This is the second time this week I’ve written a post and Ecto, my blogging software, has gone and deleted it. Thanks, Ecto.
Just when you’d think I exhausted every single stupid excuse for why I didn’t work out this morning, I have a new one!
I plugged my phone into a different outlet last night (why, I don’t know either), and it turns out that it was an outlet controlled by a light switch, which, of course I’d turned off and my phone died.
I’d reserved a bike for a 6:30 spin class this morning, and I woke up naturally at 6:20 and realized there was no way I could get changed and make it there in 10 minutes…and so I plugged my phone into a different outlet and rolled back over, defeated. I ended up sleeping until almost 8, getting a full nine hours of sleep.
I don’t know if it was too much sleep (that’s not really a thing, is it?), an allergy-induced fog, or a bit of both, but today dragged on and on and on. A trip to a client event to take some photos at mid-day was a nice diversion to wake back up.
Around 4, I realized I needed to come up with a workout plan, so I decided I’d work to get everything done and get out of the office by 7:10 to get to 30/60/90. Per usual, the class was awesome, but I couldn’t help but watch two girls in the front who were in kick-ass shape. I want to be like them when I grow up. How can I be like them? Consistency.
By the time I got home, walked Bailey and was ready to start making something to eat (fajitas), it was 9:30. If that’s not reason enough for me to try to become one of those morning exercisers, I don’t know what it is.
That, and the endorphins evaporate overnight. I was in such a good mood when I ran before work last week, and I definitely don’t feel that same way when I work out at night.
So, I’m not going to ask how you make yourself wake up to work out in the morning, because that one’s beating a dead horse, but what workouts do you struggle to do consistently? For me, it’s obviously anything that’s not running.
