I’m Craving a Workout

Every so often, I crave a really, really good workout.. wallballs and squatting with at least 90. I’m so ready for one of those workouts today, but unfortunately, I know that by the time 5:00 rolls around, I am going to be exhausted. When classes start back up next week, I can only imagine that I’ll be that much more exhausted. So, I’ve come to the conclusion that afternoon/night workouts are just not for me. I’m going to have to make the effort to workout in the mornings, despite my attachment to my sleeping beauty bed. If only I could crave workouts at 5:00 in the morning instead of 1:30 in the afternoon, how much easier life would be. I think that eventually, I will, but I will have have to train my body and mind to make those changes. Since this is my year of changes, this is one that I will definitely have to make for myself. What could possibly motivate me to wake up at 5:00 in the morning? Let’s see… what are some things I can do with my free time in the afternoon?

  • I don’t want to think about this, since school hasn’t started back up just yet, but I can study! yay me.
  • I can spend time with my niece and nephew ❤
  • I can take my dogs for long walks on the beach or take them to the dog park
  • I can make healthier meals
  • I can tutor and make a little extra income
  • I can spend some time with God
  • I can read books for fun
  • I can go shopping
  • I can go to the beach
  • I can go to happy hour

The nice thing about working out in the morning is that you don’t have to worry about working out for the rest of the day. It’s not lingering in the back of your mind and the rest of the day is yours to fill as you wish.

But, working out in the evening has it’s perks too. First of all, you may be tired before you start working out, but you get a huge boost of energy once you start. All the good classes at the gym are usually in the afternoon. I have yet to discover classes that start so early in the morning, especially any that I really enjoy. So, working out in the afternoons always provided me with good and motivating company.

But, honestly, evening workouts, I’ve realized, take up a huge portion of my day. If I leave my job at 5, get to the gym  by 6, and stay till around 7:30, that’s pretty late. Then, it’s back to the daily grind the next morning. I developed the philosophy of live to work rather than work to live. So, by making these changes this year, I hope to have more eventful evenings and higher happy hour attendance rates. I hope that’s enough to motivate me to wake up at 5am!

  1. Hey I’m Brittney! I just started a wordpress and came across your blog. I love how you’ve set up specific goals for yourself. It motivates me to try to do something like that… especially the fitness part, which I’ve neglected since being in college :(… Mornings would probably work best for me too if I could wake up so early, but we’ll see how 2016 goes. Walking the beach, shopping, and going to happy hour… sounds like the life of a single girl and loving it! I wish more people would start a discussion on your blog about your posts!

    1. Thanks doll 🙂 That makes me so happy to hear!!! Happy new year to you!! We can motivate each other with the workouts. I use to be a super duper gym rat. I love working out and miss it so much, but I don’t have the same energy I use to before I started college! Please feel free to stop by any time and keep in touch!! ❤ xoxo
