When you are running late in the mornings, what do you skip in your daily habits

I find that I have a routine every day and it's changed a little bit lately. I normally get up and goof off on the computer until about 6am, then I do some ad posting until about 6:30. I work out on the eliptical for a half hour, then post some more ads. By 7:30 I'm in the shower, then I make my lunch, goof off on the computer a bit more, dry my hair and am out the door to go to work no later than 8:15. If for some reason I'm running late or I have an early appointment with a client, I have to skip something in my routine. Well, I usually skip my workout, which is NOT what I should be skipping. I should skip the goofing off and always do my exercise, but it's so much easier to skip it sometimes. Would you skip the workout if you were running late? And still get your "fun" time in on the computer???

Since I skip my work outs everyday I need to skip the fooling around on the computer.

It was nice today and I had a doctors appointment so I walked there and back. it is a mile there and back. It felt good to when I got back but then I was to tired to walk the dogs. I needed to take them to the doctors with me. but they are not well enough behaved yet to do something like that.

I can't really walk anywhere. I think the post office is the closest and it's almost 2 miles away. It's almost a mile to get out of our community... Otherwise, I'd walk everywhere!

I wish I had places to walk without traffic for the dogs. I have to keep them on a pretty short leash because of traffic. I would love to have a bike path or a doggy park close. One of these days I will get my wish.

Even I skip the workout. I also postpone the toothbrush at times, and after sending my whole family to work, then go on with it..ha ha which is sometimes around 11.00 am also..

I usually skip breakfast if I'm running late. That's all I skip since I usually shower at night to save some time in the mornings. I think I would skip the working out just to be on the computer hahaha.

Hey reiny! I think I would probably do the same thing that you do! I would probably skip the workout too! It seems like it would be the most likely choice since it is probably the most least favorite of the "routine"! Although, that is quite a routine you have there for the morning! I would skip alot more of it if it was up to me and sleep those extra hours or so! I would probably not even turn on the computer or just turn it on long enough to check some emails and that would be it! If I didn't have to leave until 8:15 I would sleep until at least 7:00 and skip all the stuff from 6:00 until then!

Well, I used to sleep until 6, walk for an hour, shower at 7, then goof off until around 8-8:15. I've just kinda moved some things around now. I did like walking better, it wasn't as boring as the machine, but it took up an hour every morning...

Having coffee or hot chocolate, I usually have a feww cups of coffee in the morning. If I don't have time it's skepped. I rush around to get ready and do everything else. I don't usually eat breakfast so this is not a problem. I know, I know it's the most important meal of the day. If I go out I will find time to go someplace to eat breakfast. I do like eating out but not alone.

The only breakast I usually eat is my exercise bar, but if I don't exercise I do try to eat something else.

If I were to skip anything in the morning, I think it would probably be the bathroom break. I'd take my shower, unless I was running really late. I used to like to get on the computer but not so much anymore. Now, say my schedule was like yours? I'd probably skip the computering unless I was really addicted to something.

Well, my computer time is my "down" time. It's just stress-free time and I really do enjoy it. I guess you could say it's like my coffee!!!
