What REALLY happened....

Good intentions are worth something right?  We should get credit when we really intend to do something; make a change...  Because, if we don't get there the first time at least we are starting on a path -- or, intending to.
Okay.  So, maybe good intentions aren't worth any credit.  Dr. Phil summed it up in one of his books (yes, I read several of them) "Life takes action."  Well, I fully intended for action to happen at 5:15 this morning....but when the cell phone vibrated under my pillow?  I layed there contemplating if this was the best idea after all....
Until, it wriggled out a reminder vibration.  At which time -- I decided to wait and see what the coffee maker said.  At 5:30 the coffee maker sounded off in hot percolation [that should be spelled perc-u-lation -- there is no "O" when I say it]  that "I still had time" to make that action happen.
I continued to lay there -- on the couch (I'd played musical beds at 3:15 a.m.) until....I'd wasted away the good intention.
WHAT?  You are asking, was my intention?  Well you see, I had this big plan to get up at 5:15 (not really so early, at all) and pre-heat the oven while I pried my eyes open one at a time and put on the ol'sneakers. 
Next step was to cut the breakfast sausage into patties and place in cookie fashion on a tin foil lined cookie sheet to "bake" the sausage patties.  See, if I bake them then I don't have to tend to them and I could walk on the treadmill instead.
The TREADMILL.  This was my intention.  I thought I could steal an extra 30 minutes from the 24 in a day and make it worth about an hour.  [ie: while I was activating my metabolism "invisible" me would be in the kitchen cooking sausage patties and baking biscuits.]
The coffee is quite good -- though, I agree with knight.  One hit of "Tiramisu" creamer and that's all I can take.  Second cup merits the French Vanilla -- or maybe even some plain ol'2% milk.
I will say that I'm half way there.  I'm dressed, and breakfast is halfway done.  I've blogged about my lack of follow through.  Now it is off to my "art class" [bathroom vanity full of various brushes, creams, and face colors] and then I'll do that super-spin "Wonder Woman" style and make up those 30 minutes of treadmill -- I sware I will!
[Even if it takes me all day!]  Tomorrow.  I promise.
Happy Wednesday Morning!  How's your day percu'latin'?

I'm with you there, FW: we have these great intentions, but dang it! that pillow sure is comfy.
I can't do a treadmill or anything like that in the mornings because I'd fall off! (Been there, done that, not going there again...even if it WOULD make great blog fodder!)
Now I'm only on my 2nd cup of coffee and my 2nd load of laundry, so I'm officially behind the curve... Esp. since the last 2 kids got on the bus an hour ago!

OH! And here I thought (he said, laying it on thick so maybe he would win a PRIZE Friday) that you rolled out of bed looking simply gorgeous?????????

LOL-It is like we were one this morning...I set the alarm for 4:30 but didn't get up until 5:45, yes I hit snooze(only a 10min snooze)for over an hour...Lazy I tell you what. And I did get my hair fixed but no makeup today. I managed scrambled eggs and sausage(the microwave kind screw the stove!), and didn't have time for coffee, did a energy drink instead...Cheers happy Wednesday!

christi fairyflutters has me all wound up to get back on the treadmill. Especially, after I tried jump roping with the kids and lasted about five spins.

And, you were my "early morning" inspiration since you do the 4:30 thing.

I guess I let us all down.

Tomorrow! I promise! Really!

I always have great intentions to get up and move early. I always have great intentions ... that fall short. I really want to start using our treadmill.

Hopefully all will go better in the a.m. for you.

The only way you could get me on a treadmill at 5:30 in the morning would be if I had never gone to sleep in the first place. I would also need a couple cups of coffee.

If you put the little snausage patties on a rack on the cookie sheet then they don't cook in the grease and are healthier. Yeah, I know. Healthy sausage. But still, less grease is good too.

Same with bacon.

Not that I ever actually do those things. I fry it all up in a pan and then use the grease to make my eggs.

But, if I ever wanted to make it all healthy like, I would put it in the oven using a little rack on a cookie sheet. ;-)

Farmer*swife said...

jay that's a great idea? Will the bacon still be crispy?

I bake the bacon to because it's easy, low maintenance and easy clean up (the tin foil!).

How do you bake the bacon? Never tried that.
