I have always been a morning exerciser. Truth be told, I actually like waking up early before anyone else is up, just having some alone time is worth so much to me! But, I just don’t feel like exercising first thing in the A.M. anymore. I would rather take that time to just relax. Also, I just haven’t been putting my all into the workouts, because I’m not fully awake yet. I don’t want to exercise at night because by the time I do dinner, bathe 3 kids, read and they all go to bed; *I* want to go to bed myself, but that’s also because I wake up at 4:15am.
I have 2 kids who are in school all day and the toddler naps for about 3 hours every afternoon. I have been using that as more quiet time, but that’s a lot of idle time of me not doing anything if I have that in the morning and again in the afternoon. So, I’m thinking I can still wake up early (maybe not AS early though if I’m not going to be working out) and have the alone time then, but then use the afternoon nap time as my exercise time.
Well now that I wrote it all down, I know what to do 🙂 So, let’s get down to business!
Breakfast: I woke up this morning with a less than pleasant wake up call of cramps and cravings for all things unhealthy. Thankfully we got a bit of ice last night and the schools are on a 2 hour delay so going out for breakfast wasn’t even an option. Instead I had eggs in toast
With a steaming mug of peppermint herbal tea (you can see my new boyfriend Mr. Blackberry in the back, he’s dreamy)
Now it’s off to get the kiddies to school and come home to chill with a heating pad 🙂 See you this afternoon!
