Tuesday morning I had an appointment at 10am–which made it difficult to drive all the way to work, work for 1 hour, then leave for the appointment and drive all the way back to the other side of town, only to turn around again and go back to work. I decided to just take a few extra hours in the morning off.
I slept in a little bit, then I got to go to the gym. I had a quick snack of plain Greek yogurt with strawberries and then headed out. I was bit groggy this morning and not feeling too motivated.
I’m rarely a morning workout person–especially during the week. But I really do like how I feel when I get my workout done in the morning. I feel energetic and alert, I don’t need coffee to wake up, and it’s also nice being able to free up my evenings for fun things.
The gym was practically empty when I arrived. I had a lovely run on the treadmill (despite my sore hamstrings from gardening).

I opened the can thinking it was regular black beans and then realized…oops it was refried beans. Oh well, they were yummy and went well with breakfast. 1 scrambled egg was enough with the beans and fixin’s.
I’m happy with how my day started! I wish I could get my tired butt out of bed early to run before work. That would be nice…Cycling to work is as close as I will ever get to regularly exercising before work though. It’s just not in my nature.
QUESTION: What’s the hardest part about motivating yourself to get to the gym?
