My alter ego wakes up at 5:00 a.m.
I wasn't sure if my morning workout schedule would stick. Sleeping in gym clothes isn't super comfortable after all. But somehow, I have managed to make it part of my routine. Last Friday, I even managed to wake up at 4:00 a.m. and be on the elliptical machine by 4:15. Who me? I never thought I could do that but now I never want to go back. Working out in the morning is easy. The hardest part is getting out of bed but as soon as I step out the front door (and run to my car because I'm scared of the boogie man hiding in the bushes) and drive to the gym, I'm awake and ready to go. I complete my hour of cardio and drive home to get ready for the day. The best part? Walking in the door at 5:00 or later and knowing that I have the entire evening to do what I please. Cook dinner, watch tv, play with the kitty, talk to my husband, grocery shop. No rushing to the gym and everything that comes with it. Right now, I work out Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Maybe a Wednesday or Friday if I feel like getting up at 4:00. Who am I kidding. No one ever FEELS like getting up that early but I have to say, I'm addicted to the morning workout!
