Fitness Friday: Morning Workouts


I am not a morning person.  I like to sleep until right before I need to get up, shower and go to work.  I usually make my smoothies in the morning, and I drink them at work.

I have ambitions though.  I love my after work fitness routines, which is basically yoga classes or jogging with Josh, but I need to add strength training.  I don't want to give up my yoga classes or my runs, so I'm going to strive to be a morning exerciser.

This has been attempted many times over the years to no success.  Josh and Bodhi will get too cuddly, it will get too cold outside, or I will get too lazy.  I'm really going to put some effort into this, though, because I think it will help a lot.  If I'm going to relax a little about what I'm eating, I need to kick up my fitness routine.  Ultimately, I want to do this so I'll be strong and healthy, so that's a pretty good motivator.

So, I'm changing my ever changing workout plan again.  I will keep the yoga and running after work, and the hiking on the weekends, but I'm going to strive to get up 4 days a week and do strength training and cardio for 30 minutes.  Short workouts are way better for me in the morning, and I have a space in my home and plenty of equipment to do it.


So far, this week has been good and bad.  While I have been able to get up and work out, doing a double workout on Tuesday kind of wrecked me for Wednesday.  So, there's a give and take.  I will be pushing through!

This week's victory:

I ran a mile in 11 1/2 minutes!  That may not seem like a whole lot to some, but that's amazing for me.  Josh ran with me Tuesday, and we crushed it.

Workouts Achieved:

I got in a hot yoga class, a run and 2 strength training sessions.  I'm going to strive to be physically active this weekend, but as it's the final push before my exam on Monday, there's no telling what's going to happen.

This week's struggles:

The addition of strength training, probably coupled with my stress and anxiety over my test, pushed my appetite up this week, and I found myself at Whole Foods more than a couple days grabbing lunch.  I'll recap all the Monday, but I definitely let the added workouts fuel my food intake.  That's something to work on for next week.


Fitness is a practice, and it's always changing.  So, I will keep pushing for morning workouts in addition to my after work activities, and I will continue to eat healthfully!

  6. CROSSFIRE... A fun version of dodge ball. Two people are up on the trampoline while the rest of the team is on the ground around the trampoline. A soft ball is thrown at the people on the trampoline from the people on the ground. If they hit that person with the ball, they switch positions, and the person they hit then goes to the ground.
