, we had to rush out the door to get D to work.

Book Currently Reading

Finished – The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results By Gary Keller. It was a very good book even if at times it seemed repetitive. I would recommend it to people who are struggling with productivity in their lives.

Started – By Will Durant The Lessons of History [Hardcover]

Affirmations:

  • I will be calm and rational when A asks for mt attention.
  • I will code for at least 30 mins
  • I will do school for at least 30 mins

I hope you have a wonderful day!

My Miracle Morning #76

This morning is going good so far. I woke up at 6:15 am because A insisted on using me as a pillow. Then after my shower, I cleaned up the kitchen, reheated extra pancakes from this weekend, took out the trash, packed D his breakfast and lunch, and started a soup in the crock pot. This weekend was a little crummy because D and I were both feeling under the weather. D I think has a bad cold and I have allergies and messed up a muscle in my back sleeping. So we spent the weekend playing video games and watched tv. Now it is back to work for me.

Today I plan on walking down to the vets’ office to get Teddy some flea medication. I have been fighting them with natural products for the last couple weeks with no success so it’s time to pull out the big guns. My step goal today is 14,000 steps.

Affirmations:

  • I will code for at least 30 mins
  • I will do school for at least 30 mins
  • I will take at least 14,000 steps
  • I will be calm and rational when A asks for my attention

I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
