Okay.. maybe a little.
But honestly for the first time- It wasn’t that bad.
(Please remind me of this when in the depths of winter and I never want to leave my bed. ever.)
So it was a successful first day at the gym in the am. oh and how i THOUGHT I could get there at 5:45- no we (my parents and I…so cute…love living at home haha…) must LEAVE the house at 5:20. oh. so the alarm is set at good old 5:03 and 5:08…(cause I don’t like to wake up on zero’s or fives), which was a little daunting to say the least.
Although I think being sort of anxious for the day made me wake up quite easily..I already laid out my clothes so I was ready and didn’t have to put too much thought into it. Although at 5:30 at the gym no one will care if you match at the gym…right?
All laid out and ready to go…
Once I got moving out the door I was fine. At the gym I was pretty excited that barely anyone was in it..that means no fighting the macho men to use the lifting equipment. That makes me very happy!
I did a Biceps and back workout from Live Fit week 4 and then got on the elliptical for 10 mins and stairmill for about 5…I would have liked to get more cardio in, but I took a little longer lifting than I thought.
What was seriously awesome about exercising in the AM is the fact that by the time I got home from the gym, I realize that if I stayed in bed I wouldn’t even be up by this time..i actually had time to take a shower, read some blogs that I’ve been neglecting and missed, and get ready for the day. Oh and I actually had time to drink my coffee at home and NOT in a travel mug.
Sayonara travel mug! Wait, JK..I still need you at times.
All the extra time in the morning was quite enjoyable! I love to drink coffee and eat breakfast and watch the news in the morning. When I don’t I feel like I have not idea what’s going on in the world.
The downfall of early morning workouts, you ask?
I basically hit a crash mode sometime between 4-5pm during Field Hockey practice. Hard. I hope this is something that will adjust as I get used to it- but man was it bad then..ugh.
We will see how it all goes again today 🙂
- Have you ever transferred into morning workouts?
- Do you hit a “crash wall” during the day like me?
