There’s a reason I work out in the morning. OK, there are a few reasons, I work out in the mornings:
- I am a morning person. While I may not want to get up right away at the sound of the alarm and occasionally hit the snooze, once I get out of bed, it only takes brushing my teeth to get moving and going.
- My day is almost always more productive when it’s started with cardio. Take this morning, for example, I worked out as soon as getting up, showered, had breakfast, checked my email, and have started this post all before 8 am (keep in mind, I won’t get to finish this post until after I get to work, but knowing I’ve already started will be a big help).
- I have more energy and feel better throughout the day. Coffee helps with the energy too but a good workout gives me a fabulous boost.
- Life almost always gets in the way when I get home from work so night workouts just get pushed to the side and eventually not done because I get tired and need to head to bed.
I headed home and decided just to wait til I got off work last night to work out and TJ said he’d work out with me.
None of that happened. When I got home, we needed to make a quick run to the grocery store, make the kids dinner, get them bathed and ready for bed. We also had a Skype date with my niece who started kindergarten yesterday to find out how her first day of school went. That went a little longer than expected and by the time I got the kids into bed, TJ was passed out on the couch and I was ready for bed.
So, a work out was a no go, making yesterday an unintended rest day. I did, however, get my plank and bridge in for the day though.
