5am follow up!

Monday, August 15, 2011

So I tried...made the effort, but I realized 5am insanity workouts aren't for me! Thank you for all of your kind words and way to go to all of you early morning workout'ers!! I truly had great intentions, got up at 5, got changed, drank some water and ate an orange...but my knees were so stiff I could barely move around and jump so I know I wouldn't get the same effects as a later workout. I stopped the video after not feeling any more nimble after the warm up...however, I did like the extra 45 minutes I had to myself...watched the news, drank some coffee, ate my breakfast instead of scarfing it down! I really felt great the rest of the day, it was a nice start to the day! 75% of me thinks I should wake up that early just do not be so rushed...we'll see what the grumpy tired 25% thinks tomorrow...

So not to disappoint, I ended up working out after work instead of at 730 tonight. We were just having tacos for dinner so it didn't take a lot of prep time. That was a great time to workout! Energy from the day, and now I have the rest of the evening to relax!

Hope you all got your workouts in too!!

    You have to find what works for you. I can't workout at night because I'm too tired after work but I totally understand not wanting to get up at 5 am to exercise.

    Maybe Insanity is not the best choice for 5am. Maybe something like yoga would get you going for the day and do the cardio at night. I enjoy that extra time too when I don't feel so rushed. There really is no magic time to exercise. We just have to find what works best for us. Good luck with whatever schedule you follow but just do it! You'll be glad you did!
