I was reading one of those cute little motivational picture post things on facebook last night and thought about how completly true it was. I hear a lot of people say "I'm too tired to workout." You know what? Me too, sometimes. There are days I feel like I'd rather nap. Instead, I push myself to workout. I get done and.... I have more energy! I think that by working out, I have more energy in my daily life too. Your body needs that movement! It keeps you going.
Working out also makes me tired. Last night, after two hours of working out, I was ready to crash. I slept well though! I'm tired this afternoon too! I got up this morning and did part of my workout. I learned that in order to do a long workout, I'm going to have to get up around 5:30. The dogs are adament about getting up when I do, so i's not just a matter of me getting ready to workout. I have to let them out, get their food and water ready, then I have to get ready for a workout, and then let them back in. I like to give them a little time outside, so sometimes this entire process can take 20 minutes, usually around 15. This puts me that much later starting out. Uh, not to mention I like to hit snooze at least once before I get up.
This morning the alarm went off at 5:45. I got out of bed at 6:00. I didn't start my workout until around 6:20. I'm pretty sure that the alarm is going to have to start going off at 5:30 so I can get up by 5:45 and be ready to roll by 6; 6:05 at the latest. I'm really going to need to start going to bed earlier than normal. I don't watch much on TV as it is, and with my workouts split between morning and evening, I won't be working out as late... SOOOO I guess it's not that big of a deal. I guess.
Anyway. Energy. I had lots of it this morning. It allowed me to exercise my mouth a little more... And ohhh was I animated with my chatting. I was talking with my hands, and fast, by 10 this morning! That's rare for me. I am usually kinda quiet in the morning hours.
I was pretty tired out this afternoon but did the second half of my workout because well... I had to! As usual it felt amazing!! I'm pretty tired now though. I'm planning on a bath to soothe these sore muscles an the some relaxation. Sounds like a good evening to me!
I'm posting a lot about working out lately. I think I need some new topics. Hmmm... Any ideas or requests?
I'm ready to start this long weekend!! I will, of course, start with a workout tomorrow morning. Later in the day I'm off I see my plastic surgeon for my six month check up. Six months! Already?! I'm excited to see what he has to say and see what the plan will be!
Have a fantastic weekend!
