Friday Five 4 21 17

Happy Friday!! Why do we love Friday more than any other day of the week?

I'm joining the Friday 5 Link up with  Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness.



My friend from work and I were talking about motivators to get out of bed in the morning. she says she thinks of reasons to call off, and convinces herself to not call off. When I wake up in the morning, I think of reasons to get up, they are almost always small things...
 
Top 5 Things to get me out of bed on Weekdays

1. Delicious Body Wash - If I'm going to be in the shower at 6 am, I need to have the best smelling body wash! no bland body wash in my house!

Roger and I smell amazing ... when we are first out of the shower... don't try to smell us at the end of the day.


2. The Softest body lotion- Again, it's all about pampering myself early in the morning. I currently am using Johnson & Johnson's baby lotion... because it's cheaper, it smells amazing and it makes my skin so very soft!

3. Pastries- I suck at arriving on time to work, and I have to motivate myself to leave home earlier to avoid the traffic, buying a pastry is my reward for leaving home with enough time to arrive at work on time.



4. An organized get out plan- My clothes for the week are laid out on Sunday. My bag for work, and my son's lunch, get laid out the night before. Things are not going, if they are not ready the night before... I have forgotten to take my snacks because they were not next to my work bag.

5. Counting the days - There is days that the only thought in my head is "8.5 hours of work, 8.5 hour, 8.5 hours"....

Today I got up on time, but only because I had planned to pick up breakfast for me and my work friend!

What gets you up in the morning?

  1. OMG I hear ya on the good smelling body wash! Since I came back from Hershey I've been on the hunt for chocolate body scrub! Unfortunately I think it might be a Hershey exclusive!

    1. Have you tried the Vaseline's cocoa butter lotion? That is the closest I have ever gotten to chocolate smelling lotions. Does Hershey sell their stuff?

  2. I lay all my stuff out too! I have 2 hours of work left because I am leaving early for a doctor appt. 2 hours doesn't sound too bad! And I still have 20 min of lunch left! I workout first thing in the morning so my motivation is that if I don't get out of bed NOW, I miss my workout! :)

  3. I have to get up to get my son off to school--yes, he's 17 but if I don't get him up, he won't go. God help me when he goes to college. Plus I do make him a smoothie in the morning. Everyone tells me I spoil him, but isn't that what moms are supposed to do?

    And yes, I look forward to my morning shower with good smelling bath gel! Usually it's lavender.

    1. OmG! your son is in for an awakening when he goes to college! or lack of awakening! I'm sure he will do fine, just remind him to not schedule 8: am classes! We are here to spoil our kids!

  4. I get up to work out and have my "me" time and get out the door before traffic sucks. Traffic is such a motivator because 10 minutes can turn into 20 with traffic around here!

  5. really not much gets me out of the bed in the morning. And I just have to walk down my tiny hallway to my office. Maybe my paycheck.. hmmm.
    Body wash wise I am using a coconut dream something from bath & body works. Don't worry I won't try to smell you at the end of the day ;)

    1. If I were you.. I would not even get out of bed and just start work right there! My sister used to work from home on snow days, most days she would only get out of bed to get more coffee!

      Coconut bodywash is the best there is!!

  6. I get myself out of bed by promising myself that after work I can come right home and take a nap. I literally make this promise to myself every day. Of course once I'm up and rolling I no longer need that end of day nap but it definitely helps when my eyelids refuse to open when the alarm goes off! :D
