What can I improve upon... oh boy!

Thursday, March 07, 2013

I missed blogginf yesterday, so I will respond to 2 challenge questions today.

What can you improve upon? Concerning my walking/exercising...

I can improve upon my consistency. It gets rough as the week goes on. Not to make excuses, but working two jobs makes things more challenging. I often think that I should take care of my exercise in the morning and have even attempted to set my alarm 45 minutes earlier. I AM SO NOT A MORNING PERSON!! I end up hitting snooze for 45 minutes.

I need to find a time that works for exercising whether I am working both jobs or not!! Morning could work. I could also utlize my emplyers gym that is right next door to my office, even if it is 15 minutes 2x each day. Perhaps I can try the treadmill today at lunch (I could get 2 miles in ... hmmm)!!

Do you need some motivation or advice? Ask for it!
It always helps to receive motivation!! It is why I log into SP each day!!

    Mornings are best for me, but find I'm more energetic closer to bedtime. Why is that???? Quite often, I'm rushing to get exercise in later in the day and then have trouble sleeping because I'm energized and ready to go.

    I can so relate to so much of your blog! I'm definitely not a morning person but I am going to try to take a very early morning low impact aerobics class starting in June once a week to start. Very early is 6:00 a.m.

    The one difference between us is that you work 2 jobs and i am currently unemployed so I have very few excuses not to get my fitness in each day but this week I am definitely slacking.

    I have the same struggle with finding a consistent time to exercise. When I do it in the morning I love that and how it starts off my day - but making it a regular habit is so complicated because of other demands on my time that can't be avoided. So I end up fitting in exercise wherever I can in my day. Wishing you much luck! emoticon

    I HATE getting up early. That said, I find that if I don't do it, I don't get my workout in. Oh, I will take a walk later in the day, or I will do a few ST exercises before I get dressed, but the gym... Has to be first thing or I don't go. So 3 days a week, I try to get to bed by 10 so that alarm can send me off to my workout. I hate it, but once I am done I am SO relieved!

    I think trying to do your work out during your lunch would be beneficial, there's no reason to force yourself in the morning. Plus if you try to you may start to hate exercise if you start sacrificing sleep for it! Keep up the good work! emoticon emoticon
