Working Out isn't working out...

I was so good this time last year. And it lasted well into the Spring. I felt better than I have ever felt before. I had more energy and I looked great! And then summer hit. And we were busier than we've been in a long time! And most nights I just wanted to hang out, or go out. So working out got put on the back burner. And then eating good got put on the same back burner. And now I have chocolate bars in my desk and I'm lamenting this little paunch I'm putting back on! ACK!

So I'm making a commitment to myself to get back into the swing of things THIS WEEK! But I have a feeling that my standard work out time of right after Lucas is in bed might have to change. It was working out okay when I was in the mood. But there are too many excuses that I can come up with not to follow through with it.

So I am going to see if a first-thing-in-the-morning work out routine might have to make it's way into my life. Problem is, I am so not a morning person. In fact, I'm the exact opposite of that. I used to have to wake up at 4:30 so I could work the early shift at Intuit (6am to lunch was before most people were even at work! The cafeteria was still only serving breakfast). Can you believe it? Gosh, I lived it and can barely believe it! I figure if I can adjust my routine by just the slightest degree, I can wake up just before 7 (yikes!), workout, then be done before Lucas needs me. I'm hoping this helps my energy level throughout the day, and doesn't hurt it (I have a love-hate relationship with afternoon naps). This also means that I would have to be in bed earlier, which will be a huge adjustment.

Any tips or tricks from my more exercise-savvy friends out there? Any funny stories about being up early??

I will keep you apprised of my progress...whatever that might be!

This totally counts as a Friday DIY...a non-crafty one mind you. It's my Do-It-Yourself Exercise Regime Change...stop making fun of me...
