Since my bad weigh-in last week…I vowed to kick ass on the fitness front this weekend.
I did OK….certainly not fantastic. I did some Pilates and yoga Saturday and got a good cardio workout on Sunday (thank you Jillian Michaels!). But, I found myself saying “I’m too bussssy”…”I’m too tiiiired”. Wah, wah, wah! God, am I always this much of a WHINER?! (please don’t respond…I know the answer!).
So, working out at night isn’t going well for me – I’m tired when I get home from work , and HUNGRY. So, I end up eating dinner around 7pm…then trying to exercise around 9pm. I mean, I don’t want a DIE of a cramp so I wait the mandatory hour. Wait, that’s drown huh? Well, same thing. 😉 If I do workout at night, I end up so wound-up I can’t fall asleep until 1am/2am. That does not bode well for productive working the next day.
Having *never* been a morning person (and I mean EVER)…I keep waffling between “it’s impossible to change” and “if you don’t start working out BEFORE work, you’re going to stay fat DAMMIT“. Do you guys think I could trick myself into being a morning person?
In order to workout pre-work I would need to be up at 5:45am. I know, I know, a bunch of you are up long before this…but trust me, that’s usually only a few hours after I go to BED!
So, I need your help morning peeps – how do I convert myself into a morning person? I wish it was as simple as “go to bed earlier”…but really, I could sleep until 9am or 10am every day – no matter how early I got to bed. Alternatively, if I go to bed too early (before 9pm), I end up waking up at 3am – WIDE AWAKE! GAH!
I need your tricks/mantras/prayers to help me get my fat ass out of bed, and exercising at least 3 week days (I’m striving for good, not perfection here people!). Weekends allot for more time for sleeping-in since there is no work.
Whatcha got? Hit me with your best suggestions, pretty please with sparkles on top!
