I am not an AM Person

Friday, August 07, 2009

I have been getting up for the past two weeks to work out in the morning. I ride the bike three days a week and get in 2-3 days of strength training, around 30-45 minutes. I do not get up in the morning on the weekends to work out, but that may be an option in the future. I am up by 0515, at the gym around 0530, hit the bike hard for 50 minutes, go home, shower, wash hair, and get to work by 0800 or 0830. I am ready to pass out by lunchtime LOL! I do not LIKE this. By the time I get home I take a short nap or cook. I'm usually in the bed by 9 or 10pm.

Usually, right after the workout, I feel pretty good. It's the getting there and about 3 hours afterward that I am sooooo tired. So no, I don't get the endorphin rush after working out. What gave me a rush? Sleeping in today :) I will do some lower body weight training tonight before going out with friends. I hope to feel better about working out in the AM.

    I really want to try working out in the AM... I work from 9-5 and have been going to the gym from 530 till 630, getting home at about 7... I barely have time to cook when I get home, so I end up eating processed junk...
    So, I have decided I want to start working out in the AM so I can get home earlier...

    I hope you start to feel the rush!
    If it doesn't work for you, maybe the morning's just not your time!

    I wish I had your determination and dedication. I love exercising in the morning...when I can get up! It's hard to roll out of my comfortable bed in the morning but since I work a second job at night, mornings are really the only time I have to exercise.

    Good for you! Keep in up!
