Morning Fitness and Evening Nutrition
Thursday, March 06, 2014
I have two habits I want to focus on this week…and forever!
1. Exercising in the morning. My work schedule is becoming somewhat more flexible, so I am able to come in just a little bit later, guaranteeing time for a workout. I’ve experienced two major benefits of morning exercise: I feel jazzed. I mean, I feel so good! I know I’m an amazing person for doing such a great thing for myself when I workout. The second benefit: It’s done. Any other fitness for the day is bonus after getting the planned fitness done in the morning. So far, so good. I did a 30 minute Denise Austin workout this morning.
2. Eating less in the evening. I do a decent job planning and executing my food plan until I get home and put my feet up. I need to start tackling some issues I’ve ignored in the past, like limiting TV time and not eating in front of the TV. That’s always been a comfortable habit I’ve been unwilling to break. It’s time for a serious heart to heart with self. Just how much do I want this? What am I willing to do?
I am willing to keep moving, even though the daily workouts make my body tired and sore. It's a good kind of sore that reminds me I'm ALIVE! I'm willing to think about food differently, especially in the evening. Food is not a pastime. It's fuel. I know this.
