Nike has it right.
I am starting to feel sluggish. I stepped on the scale recently to confirm a slight increase in weight. It could be “water weight” but it’s still additional pounds I do not want.
I read Theodora’s account of becoming someone who works out in the morning and decided I really didn’t have a great excuse not to join her. So last night I set my alarm 30 minutes earlier and said “let me just do it.”
The alarm went off this morning and I would be lying if I told you I jumped out of bed like a bunny rabbit and went to work out. I pressed snooze and then crawled back into bed. Thing is in my head I was thinking “you don’t feel tired, so what excuse are you going to use today?” Yes sometimes I talk to myself in 3rd person.
Anyhoo … I could not come up with any real reason to stop me from working out. I even bargained with myself by offering up 30 Day Shred as a “quick” 20 minutes and I didn’t have to follow the advance workout; I could play beginner. LOL
I was out of bed and ready to work out within 10 minutes of the alarm going off. I was mighty impressed with myself.
At the end of it I was a hot sweaty mess but so glad that the workout monkey was off my back.
I am feeling a little sore ALREADY!?!
The true test will be tomorrow morning. Hopefully this starts a brand new routine. Especially since winter is coming and I have a very hard time getting up when it’s dark outside.
