I know, I know...wahhh, wahhh, whine, whine! But that's the way I feel! LOL!
I had an appointment to get my hair cut and colored (first time in 8 months!) this afternoon. I generally work out after work. For those of you who don't color, it's generally not a good idea to wash your hair right after you get it done. For those of you who don't work out, your hair generally needs washed after a work out! LOL!! Anyway...to make sure I still got in my workout AND got my hair done, I decided to work out this morning.
For me, that means getting up at 4:20 in order to have time to workout and make it to work on time. As I laid down to sleep, I visualized myself getting up, getting dressed and getting to the gym. Amazingly, it worked! Or something did! LOL!! I actually got up and went to the gym at oh-dark-thirty! I got on the elliptical, set my normal settings, my normal time, my normal machine. When I finished, I had burned more than 100 calories less than what the machine normally says AND gone almost a full mile less!
I will admit, the elliptical did seem harder to get moving today than normal. And now I know why. They reset the rubber bands in the elliptical every night, so they're wound tighter in the morning. By the time I get there in the evening, the rubber bands have stretched back out! LOL! Either that, or I am not a morning person....Nahhh, can't be that! LOL!
