I have to drive her to school, as it would take her almost an hour to get there by public transit and she is not a morning person. The school keeps moving back the starting time each year though, and that affects what time I start, and consequently finish, work.
I used to get home with enough time to have a quick workout before starting in on
My once Rubinesque figure is becoming distinctly Santa-esque.
I was once told that if you were required to eat a live frog every day, the best approach was to swallow that amphibian first thing in the morning, or you would spend your whole day thinking about having to eat that live frog. On weekends I have always used the same philosophy toward exercising. After a few cups of java and a bit of internetzing, of course.
Now I am going to try this approach on the days that I work. The marital unit gets up before 5:00 anyway, and I am the lightest sleeper since the princess and her damned pea, so I keep drifting in and out of sleep until 6:00 anyway.
I am going to start getting up at 5:30, blast off a quick 25 minute run on the elliptical before I fully wake up - no weights - have a quick stretch, and that slimy frog will have been swallowed for the day. It sounds so simple, how can I fail?
I am telling you all this so that you can prod me periodically with a “hey, how’s that 5:30 workout coming along, lardass?” and I’ll either be shamed into continuing with the plan or I’ll simply stop blogging.
