I really want this whole waking up early things to work, after writing my post last evening, I sat and wondered why is it that I cannot wake up early. While still pondering over this, I started reading a few blogs and it looks like many of my fellow bloggers are working on developing this habit. It was fun to read their posts and incorporate some of their tips. Did you know there is an entire website dedicated for this, its called how to wake up early.
Other bloggers dealing with the same issue,
– Angeliki on developing her morning routine
– Steve Pavlina’s method to rise early <– Removes the thinking out of waking up and may work, but I haven’t tried it.
Small steps without drastic changes works best. I set my alarm for 6:45 am this morning and it worked! I am really hoping this technique works.
♦ 1/2 cup almond meal
♦1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
♦2 T coconut oil
♦1/4 cup agave
♦Zest of one lemon and one orange
For the chocolate macaroons I added 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa instead of almond meal. The cocoa and agave should be in the same proportion, just so the sweetener can balance the bitterness from the cocoa.
The above measurements gave me about 10 macaroons.
Dinner: Potato in yogurt gravy with quinoa!
Workout: About to head out for a 5k on the treadmill, its raining outside 😦
Motivational quote of the day-
The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.
Question: Early riser or night owl?
