Morning vs. Evening Exercise

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

For me, early morning exercise will always trump evening exercise. Yesterday I spent the whole day saying I was going to go exercise; but instead, life took over, husband was an hour late coming home from daughter's band practice and by then, I had gotten all the other kids to bed and I was DONE for the day. See what I mean? This morning, after sleeping all night, I got out there and got it done, and I still have the whole day ahead of me, yet that one important thing is crossed off my to-do list. I love it. :) And I get that it doesn't work that way for everyone. That's just how it works for me.

The weather outside this morning is amazing. I had a good time out there and even saw one of my friends this morning, running too! When I got almost to my halfway point, I found a dime, and when I was coming back I found a penny. I'd love to be able to add about 6 zeros to them and then cash them in, LOL!

I thought of a really awesome long-term goal on my outing today. I will graduate in May 2014, and I would love to get my picture taken at graduation, 50 lbs. lighter, with one of my favorite professors, Dr. Dale Brown. His KNR 182 class was a huge turning point for me, and I wish everyone could just go and take that one class with him. I work so hard every day because I remember so much of what I learned in his class. WHY our bodies need carbs/lipids/proteins, WHAT happens to our bodies during hypertension, heart disease, or diabetes, HOW our cells burn ATP energy at different heart rates, and more. But anyway, May 2014 sounds way far off, but really, it's only 18 months from now. Yikes. Seriously. So, do you think I can do it?!

    When I find money/coins, I consider it a reminder that God is watching over me. It sounds like someone is REALLY keeping a good watch over you and like you've set a good/attainable goal. Keep up the great work!

    I have known u 3 yrs and everything u have set your mind to, you do! I think your graduating in 18 months and I also think if u set your mind to losing 50 lbs, you will do that too! I am the same way with exercise. I gotta schedule it into my day. If I push it off. It will just keep getting pushed off til I go to bed feeling guilty. Only way I exercise at night is if I meet someone lol

    I know you can do it! You have a great attitude and that's half the battle. I also love to exercise in the morning. Then nothing else gets in the way. Enjoy your day! emoticon
