I resist the urge to photoshop a dozen photos of myself...
I survived the 7 Days Experiment. It was actually quite a pleasure to get up and get around each morning with thoughts to how presentable I was rather than just rolling out of bed, turning on the computer, and getting to work.
It felt like I had a few more moments of connecting with the hubby in the mornings, which is always a bonus, but there were some unexpected benefits, as well, like better posture. I didn't spend my warm-up time running fingers through messy hair (cause it was already fiddled with) and slouching over my keyboard, surfing the internet, trying to get myself motivated to get started. I guess it switched up my morning routine enough that I "woke up" before going to work instead of just easing myself into an awake state of being.
Another side perk (or is it?) is the record-breaking number of photos I took of myself this week to document the experience. I take a lot of pictures as near-daily habit, but I'm rarely on the front side of the camera.
Do I have plans to continue this new routine?
Perhaps. To some extent, anyway.
Hubby has a good summary of everyone's experience on his blog. The kids are eager to try some more new things, so we have another 7 Days project going this week.
