Early Morning Workouts.... Why I Love and Hate You

For the past 2 mornings, I've rolled over and hit snooze, when my alarm has gone off for my early morning workout. TWO mornings in a row. WTF? This is the first time I've done this. And it needs to stop, now! There are so many great things about working out before work. But there are also so many sucky things, it's become a love/hate relationship with me.

Hate: The sound of my alarm when it goes off at 6am

Love: Getting my workout over 1st thing in the morning

Hate: Waking up when it's still pitch dark out

Love: I'm amazed at how fast I wake up when I start going

Hate: It's sooooooooooooooo cold when I first get up and put my workout clothes on

Love: The quietness of my house at that time of day

Hate: Having to be so damned quiet because I'm afraid of waking J up. His bedroom is right across from the steps to the basement door and being the early bird that he is, it takes next to nothing to wake him up

Love: The feeling after my workout is done. I feel strong and accomplished

Hate: How unbelievably hungry I am ALL day long

Love: The feeling of my legs shaking, as I walk up the HUGE staircase to get to my desk at work

Hate: How much coffee I need once I "cool" down around 10am

Love: That when I get home from work, I can spend the time playing with my kids and not thinking about what time I can get them to go to sleep so I can squeeze a workout in

Hate: That I have to go to bed pretty early, so that I can get up again the next day and have the energy to workout

  1. I HATE how cold it is when you first get up and have to change right away. That right there, is reason enough for me to stay in bed :)
