Wake Up, Work Out!

Here is a little morning motivation:

Try to get your workout done 1st thing in the morning. If you are still trying to find your workout groove, you may find that as the day goes on the more excuses you have for not exercising. You may be tired from work, class, or driving the kids around all day. By the time your busy day is over you have no energy left for YOU. So take some time first thing in the morning, make your first 45 minutes of the day about YOU. You have to keep your body healthy and strong so you can continue to be there for your family, friends, career, etc.

If you don't have time to hit the gym early in the morning then try a workout video or my favorite Exercise TV. Jillian Michaels has some great programs on exercise TV. Also, the weather is getting nicer, so trying going for a run or walk. All you have to do is get up, get your workout clothes, and get out the door. Just make happen :-)

How you do you stay motivated to get your daily exercise in?

I love working out in the morning! You can probably find an early morning group fitness class in your area. For example, I sometimes teach a 5:45 am BodyPump class on Fridays. It's a great way to start the day and gives you plenty of energy :).

Ugh I do not like working out in the morning. I do it because sometimes it's just to difficult to work out at night. Also it depends on the workout I am doing. Right now I am doing C25k and it's just so much easier to do it in the morning since it's so quite in my neighborhood.
