I just wanted to talk really quick about morning workouts. I love morning workouts. It's done, it's out of the way, and it's a great way to start your day but like everyone else, I love my bed. It's not easy getting out of bed in the morning, especially since I started this 5:30am gym trip (I used to workout around 7 or 8 in my living room whenever my daughter woke up but I have been wanting to use the elliptical in the gym so I have to get up early before my BF leaves for work.)
So I know some of you are like 5:30 though???!! How the hell does she do that???
I'll tell you how.
1st of all, before I go to bed at night I prepare myself to not make excuses in the morning:
|Sneaks, sports bra, socks, and shirt. I go to sleep in my workout pants.|
5:00 - One alarm goes off. I go back to sleep.
5:30 - My alarm goes off. I take a deep breath and sit right up.
5:30-5:35 - The angel and devil on my shoulders begin to battle each other. The devil fights hard to make me lay back down. I listen to this argument considering both sides.
5:35 - The angel and devil are still at it but I am busy putting on my sports bra and sneakers amidst the negotiations and rationalizations from the devil. She tries to tell me that I can just drink lots of water today and stay on plan and go back to sleep. Even tries to convince me I might go later tonight.
5:40 - I flick that B word off my shoulder and head to the gym. :)
6:40 - I walk back in my apartment feeling fantastic and ready to conquer my day. Kick rocks with no socks, little devil. ;)
|What the shirt says.|
Here's to an awesome, healthy, fit, on plan, day!!
