I’m so proud of us this morning! Anthony and I hit the gym at 6 am! I am so not a morning person…but the hardest part is just crawling out of a warm, cozy bed…once I’m up, I’m usually so happy…and it feels so good to already have my workout in first thing!
I’m in a hurry to get to work, so I wanted something quick for breakfast…a combo of Kashi Honey Sunshine and Special K with Chocolate really hit the spot! I also added in a spoonful of Naturally More almond butter to add a little protein and healthy fat….along with a yummy cafe latte with hazelnut coffee – delish!
Off and on through the years, I’ve tried to get up early for workouts….sometimes I do it for quite a while…but, I usually come back to the excuse, “I’m just not a morning person!”….but, while I really do like working out later in the day….right now, I’m finding that once my work day is done, there isn’t near enough time to workout, have dinner, spend time with Anthony, have some downtime, relax, laundry, dishes…etc. So, one of my new goals is to really establish a good morning workout routine…which for me, also involves forcing myself to go to bed earlier…since I really am a night owl and naturally seem to have the most energy late at night.
Do you have tips/tricks that help you get up early in the mornings?
Do you prefer to workout early in the day or late?
I’m heading to work! Have a great Friday!
