My Morning Update 03/08/2018

Goodmorning! Well, this morning I had a rough start. I could have easily slept for another hour but I dragged my butt out of bed. Then, baby I woke up screaming that she was hungry so I had to stop and nurse. So I didn’t get to my morning exercise till 5:35 am and I still have breakfast to make and have to get dressed for the day so I will make this short.

My exercise this morning was

My Morning Update 03/07/2018

I’m back!

So after taking an unplanned break after having a baby, I am finally back. I was successful in having a natural birth, I will be posting my birth story at some point, and transitioning to having two kids and D going back to work and taking a baby with us on all of A’s many outings. So ya it took a while. But last week I tried out a new alarm app (Sleep Cycle) on my phone. It wakes you up in a half hour window based on your movement picking the optimal time for you to wake up based on your sleep rhythm. Yes, I know this isn’t a new concept and I have tried other apps like this before, but this one does not require a wearable or to be on the mattress when you sleep. This app uses the microphone to figure out when you have come out of a deep sleep and know when to wake you up, and if that doesn’t creep you out then the good news is that it seems to work fairly well. Even though I do plan on eventually buying a smartwatch since I have been wanting one since they first came out, Sleep Cycle is defiantly a reasonable option for sleep tracking and easy waking up until that time.

So back to last week. I successfully woke up at 5 am or sometimes 4:45 am all week long. I am back to exercising most mornings, my house is starting to become cleaner room by room, and I have organized enough to start teaching A to read with daily school work. I will probably make a post more on our process of learning to read as well.

So on to this morning. I woke up at 5 am and started my morning with some yoga! I started a yoga challenge by Bad Yogi. If you would like to join me here is day one.

I found it nice and simple but invigorating.

Now I am brewing coffee in my french press and writing to the universe, OK most likely just my extended family and friends and only some of them, but I can pretend!
