That run I talked about going on? Yeah. That didn’t happen. Today ended up being a lot busier than I anticipated and I kept pushing it back further and further. Until I finally just gave up. Whoops.
I feel like I’ve mentioned this a million times, but I have got to start working out in the morning. I’ve always wanted to start that habit, but I never really got it going. Now I really don’t have much of a choice, because Maddux’s “bedtime” is usually after 8 o’clock. By the time we get him settled and sleeping soundly, it’s pushing 9 PM. When I do work out that late, I know I’m not putting in any effort. And, honestly, it’s probably not safe to run on a treadmill or pick heavy stuff up when you’re basically a zombie. PS: I was looking for confused, tired facial expressions for this post when I came across this gem. I barely recognized him.
Okay, back to my point. Each time I’ve tried to shift my workout schedule to one that happens in the AM, it seems like it just doesn’t pan out. I’ll forget to set my alarm for an earlier time, Maddux will end up waking up extra early, or I’ll end up going to work a sweaty mess. None of those things help me do it consistently, you know? Is that just me making excuses? Probably.
I’m going to give it my best shot tomorrow morning. Let’s hope the following things go right: I actually wake up, Maddux actually stays asleep, and I actually have time to shower afterwards. I’d love to have my evenings back, so let’s all cross our fingers this goes well.
Oh, and I’m also kind of annoyed that our gym area is so close to M’s bedroom. I mean, what were we thinking? He’s usually in a pretty deep sleep at night when we work out, but the mornings are a lot more questionable in terms of sleep. It’s almost like I’m scared to make a single noise. I am in constant fear of waking him up. What a wuss, am I right?
Is this a huge problem to have? Obviously not. But, hey, I figure maybe some of y’all can relate. Anyway, this is me publicly stating that I’m going to try it out for a few days and see how it goes. I mean, what’s the best that could happen? 😉
