I am really glad to say that I’ve managed to designate a couple of days of the week to push myself to do early morning workouts. It’s a great feeling to start your morning already with a boost of motivation and energy for the rest of your day. I’ve noticed that doing these simple morning exercises have helped me sleep better, eat more regularly and get into a better mood. Those endorphins were definitely working during some unfortunate morning delays while I was commuting to work.
On a different note, though this post is about days 9 & 10 of my fitness journey, I am doing my workouts regularly. It has been quite difficult to write these fitness journals and reflections right after my workout because I sometimes have forgotten about writing them or am rushing to an appointment/meeting. That being said, I will continue to try and write these fitness journals and reflections as much as I can I just wanted to let you guys and gals know that I have been doing my workouts a lot more regularly than a month ago.
That being said, it’s really true that a huge part of accomplishing our goals rest on our mental will. It’s easy to make excuses why we can’t get up early in the morning; it’s really dark out, it’s too cold, etc. Oddly, this is something that I’ve struggled with the past couple of months. There always seems to be work or another task that I have used as an excuse to do instead of actually doing my workouts. Now, who am I really putting in disadvantage when I do that? Myself.
We make time for the things we value; it’s time to make time to take care of ourselves.
