Mornings. I really, really, really hate them. I am so far from a morning person it’s not even funny. Seriously, don’t ask me to function before 10am other than breathe and maybe answer a simple yes or no question. I’m just not with it until 10.
It really is amazing once we get the double digits on the clock I’m golden, I can do differential calculus in my head if need be, okay not really but I can do complicated math and solve complex problems without much effort, but ask me at 9:58 and I’m like, “Are you speaking English?” So yeah, morning person I am not.
However, today I needed to be in the office earlier than usual, which meant I needed to get up earlier than usual and oh yeah I’m committed to this whole working out and reaching/completing my goals this week, which means I had to get up even earlier. Ughhhhhh!!! Let’s just say I’m not quite a happy camper. As its quarter to 9 and I’m up and somewhat functioning.
Okay, I’ll be honest as exhausted as I was when I got up earlier than normal I put on my big girl pants and worked out. And, well the workout throughly exhausted me, but in a completely different way. And, well now it’s quarter to 9 and I’m functioning enough to actually write this post, of course later I may read over and say oh yeah not nearly awake enough to be posting on the blog, but anyway I do feel a bit more awake than if I had just gotten up and not worked out.
Must be those endorphins I hear talked about so much. Waking me up. Of course I may be ready for a nap by noon but it will just be an early to bed type of night.
The husband will be at a concert tonight and I’ll have the house to myself so, curling up and reading some of my book and then falling asleep watching a movie at 8pm will be perfectly acceptable.
So yeah, I hate mornings, but I’ve definitely have found over time that working out first thing is the best for me. That way I have no excuses to get in the way and prevent me from doing the workout. Of course when you have to go to work it means getting up that much earlier which I’m not a fan of. Luckily, I have a job where I can set my own schedule for the most part, and make the morning wake up call a bit more reasonable.
How about you do you find that there is a time that works best for you to get your daily exercise in? What motivates you to keep with it?
