Well, I already feel like I’ve been back to school F-O-R-E-V-E-R! I’m sure you do too. The toughest thing about going back to school is getting back into routine. All Power Girls should have a routine! Good routines = Power, Passion and Performance.
How do you start off your day? Do you slowly roll out of bed and just make it to school on time without doing anything special? Do you eat breakfast before you leave the house? Do any of you get your body woken up with a quick Power Girl work out?
Well I want to tell you what I do. If you do what I do, then you will wake up productive and stay that way all day long! I get up early because I have a date with my bus driver every morning at 7:40. Most of you won’t have such an early morning, so adjust your schedule to make it work for you.
So I get up at 6:00 and spend at least 5 minutes with Jesus every morning. Sometimes I listen to Christian music on my iPod, other times I pray and other mornings I read a devotion or my bible. Now I know lots of you have different beliefs so whatever your beliefs are spend 5 minutes thinking about them. If you don’t have any beliefs then you could read an inspiring quote every morning.
The next thing I do is get out of bed, make it (my mom likes me to make it so tight that she can bounce a quarter off it) and get my clothes for the day all laid out. I put workout clothes on first thing in the morning and by 6:30 I’m downstairs and ready to workout. I workout, get dressed into my school clothes and am ready for a Power Girl breakfast by 7:00.
My mom and dad make my breakfast for me and it always has protein and carbs. For those of you that don’t know what protein and carbs are, make sure you read my next post and I’ll tell you all about them and how much to eat of them too. My breakfasts are not fancy, don’t take too much time to prepare and I can eat them up fast.
I am the slowest eater in my family so by the time I’m done, I don’t have to fight for the bathroom to brush and floss my teeth. That’s right, floss teeth. If you only brush you are missing at least a third of your tooth. That’s just nasty! I make sure my hair is pulled back nicely, (I always have it in a pony tail because I don’t want head lice and it is harder for those critters to get into hair that is pulled back), I wash my face, do a once over in the mirror to make sure I didn’t miss anything, and then I leave. I need to be out of the house by 7:30 so I can catch my bus.
My mornings go by fast, but they are productive. I’ve connected with God, exercised my body, fed it too, cleaned myself up and made it to the bus stop with 5 minutes to spare. Power, Passion and Performance are mine for the rest of the day! Watch how great you’ll feel if you follow the same routine! It’s like you can breathe deeper!
I will be filming some shorter workouts over the next month to be released in time for Christmas, called Time Crunched, and they involve a totally new workout style called ‘Sprint training’. Super intense and super results in half of the time. They will be more intense but will only take 10 MINUTES! Now come on, anyone can find just 10 minutes to work out! I want to make sure that I have a workout for everyone! If you can’t start your day with a Power Girl workout make sure you fit it in some where in your day. I want YOU to be the BEST that you can be!
Start your day off productive. Make a routine by yourself or with the help of your parents and follow it! No excuses, YOU CAN DO IT and you are creating great habits for the rest of your life. Remember: Better Choices = A Better Body and a Better Life!
Find a way or make a way!
