What is your daily weekday morning routine? (1 Viewer)

The hobby thread got me thinking... there is a very diverse group of folks here and I'm wondering what everyone's daily routine is morning-wise.  Do a lot of you get up early to exercise, for example?  For me....

7am - wake up and get the kids ready for school, along with shower and dress for work

8am-ish - get the kids to school and get to work

9am-ish - make myself a cup of coffee and eat a protein bar

Pretty mundane.  :(   Anyone else do a crap-ton of stuff in the morning?

Work from home and we are "Empty Nester's" now.

Work week schedule is:

Wake up at 5:15am, open dog door, make coffee, feed the dog and cat, start working.. Few hours later shower..

Since I have to be available until 3:30pm( so a 10 hour logged in day), I take 2 hours during the day as my lunch hour...
During the summer I'll go out for a hike at the local State Park, or do some wood burning, work my on Vineyard..

In the winter, when we have snow, I go Cross Country skiing. But with not enough snow this winter yet to ski on I've been wasting the days away playing Civilization and watching Netflix...

Going to Need a new winter hobby if Mother Nature doesn't start producing snow. :rant:

Just thinking about exercising in the morning leaves me feeling punchy.  I forget what life was like before the lunch workout and I don't want to remember. 

My morning routine depends on who is watching our 3 year old (and where) and what time I'm starting work that day.  But I shower, pack gym bag, prepare food/coffee, etc. the night before so all I need to do for myself is brush my teeth, get dressed, pour coffee, and gather whatever I need for that day.

You poop first thing every morning?  I can't remember the last time I pooped before going to work in the morning.  Interesting.

Up around 5.  Drink coffee, watch tv, internet until 6.  If I'm not a lazy POS, workout until 6:50, then shower and off to work by 7:15 for arrival right before 8.

But today that schedule was the same except I extended the drink coffee, watch tv, internet until 7:00.

I feel so much better when I workout in the morning but man it's hard sometimes.

I've recently converted to this also, and I hate it.  For years I have always been a ~10am pooper, but for some reason since around Thanksgiving it hits me about 7:30 am right as I'm leaving the house, so I either better make time for it before I leave, or I'm not gonna make it to work.  I hate the early morning poos

7:20am radio alarm wakes me with news

8:00am dog jumps on bed to cuddle

8:30am roll out of bed. Poop, pee, shave, brush teeth, shower

9:30am turn on computer in home office for work

 
Alarm goes off at 6:23.  I hit snooze until close to 7 because my life is a Greek tragedy and I don't really want to live it anymore.

Go into the darkest bathroom with a loud exhaust fan, throw a towel over my head and poop in the dark, anxiously wondering what sort of misery awaits me once I wipe myself and open the door to the world.

Go to another bathroom, this one with a window that I despise because it allows sunlight to penetrate the walls.  Let the shower run until it's scalding hot, resting my head on the sink, eyes closed, daydreaming about falling back to sleep.

Shower in the dark.  Not even I want to see my grotesque figure naked.  Once a week I'll shave in there.  It doesn't even matter anymore.  Nothing I do to my appearances hurts or helps me.  I am a physical lost cause now.

By 7:30, I emerge, find something to wear, usually jeans, a shirt, a jacket that I won't take off because I'm always cold.

Go downstairs, grab coffee, maybe find something to take for a lunch, bid farewell to a wife and kids who ignore me and I'm sure are happy when I leave.

Fight traffic to work, usually listening to NPR because there's no commercials and I've heard every song already that will play on the FM stations.  I can't do sports talk anymore.  If I want bad sports takes, I'll listen to my own thoughts.  My CD player broke 10 years ago.  I don't have the money to fix it.  I don't even care.

Usually up around 5, sometimes earlier. It's either a back problem or a ####### cat meowing in my face that does it. I then go out on to the couch which solves both the back problem because I can sit more upright and the cat will stop bothering me.

Try to sleep until about 5:45, then up to go to the gym in my building.

Back by 6:30, shower and get ready for work. Mix in watching the first 10-15 minutes of Boomer and Gio which I DVR everyday. 

Out the door by 7:20, at my desk in midtown by 7:55ish.

I don't see my 2 yo daughter which is a bummer (at least in person...she's typically up for a bit around the same time I am, but she entertains herself in her crib before going back to sleep...so I peek in on her through the monitor).

Since i work on a military base though, I'm the last of the 5  civilians in my office to come in.

Feed and walk dogs.

Make coffee.

Iron clothes.

Shower.

Have some coffee and watch some local news.

I naturally get up at about 7:30.  I don't need to leave the house until 9:30.    In that 2 hours, I pretty much do what I'd do if it was after work besides watching tv.

Do you have a dedicated doggy door that you close at night?

I feel the exact opposite about snow for almost the same reason.    As long as the ground is clear, I can keep mountain biking which makes the winter go by so much faster.  Once that snow hits, mountain biking becomes iffy.

This is my Tuesday-Sat schedule.  Sundays and Mondays I get up whenever I wake up.

I don`t have to go to our office in the mornings.  I usually go right to my scheduled appointments. I make coffee the night before so it brews at 5:30.

5:45: Get up, let dogs out and have coffee

6:00  I am have a home gym, work out from 6-7am almost every day. If I don`t work out I walk the dogs for an hour.

7:00  Eat after workout. Protein shake or a oatmeal with protein and other items like blueberries, almonds.

7:20 go into home office and check e-mails. 

8:00 take shower.

8:30 Out the door.

The good thing is now I never schedule anything on Monday until after 12 noon, and Friday`s all my appointments are before noon. I deal with all the Big 3 buyers and they are never available afternoon on Friday anyway.

So I am squeezing almost an extra day off. There is nothing better than sleeping until you wake up on a winter Monday morning after a long weekend.

Wake-up between 6:00 to shower and get dressed.

6:30ish I eat breakfast which is usually yogurt and a banana while I make my coffee, pack my lunch and fill up my 2 water bottles for the day.

6:50 leave for work 

It's not thrilling.

I'm more surprised by the length of the routines.  Some people are up 2-2.5 hours before the leave for work??  That's crazy to me unless you have trouble sleeping later.

Mine varies and I need to get in to a better routine.  Here's my typical one:

6:00 - Wake-up to get youngest kid up - we have one in elementary, one in middle school and 2 in HS.  The youngest has the earliest bus

6:05 - Make coffee and drop a deuce if needed

6:10 - Check weather and news - shave once or twice a week

6:15 - Listen to tunes or a podcast while I shower and get my clothes ready

6:30 - Get dressed and drink coffeee

6:45 - To go coffee and leave for the bus stop

Usually, I'm at work around 8:00 or so.  Some days I will go in a little later and drive my daughter to school;  some days I work from home so will sleep in a little later;  every day I hate having to go to work

Yes... The door has a security lock on the inside. At night, or if we are leaving the house, we just put the door on...

Greatest home improvement project I've ever done, hands down! 
So nice to just open the door in the morning and let the dog go in and out to the fenced in backyard when it wants. :thumbup:

Agreed.   A doggy dog is pretty amazing.   I never got the lock feature.   I don't even lock my front door though.  My doggos would turn on me if I took away their ability to go into the yard while I'm at work.

I feel like the world is coming to an end on the 2 mornings my wife works and I have to get up at 6:30 with my kids. The other 5 days, I get up when my body is done. Usually around 7:30 or so. I'm usually in bed by 11:00pm too. I love sleep.  :shrug:

Very thin facial hair.  If I'm particularly lazy, I won't shave some days.  When I do it is with an electric and takes me less than three minutes.  It might take three minutes on Mondays since I don't shave Fri-Sat-Sun.
