My Morning Routine

Hey Dolls!

Sometimes you Dolls send me emails requesting posts. A while back I received a email from one of you asking about my morning routine. It has taken me awhile to get to it because I didn't really have one at the time it was requested. However, I have recently been motivated to be more productive in the mornings. So, I have come up with a morning routine that works for me. I figured due to that email request that you all would like to see a post on my morning routine. With that said today's post is my morning routine. So, without further rambling let's jump into it!

P.S. If you do not know how to obtain my email, refer to the 'Follow me' tab above. There you will find my email and Google+ account.

Let's begin...

First thing I do when I wake up is make my bed. I try to remind myself to do this but, sometimes I forget. Then, I use the bathroom. I figure that is normal because most of us sleep anywhere from 6-8 hours (maybe more or less.) and that is a long time to go without using the bathroom. So naturally, I go when I wake up.

Once I am finished making my bed and going to the bathroom, I do a morning workout 4-5 times a week.  I always do 75 squats then I do a 30 to 45 minute workout. I use to do abs building workouts in the mornings. Now, I switch between yoga, morning jogs outside, or getting on the elliptical.

After my workout I eat breakfast. That varies depending on what's in my fridge, if I have the energy to cook a meal, how hungry I am, or if I am in a hurry to get somewhere. However, in the last week I have been drinking a 8 oz. glass of cold water with lemon and ginger. I will not say that having lemon and ginger in my water is good tasting but, I will say it is very energizing. Once I have finished eating I take my morning vitamins.

The next thing I do is start the  shower. I prefer my shower water to be hot. While my shower water is warming up I brush my teeth, get my clothes ready, or pack my lunch for school. Then, I take my shower. I don't wash my hair or shave in the mornings because that takes too much time. I prefer my morning showers to be quick.

Once my shower is complete I move onto my day time skin care routine. I recently posted an updated routine that I will link below. Then I get dressed, do my hair, and do my makeup routine. These steps usually takes me 35 to 45 minutes to complete. (By the way, I don't wear makeup everyday so the time could be less. Again it varies.)

After I have completed my makeup and hair I put final touches on my outfit. I.E. perfume, jackets, shoes. jewelry. By the way, don't generally wear much jewelry but, if I am in the mood I will put a little on. At this point I am ready for my day.

P.S. This is my full morning routine. If I am running late or feeling lazy I will not do this routine. I have a lazy day/running late routine on my blog. I will link it below.

That's all folks!

That was my morning routine. I hope you all enjoyed it. If you have questions or comments please feel free to put them in the comments section below.
