I drink some ice cold coke when I first wake up. That gets me going as I prefer sugar and caffeine. Some people have some odd routines when they wake up such as Ric Flair who wakes up and goes woo but it does that alot. That sounds like a good way to start your day though to me. Go woo and than drink the coke.

I normally roll out of bed and go straight to the bathroom and then starting getting ready for the day. Now once all that is done, if I still have a few minutes before I have run and go to one of my classes I set down on the computer and check emails, facebook, and the weather. Plus normally the headlines on Yahoo. And then once I'm out of class thats when I go get my morning cup of coffee. Its not a really exciting morning routine but it takes me about an hour before I'm fully awake.

lol, alot of times it can take me 2 hours to get awake but luckily a good iced coke does the trick fast. i think switching gears on my body that fast to just suddenly get awake is not healthy but it does the job to wake me up.

On a week day i hit the snooze button. Then after struggling to get out of bed a go to the bathroom. Then i get dressed and so on so forth. On a weekend i sleep as late as i can then i check my cell to make sure no one text or called me. Then I just go with the flow.

Hey elmiko! When I was working that was the first thing that I did! I would get to work and pop open a can of diet coke or diet pepsi and everyone would look at me like I was nuts! They would be drinking their coffee and I would be popping the top off my soda! And I didn't care because I don't like to drink coffee! I would be eating my bagel and cream cheese or whatever I was having for breakfast and my diet coke or pepsi for caffeine!

I go to the potty, wash my hands, change and the go for an hour long walk. I've never known anybody to drink coke in the morning. Be sure to brush your teeth right afterward because you don't want your pearly whites to rot.

The first thing I do when I wake up is to get dressed, and then I turn on the computer that is in the computer room. After that, I go to the washroom and I help my husband up. While he is dressing (he had a stroke) I will read the Bible that is on my computer. Then I help my husband finish dressing, and then I get breakfast ready. That sounds about this. Not into the sugar routine except for a little chocolate candy now and again.

I lay there for a few minutes, get a drink of water and some energy drink/coffee. Sometimes I go workout and other times I just get some breakfast and a shower.

The first thing i do when wake up every morning is check my cellphone, i just want to know whether there is a message or not. Next, i will sit for a while (about 10-15 minutes) in my bed, trying to get rid of my sleepy. It is so hard for me,lol. And then i will go off my bed, drink a full glass of mineral water. It makes me fresh.
