- Time spent with God.
- Date nights and quality time with my wife.
- Fully engagement and time with my kids.
- Working out on a regular basis.
- Time for fellowship with other Christians.
- Structuring my time to incorporate all those things.
So starting it all of this off on a random Monday can seem overwhelming, so I first wanted to get back on track with working out and managing my time better. In order to do that, I am wanted to be in bed by 10pm and up by 6 or 6:30. This routine enables me to work from 6:00 to 9:30 (included in that time is reading the Bible and working on my Faithful Fathers site). Then while Alicia and the girls head off to LA Fitness I can work out and shower from 9:30 to 11:00.
By being in bed by 10:00pm I can spend some time reading and relaxing with Alicia. I had usually, worked and then crashed...which wasn't working. Plus, getting up early enabled me to start the day on my terms. I also got the support of my amazing wife and said she will boot me out of bed if I hit the snooze button too much!!!
So last night, I went to bed at 10pm and read two chapters in my current book "Uncommon Life" by Tony Dungy. This morning, I got up at 6:30, worked and took conference calls until 10:30. I also read some passages in the bible and spent some time on this blog. Then I decided I was going to go for a 2.5 mile run and then come back and do stretching, push ups, sit ups, etc...
