Morning? Ugh!

Friday, December 27, 2013

I can't seem to get moving in the mornings. Cooper doesn't seem to mind, so I am trying not to stress over it, but it feels like I am wasting half the day. I have never been a morning person, but this is getting ridiculous. I still walk the dog 3 times a day, and exercise without him as well, but I don't get much else accomplished during the day. I end up doing my cooking and cleaning at night. Once I get into a pattern it is difficult to break. I feel like I need some kind of jolt to get me (and Cooper) moving earlier in the morning.

I got on my rower today for the first time in a long while. I have been using the elliptical more often, but my brother and I were discussing the next paddling season, and it sank in that I need to use the rower more, so I am in decent condition for the start of kayaking season. I am going to miss most of July due to travel plans, but there is still May and June before we leave. (Maybe even some of April?)

    Winter is dark and cold and slow. You'll get there!

    It is hard to want to get moving in the cold, dark dreary mornings. All the more reason to break out of the rut and get the energy fired up!
Changing up your fitness keeps it fresh! Rowing is great exercise -enjoy! I just wish I could do something, anything at all! Dangerous windchill weather and slippery sidewalks is preventing me from even going out!

    On winter days, I wan to stay inside and stay warm. I have to force myself to get the dogs in their harnesses and get out walking. Always feel better when I do, but the next day I have to kick start myself again.

    When my hips were not in such bad shape I liked the rower.
