Need another reason not to sleep through a morning workout? Get a buddy! One of the best things I've done on my journey to a healthier lifestyle was to join up with a SparkBuddy in my neighborhood to walk with twice a week. Not only to we motivate and encourage each other, we ENTERTAIN each other.
It's *almost* easy when you've got a like-minded Sparker at your side to get through a morning workout. We're so distracted by sharing life experiences and goals with each other, we hardly notice the sweat and/or minor aches and pains. I actually look forward now to getting up and getting busy!
Because life gets busy and I have missed out work-outs in the past, I have completed an extra work-out on a day of rest. Now I have this "back-up" work-out, and since haven't missed a day. I also try to complete my exercises or walking before early evening, since that is often the time I feel most tired and am most at risk for skipping my work-out. I know that my body is "reved up" due to the kick-start of working out and I am getting the extra benefit of my metabolism burning more calories.
