Workout Scheduling Epiphany

I think I turned a corner in understanding I need to commit to working out in the morning and not at night.  I went to bed early last night and forced myself to get up and go exercise early (5:30 AM) in the morning, so I'd be done by the time Phoebe had to get on the bus (6:40 AM).  I really didn't want to do it, but now at the end of the workday, I see why people workout first thin in the morning.  It's like paying yourself first.  I'm feeling so free tonight.  There is no feeling of guilt around the things I need to get done to take care of my family over what I need to get done to take care of my self and body.  Let's see if that new found inspiration helps me get out of bed again tomorrow morning.  The funny thing about this morning was that I still needed to get to work early for an early morning meeting, but I really needed to wash my hair.  I did not have time to wash my hair.  Instead, I put my hair for the day together involving lots of dry shampoo, teasing the front of my hair, two bobby pins and a hair tie.  I'd like to think my hair had a Blake Lively kind of feel to it.

I think tonight I'll prep more to be ready for work:  get lunches packed, bags ready, vitamins out, etc. as I will really need to have time to wash my hair tomorrow.  I can't get away with that again.  But who am I kidding.  There will probably not be as much prep for tomorrow happening tonight other than baking cupcakes for their birthday party at preschool tomorrow.

P.S. I had a really catching name to this blog post when I wrote in my journal during red lights on the way home today.  However, I now do not have the foggiest idea what that great title was.  If I remember later, I will rename it!

P.P.S.  Just realized we haven't wrapped the boys presents yet.  Guess we will be up late tonight getting that done.  However, the shuttle birthday cake Tom made for tomorrow night looks fantastic!!!


I'm NOT a morning person so even getting to a 9 am gym class is MAJOR for me.

But you're right - I feel super smug and virtuous afterwards :)

That's a beautiful picture. Was that at sunrise? I'm slowly learning to become a morning person where workout is involved! I try to do a walk 3-4 times a week before work so I can get home in good time in the evenings ... Sometimes I wonder how I used to do boot camp 3 days a week starting at 5:15am!!!!

Hope the boys have a wonderful birthday xxx
Ooo I want a cupcake!
