MORNING ROUTINES ARE ESSENTIAL IN ATTAINING YOUR GREATEST POTENTIAL

February 2017.

I have came to  realize how important a morning routine is.

How essential it is.

How necessary is it.

How it makes you a more productive person during the day.

IT HAS BEEN PROVEN BY ME! lol

I realized this because during my fitness journey, I got up EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING and did the same thing over and over…

EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

I got up, I put on working out clothes, took pics for snap chat , do my workout routine and took more pics, I then made breakfast or some fruit juice smoothie and whatever came after

(This was for the early snapchat days, when it was more personal and not much persons were on it. However I no longer use Snapchat or Facebook because as you know I am doing the entire less social media thing)

With the exception of  Instagram and Twitter  of course, they are my babies, I enjoy it. they are the medium by which I share my positive thoughts.

Anyways so back to the point of this blog. YES ..my FITNESS JOURNEY MORNING ROUTINE. 

I did this EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

I got up, I put on working out clothes, took pics for snap chat , do my workout routine and took more pics, I then made breakfast or some fruit juice smoothie and whatever came after.

You got my point?

This was during summer so you know I had time, but I could have chose to not do anything and just be “comfortable” like what many persons are doing but I decided to push my limits, because…well… I don’t have any.

AND I CONTINUED MY ROUTINE WHEN LIFE GOT BUSY!

YES I HAD TO MAKE A FEW TWEAKS HERE AND THERE BUT I CONTINUED MY JOURNEY.

“Guh deh good gyal”

I would compliment myself for continuing this journey, making time and not having any excuses.

YOU DON’T HAVE LIMITS EITHER. 

DO NOT THINK LIMITS. DON’T YOU DARE!

If you told me two years ago that I would be pushing  a few abs in 2017 I would have laughed and said

“you love joke”  .. I am sure.

BACK TO THE MAIN POINT!

Well…you know…I started losing my buzz… you can say….I got bored.

I accomplished this goal…So what’s next Kris ?

I felt like I needed a NEW CHALLENGE a NEW BUZZ

I literally did not even feel like working out anymore because I did this for a long time…of course I might be exaggerating on the  EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

I also want you to know that.. I had  down days, a few KFC days, a few don’t want to get out  of bed today days, a few alcohol consumption weekends…but that was me being human…but when I am KRIS-ANN I am pretty unstoppable and miserable. lol

As I said I DON’T THINK LIMITS 

But MAJORITY OF THE DAYS

I did it… EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

you thought my baby abs just appeared because the universe felt like giving it to me?

NAH FAM…I worked my ass off…

Literally.

So…

So I reflected and said

Kris why don’t you have the drive to work out anymore?

and then like a switch in my head that flicks  ON I said

Maybe you just need to try something different..

I thought.

Hmmmm…

I always wanted to do yoga….

and I learned that..for me to be doing the same thing over and over

MADE ME SUCCESSFUL ONCE SO WHY NOT IMPLEMENT IT AGAIN!

It allowed me to accomplish my fitness goal.

I got up, I put on working out clothes, took pics for snap chat , do my workout routine and took more pics, I then made breakfast or some fruit juice smoothie and whatever came after.

EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING

So I decided that for 2017

WHY NOT CONTINUE THAT MORNING ROUTINE..but add a TWIST

BRILLIANT KRIS!

I THOUGHT! 

So here goes.

Instead of getting up at 7am, I now get up at 5:45am and out of the bed by 6:00am

EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING ( including weekends because this is new to me NO DAY OFFS ALLOWED)

  1. PRAYER IS KEY. I give thanks, I thank the supreme being for allowing me to see another day.
  2. YOUTUBE…I start playing a motivational video or uplifiting music…I listen to the words keenly (uplifitng music goes from soca, reggae and r&b )
  3. I go to the bathroom and sit on the best seat in the house…(DWL I had second thoughts about putting this here but…“fearless”)
  4. I go to the kitchen and heat water for my green tea
  5. I am a neat freak so before I can concentrate and FOCUS the way I want to I HAVE TO SPREAD MY BED AND PUT EVERYTHING WHERE IT BELONGS. HAVE.TO. LIKE THAT IS A NECESSITY FOR ME.
  6. Make my GREEN Tea NO SUGAR, bun fyah pon SUGAR inna tea!
  7. Then I do like 10-15 minutes of YOGA and/or Muscle building exercises (such a squats, sit-ups, pushups, walls sits just to name a FEW) while sipping my tea.
  8. I then read something, anything, a few quotes, a page from a book, but it has to be positive some way or form.
  9. I then shower, get dress, Pray again and leave.

MY ALARM SET UP IS THIS

a050ee9f-c0b1-4330-9c4d-43465c52ca6a

I do this

EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING.

I am pretty new at this and have been doing it for approximately 3 weeks now.

EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING 

Of course I have down days when I get all human and what not lol  

a few Popeyes and Pizzahut days here and there (yea KFC chicken is too oily for me now lol like I never thought I would see the day where I say that, only thing I get from KFC is a ZINGER), a few don’t want to get out  of bed today days, a few alcohol consumption weekends…but that is me being human…but when I decide to be KRIS-ANN I am pretty GREAT AND MISERABLE. lol

So in the next two years (2019) when you see that my leg can go around my neck you cant say I didn’t warn you!

I am very flexible to date, my husband WILL love me a little extra for that. lol

WHY I CHOSE YOGA?

Well …for one I wanted something NEW and it challenges me because I have to focus on the formation of positions, breathing techniques and balance ALL AT ONCE!

While usually I am use to a more upbeat routine ..

But that’s where I practice my discipline.. I just do it. I stop thinking about what i have to do and just DO.

I am slowly but surely becoming a DOER 

I do Yoga because I want to improve my flexibility, strength, my mantra, be good to my mind, body and soul.

Trust me it is a very relaxing exercise and don’t take it for a joke it can be extremely intense! It just had me fooled.

But most importantly I have started YOGA so approximately in the next two years I can place my legs around my neck.

Very important.

I hope you can come up with a morning routine to suit you and your goals so your mood and energy level can be maximized for your day to day activities.

TRUST ME IT HELPS!
