I’m Willingly Setting My Alarm for 5:30 AM…?!?! | Motivation + Exercising Tips & Tricks

FaF Workout Tips

Hello and welcome back to Forge A Frenzy!!!

*If you’re here for motivational tips & tricks from myself and my besties, scroll to the bottom. I typed out a fourth of my life story before getting to the good stuff.*

If you know me, you know that I am not, and have never been, a “morning person”. I like slow mornings. I set 2-5 alarms and they go off for about an hour. Seriously… I hit snooze more than anyone should. Sorry to my future husband. I was a tried and true night owl and did my best work in the wee hours of the night. During the first 2 years of high school, I rode the bus to school. The bus that picked me up at my house at 6:20 AM!!!!! I mean, looking back, I don’t really know how I did that y’all. I struggled making it to my 9 AM’s in college and genuinely couldn’t fathom scheduling myself willingly to be somewhere by 8 AM.

While I could write a whole post about my snooze issue, this post is about what the deciding factor was in my life that made me start setting my alarm (willingly) for 5:30 AM and what is keeping me going.

Two Words: Spin Class.

Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

I am all about eating healthy and I am all about eating healthy EASILY. If it is too much work and I am not in the mood, I will chose unhealthy snacks/meals over the healthy ones. And that is not the right move! I am currently trying to eliminate dairy completely from my diet, which is horrible considering pizza is a main food group in my book. My go-to breakfast and snack currently is overnight oats! They are healthy, filling, and EASY. I have many different recipes that I rotate but the one I have chosen to showcase today is an apply cinnamon situation.

Early morning meeting?  Needing a quick meal before pilates? This is the perfect option.
It is easy to make multiple different recipes the night before and have your choice of flavor waiting for you the next day.

Hiiiiii friends!

I am always searching for something filling, healthy, yummy, cheap, and quick. This meal falls into all of those categories! I also struggle with my immense love for cheese and being lactose intolerant. You gotta work around the dairy. Since feta is goat cheese, my stomach is happy! You can add whatever your favorite sides are and whatever spices and garnishes you fancy to this yummy entree.
