I love to sleep. And I love to sleep in. I hate waking up earlier than I have to.
But I know that if I'm going to stick to a workout schedule, I'm going to have to do it in the AM. I work 8a-4:30p every weekday, it's SO easy when I get home to do anything but workout - I either have night class, have to run errands, go to the grocery store, make a nice dinner or I'm just too lazy or tired to go to the gym. I've tried to make a routine of going post-work and it's just not happening. But, I have to workout - because it's good for me and I'm wasting a lot of money on a gym membership if I don't! So, I have to suck it up and wake-up earlier. So my new goal is to get out of bed at 5am everyday, make it to the gym by 5:30, leave by 6:30, get home, shower, etc and get to work by 8am. In order for this to work, I have to get to bed by 10pm or earlier every night. Otherwise there is no way I'll get out of bed at 5am.
I was successful at this today and yesterday. And I've noticed a group of women that were at the gym both days, and they have great bodies. They look a little older than me, very trim with some nicely sculpted arms. I'd like arms like that. So if I want that, I have to have a "Just do it!" mentality about going to the gym in the AM. My reward will be nice arms and also the feeling of being able to come home from work and do whatever I want. Until night class starts again in 2 weeks!
