This morning at 6:00AM, I awoke with dread. My plan was to get my lazy butt out of my nice warm bed and put in a grueling workout, finish with an AMAZING green smoothie, grab my coffee, and go to work.
That was my plan. It was a good plan. A flawed plan. Let’s just say it didn’t go all go as planned.
First off – 6:00AM, though not as early as some rise, is earlier than I’m used to. But I did it. I got dressed in the dark, stumbled around the bathroom looking for the toothpaste, headed down to my basement gym and…. nothing. No energy at all. No willpower to move. I gave it a go. I did.
By the time I was back upstairs, I was dejected. I wanted to do this the right way, I wanted to get things done, but it just wasn’t meant to be. Am I simply not a morning workout person? Time to hit Google up for some answers.
People on the internet by and large seem to be in the same boat as me. Nobody wants to get up early. But surprise surprise, there are some things that they may be doing that I’m not. I’ve got a list of things I’m going to try next time (Thursday). So I will return to the gym, and my mind is set to crush these goals. My body craves the movement, and moreover, I know that exercise is the missing component in my regimen right now.
Any tips? I’d love to hear your thoughts on how to get better at waking up early to exercise.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
