As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve decided to try to get up early (5am) and go workout in the morning.
Yesterday I didn’t wake up in time because I couldn’t fall asleep the night before. I did go workout after school, which was great.
Last night I made sure I was in bed, lights out, by 11pm (early for me), and I was able to finally get myself out of bed at 5:30am. I headed to the gym, worked out HARD on the elliptical machine for 30 minutes (6 APs), and made it home in time to make coffee, shower, get dressed, eat breakfast, and make it out the door by 7:35. Not too shabby.
Tomorrow is my “off” day, because I’m heading to my 7am WW meeting for the first time.
The plan for Thursday and Friday is to avoid the snooze button and really get myself out of bed at 5am so I can have a bit more time when I get home from the gym. I like to take my time getting ready in the morning, so the extra half and hour really adds a nice cushion for me.
I’m really proud of myself, because I’m not a fan of early mornings, so this was quite a feat.
