Yesterday the Hubs and I hit the gym at the ridiculous o’dark hundred hour of 5ish. So early. So dark. However, a saying my friends and I have is that you never regret having gone to work out, only not going. Even though my muscles ache (yay!) this morning and I definitely had to have extra coffee yesterday and I was positively dying for sleep at my meeting last night, not once did I regret getting up early and going to the gym.
For years I’ve was an early morning exerciser person, mainly because with little kids life just got in the way too often for anything else to work for me and it was one less thing to worry about in the day; however, when you get out of that routine……………….well, it’s definitely more challenging to get back into. A comfy bed, fall temperatures, a good sleep, all things incredibly difficult to drag oneself away from. This is where an accountability person comes in handy. Hubby is NOT an early morning exerciser, so we will just take this one early morning victory at a time and go from there.
Today, I’ll enjoy my sore abs, linger a little longer over my coffee, and enjoy the quiet. Tomorrow we do it again! Wish us perseverance and consistency, friends!! We’ll need it!
