Good morning and happy marvelous Monday. My alarm went off at 6:15 this morning and after 30 minutes; I managed to make it over to the gym. I completed a light workout but at least I made it. Afterwards, I enjoyed a hot bowl of oats.
On the mornings that I make it to the gym, I always do a lot of thinking. This morning was no different and I chose to concentrate on the fact that waking up in the morning kind of sucks. Why is it so difficult for some of us while others have no problem and in fact enjoy the morning? So, I tried to break down what I dislike most about the morning. The thing is, after my workouts, I really love being up early with some quiet time. What I don’t love is the initial wake up period.
For years, I would always have to eat something the second I woke up. Now that I aim for AM workouts, I have to push my eating back to after my workout. I do actually enjoy my food more this way but the initial shock of waking up, brushing my teeth, and washing my face with an empty belly is anything but pleasant. I think that in time, I’ll start to get used to this and it will become easier. Here’s hoping!
Here’s a little weekend recap in pictures:
What a cookie filled weekend! Thank goodness there were many workouts included in the weekend.
Question of the day: Do you eat breakfast right when you wake up or do you wait a little while/after working out?
