Yesterday was the first day back at school. I have morning classes on Mondays which is good because it forced me back to the books. However, when I got home I wasn’t feeling to study-ish. I could have slugged around the house pretending to work but instead I headed to the Second Cup by my gym.
This accomplished a few things.
1. forced me out of procrastination mode
2. used some of their internet because my online accounting lectures are sucking up my internet usage and I don’t want to go over my allotted amount
3. made sure I wasn’t going to skip my workout, I was already there when Brad got to the gym after work
I enjoyed a decaf and a banana for my pre-workout snack.
Now this morning we are very proud of ourselves for doing a morning workout. This is so far from our usual workout routine. And thankfully I had a partner in crime or I might not have been so committed. Here’s what our morning looked like:
I woke up BEFORE my alarm went off! Clearly I was excited.
Alarm goes off and I roll over to Brad.
Me: “are we actually doing this?”
Brad: “I don’t know are we?”
Me: “I don’t know do you want to?”
And then I got up.
Eat toast with peanut butter and a small coffee. Get dressed. Check emails, pack gym supplies.
RUN to the street car. Oops! Should a left a minute earlier.
Grab all our supplies – medicine ball, weights, yoga mat. Fill up water bottle.
6:15am – 6:45
Complete our workout – Nike Training Club app. Brad keeps making us do advanced … OY!!!!!
I jumped on the elliptical machine for 20 minutes. Brad headed to the shower.
Brad headed to work. I grabbed his shower supplies and headed home.
Home! Have protein shake, lots of water, and supplements.
YAAAAAAY!!!!! We did it. Now let’s see what the rest of my day will look like with this early morning accomplishment
Profess your love or hate for morning workouts.
