Workout time...

I have been working out in the morning for the past year and even though getting up at 5:30 to go to the gym is a nightmare in itself some mornings, I adjusted. Knowing that my workout was done left my mind at ease the rest of the day. Besides, research studies prove that resistance training in the morning increases metabolic rate for the rest of the day. Nothing better than burning more calories while sitting at your desk!

Well now that I've joined the 8-4:30 working ranks, I thought my AM workouts wouldn't change. Now that I'm in my third week at the J.O.B., I am already experimenting with my workout time. So instead of 6am, I went to the gym at 6 pm. Ugh. It was so crowded but I got in a great workout. The fear I had was that I wouldn't be able to get a good night's sleep. Wrong, I slept like a log.

Rather than get up at 5:30 and do my cardio this morning, I slept and justified another afternoon workout. That was this morning. Now that it's 4:45 pm, my legs feel like jello and I'm not in the mood to sweat. Oh I'm going but I think I'm going to stick with the early AM workouts. I'm more mentally alert throughout the day and it's done...my workout is in.

The moral of my story? Find a workout time that fits your schedule and go for it. Don't make excuses, just do it. Sometimes getting to the gym is the hardest part but once you change into workout clothes and get that body moving, it's on!

High intensity intervals? I don't have the mindset now but we'll see how I feel after a nice warm up.....
