Getting that morning workout…or not…

How to get started on morning workouts….even just a jog around the vineyard block? 
For the life of me I can’t seem to ever get up early enough to get a morning workout in. Needless to say…I’ve never been a morning person…except for when Saturday morning cartoons were on when I was a little kid.
Hell, I’d like to go to the gym even if I could.  It’s on my way to work.  And they do have showers of course.
But I just can never get up early enough, or if I do I stay in a half asleep state until like, 7:30, which is when I usually get up and get ready for the day. 
A solution must be found.

The challenge of waking up Early

So for the last several days i’ve been getting myself in the habit of waking up early, around 6am. Which since the time change, thats been going really well.
So last night i decided i was finally in the habit enough to go for a jog in the early morning, which is what i’ve been working myself up to doing.
Well, this morning…..slept RIGHT THRU my early alarm! I still woke up with some time, but not enough time to get my running gear on and go out for a decent jog. I’m not letting it get me down though. Tomorrow is another day and i will just try my best to not sleep thru my alarm, and get up and going.
At least instead of my jog i did get 15 minutes of core exercises and a bit of yoga in. Just to stretch and work some muscles. I do exercises throughout my day at work too, usually pushups, chair squats, and going for a walk around the warehouse.
I also have a workout tonight with my trainer. Last week was a bit of a dud week after Tuesday. Just too busy and schedules werent compatible to get a second workout in with my trainer. Not to mention on Saturday i lost just all motivation and did absolutely nothing. I’m grateful though that my boyfriend kept me eating healthier food, despite my major junk food cravings. Gosh i love him 🙂 ❤
Anyways, i think this’ll be it for now. I know i havent made a big update post in a while…so i guess consider this part 1? Part 2 i’ll try to post later tonight after my workout.

Workout today

Short post for now.  My laptop is dying and i still need to eat breakfast (triple berry whole grain oatmeal…YUM!).

I have a workout with my PT after work tonight…lets see how hard i can push myself today.  I really want to get thru he entire hour today with a bit more ease than I did on Saturday (reminder to self – have protein shake before I leave work and don’t drink a ton of water during my workout).
My PT did tell me he is having me do pushups today. Girl pushups at least…but still pushups. I am wondering what else he has in store for me today too.

Anyways…gotta get ready for the day now. Ttyl!
