I slept in my gym clothes

Yes, that is correct. I slept in my gym clothes. I think if I was single, I would have also slept in my shoes but I'm sure my husband would mock the crap out of me if I did that. I decided that the only way that I will work out on Tuesdays and Thursdays is if I go in the mornings. I'm too tired at the end of the day, I get home past 5:30 and I just don't have it in me to go to a crowded gym. Not to mention it causes me to rush the rest of my evening. Dinner, spend time with husband and kitty, watch tv/dvr, etc. There isn't enough time before I go to bed at 9:15. So I set my alarm for 5:00, slept in my socks, sports bra, shirt and ponytail and prepared for the early morning wakeup call. Lucky for me, kitty wakes us up super early by scratching the side of the bed. GOOD MORNING OWNERS I'M READY FOR MY DAY. It was 4:40 and I just decided to go for it. Contacts in, workout pants on, walk downstairs, shoes on, grab keys, wallet and phone and I was on my way. I stepped on the elliptical at 4:55 and was done at 5:40. I got home at 5:45 and took a little cat nap until my alarm went off at 6:18. This won't be an everyday thing but wow! Can I tell you how awesome it feels to know that when I get home, I will have nothing to do. I don't need to rush out to the gym, rush through a workout knowing that I would rather be at home with my husband (and kitty), rush putting something together for dinner because I'm starving and it is almost too late to be eating dinner. What is your workout schedule? Morning? Evening? Lunch hour?

i really prefer to workout (run) in the mornings but i get up at 4:45 to get ready for work so i don't have much time to workout in the am. i look forward to the weekends so i can run in the mornings!

I read this and laughed so hard. I had to read it to my husband and he was laughing pretty hard. It's a good thing you are married cause shoes in the bed, yuck. HA HA
