This week, I decided I was going to join the early risers and attempt to consistently get up and exercise before work. I have to be out the door at 7:00am. So for me, that means crawling out of my cozy bed at 4:40am….yawn…
The idea of getting my workout in before the day even truly starts has always sounded so prefect. (I won’t have to squeeze it in after the kids go to bed. There’s no chance of an emergency glass of wine with dinner ruining my evening workout plans. Basically, nothing can sneak up on me and force me to cancel a workout that is scheduled for 4:40 in the morning!) But in reality, I normally manage to do it once, and then on Day 2 I wonder who in the world actually does this?! Because I’m way too tired for such nonsense!
But so far, this week is different. I have stuck to my plan and I feel like a total
bad ass rock star every time I fall hop out of bed. My mind set has changed, and I’m looking at every wake up as a bit of a battle. It’s me versus me. And if you know me at all, you know I like to win. And somehow, staying in bed when I promised myself I’d get up, is NOT winning.
What I want most is to accomplish the goals I set for myself. So….let’s hope that 4:40 am keeps feeling this good!
