  • Of course, this is exactly what I go through to get off course. Get it....lol! You really hit the nail on the head and articulated it so well. I will think of this when I struggle to stay or go.
  • This was EXACTLY what I needed to hear! Thank you, sir, awesome post!
  • I've always thought anything before 6am was a bit extreme, but have been managing to get up at 5.30am. Now anything before 5am sounds a bit extreme - and I'm not sure I could manage 4.30am! I have to balance up the need to get up in time to do stuff before work with the need to get enough sleep (especially if I finish work late the night before). But, I do what I can. And the lesson is good - preparation before bed is always helpful in the morning!

    Sounds just like my mornings, but I don't even have to go outside, just to the basement to my fully equipped, yet rough around the edges home gym. I make sure I set the alarm where I at least have to get out of bed to turn it off. That get's me working out probably 9 out of 10 times, and it feels great all day long afterward. I just need to remember how good it feels afterward as I am waffling.

    Thanks for the article.
  • Excellent article and it has landed home with me. Many thanks.

    Btw - I love 'Bon Courage'. Thanks for that, Lalizarde. Very, very apt.
  • Great article--short and sweet and straight to the heart of the matter.
  • Good luck is kind of a dumb wish. In France they say "Bon courage" - good courage, and in Japan, they say good effort. Maybe we should switch to one of those.
  • Great article that nails it!
  • It is nice to know that even a personal trainer struggles getting out of bed! I fight with myself everyday. Worst is when my husband is snoring right through the alarm! The best thing I do is make myself get out of bed at least for 5 min. I tell myself is I still don't want to go ok, but most of the time I figure I am already up might as well go!

    Exercise is actually bad for you. See "Why You Should Never Exercise" at Amazon.com.
  • I like this article!
  • I would really like to get into the habit of exercising early in the morning.
  • Thanks.. just what I needed. And I like the 90 year old plus category for the 5K. I hope I'm right in there too!
  • Good article. Sometimes I will say I'm not going today. But I will sit about five minutes and I'll say no let me go to the gym. For me I feel guilty if I don't go.
  • Thanks for the article! I enjoyed reading it for the second time.
