I will admit, I am a time optimist and I am also late to a lot of things. So coming into this day I knew yesterday I would have a lot on my plate today so I decided I would get in to Lifetime early to have my Cardio over and done with. I also love my bed in the morning, so when the alarm went off the desire to stay in bed was beyond tempting and maybe, just maybe I could get my workout in later on today. Then the better sense of me took over and I dragged myself to the gym and I was there by 6.30.
When I get into the locker room still half a sleep and I meet this woman who is coming down from the workout floor and I tell her “Lucky! I wish I was you, already done”. She smiles at me and goes “I got woke up at 4.45 just so I could come before my I day gets busy”.
I look at those people who have the commitment no matter what. They truly inspire me because if it means they have to wake up 2 hours early to workout, they do it and there are no excuses!
Still sleepy I went upstairs I thought I would kick it off on the Stairmaster, taking it slow in the beginning. Yeah right, whom am I kidding, there is nothing easy with the Stairmaster after 20 minutes I was drenched in sweat. The last 30 minutes I spent on an Elliptical I never tried before and I don’t know if it was all the arm workout we put in this week but it was crazy hard and it really got my heart pumping. Now I have sent the kids to school and I am shooting out the door to start my busy day!
