Trying something different

Usually, Thursdays are the worst day of the week for me.  I’m tired and it makes for a difficult, long day.  This week, I decided that, instead of resting on Thursday nights, I’m going to rest on Wednesday nights and see if that helps.  So far, so good.

Also, as soon as tax season is over, I am losing my morning walking partner.  Currently, she works at the CPA firm down the hall from my office, and beginning April 23rd, she has a new job.  She had a family commitment this week, so hasn’t been here.  I spent the first three mornings this week catching up on various work-related projects, but, today, I decided to do something different to see if I liked it.  I got to the fitness center at 6:00, when it opened, and I did my cardio training for 45 minutes before I had to get ready for work. 

I had hesitated because I didn’t know how busy it would be, but I have to get to work so much earlier than most people that I was the first person there, the first person done, the first person at the showers and blow dryers.  In fact, there was no one else in the dressing room when I got dressed for work.  I liked it!!!  I will be back there at 6:00 tomorrow morning, and when April 23rd comes around, getting in 45 minutes for a good cardio workout will start my day.  Then on the three afternoons a week I go there, I can concentrate on core and strenghth training.

I’ve wanted to see how I can up my workouts and this may be the way of my future.  I’ve always had more energy in the morning than after work, so getting in my cardio at this point of the day just makes sense to me.  And the upside?  I had in over 6,000 steps by 7:00 this morning.  Oh, yeah…  gonna be no problem getting in my 10,000 steps a day with this plan.

I hope you have a lovely, stress-free and productive day.

    Proud of you-I am a slug when it comes to getting up and going exercising in the a.m.

    You are SO good about sticking with the exercise! Hoorah for you!

    You may find that the morning cardio gives you more energy during the day.
