So I have these Groupons to 30 days of Boot Camp staring me in the face. I bought them in January for me and my fiance, thinking it would be perfect to get us back into a morning workout routine again. Knowing that waking up early is challenging enough to begin with, I decided not to start in the dead of winter - the dark, cold mornings make it even more impossible to get out of bed, and our one month memberships would certainly go to waste had I started a month or two ago.

I am now debating starting tomorrow, but have just felt utterly exhausted lately and fear that my 30 days will lapse without much result. If I don't start tomorrow, then I'll want to wait until after May 22nd to try again (planned vacation falls into that last week, which would make my Groupon less valuable!)

But I am less than excited about starting tomorrow. It's still cold and rainy in the Northeast, and work has been crippling as usual. I have 0.0 energy. It's about time for me to go to bed and I have to make a decision... try it tomorrow (and likely fail and feel guilty about it) or commit to waiting another month for more sunshine and motivation to sink in (and feel guilty because I really should be starting now)?

    Thanks! But I didn't go yesterday. UGH getting up at the crack of dawn is so difficult in itself, but is also compounded by the fact that I have to make my way to work at some point. I've made it easier on myself by waking up early to do things I enjoy - catching up on e-mail, perusing Spark, etc, so that its not so unbearable - I would be sad to have that time taken away right now. At least there should be daylight in a month when I give it another shot. Also, when I talked to the trainer to reschedule my start day, he mentioned that they aren't operating on weekends right now because they are getting ready to move locations in two weeks, so I do feel a little bit better about waiting.

    Okay, if you try, you have already NOT failed, because you got up, went, and did it.

    Morning exercise is NOT for the faint of heart. I LOVE working out in the morning, but have 0.0 energy lately as well and just can't make myself do it. Simply conquering the "getting out of bed" part counts as a WIN to me.

    Do it now or you will NEVER do it. I have to tell myself that almost every day when it comes to working out. If I say, "Oh, I'll do it after I get home an unwind," it's like 11:30pm and all I've done is screw around on Facebook.

    SO! Tomorrow, get up! Go do it! Give it your best! And remember YOU CAN NOT FAIL IF YOU PUT IN THE EFFORT. If you can't go as fast, do all the reps, it doesn't matter, it's your first time, and it's a morning workout, you're guaranteed to be kinda uncoordinated. Trainers are used to it being EVERYONE'S first time at some point.

    GO GO! To bed now! And report back tomorrow, soldier!
