This morning I went to the gym…at 8:00 am. In my opinion, that is too early to be going to the gym on a Saturday morning (especially after working a full week and being busy all but one night), but I did it. As I lugged myself out of bed I reminded myself that I was going to be glad I did it later.
I had to go early because my husband needed to go to the school for a while today and we had plans all afternoon and early evening. So, it was either go early for some good cardio or not go at all today.
As I was on the elliptical, being amazed that other people go out at that hour just to exercise, I remembered that Diane at Fit to the Finish gets up to walk even earlier on Saturdays as well. Whew. I don’t normally sleep in really late, but I enjoy sleeping in until around 8:30 or so on Saturdays and having my coffee at a leisurely pace.
Of course, when I was done I was glad I went. :o) I’m still glad I went. And if I had to do it again, I would.
Because I know I’d be glad I did it when it was all over with. 🙂
Awesome, Leah! Good for you!
Diane is amazing and a great example. I'm trying to get up early and work out. It's so hard for me, but I find I'm always glad I did it (when I actually do it 😛 ) If I wait like I did Saturday, it doesn't get done.
Congrats! There is a real sense of accomplishment when you do something you NEED to do but don't really WANT to do, isn't there? Great job!
I left you a little award on my blog under yestedays post 🙂
I think it's wonderful that you got up and went early. Getting up early isn't for everyone, but as time has gone by I really savor the early morning quiet and the feeling of getting a lot done before everyone else is even out of bed.
