Surrendering to morning exercise

Monday, September 20, 2010

I have had problems with energy and the regimen of thyroid medication is helping. I take B vitamin shots, but my body is weird and I don't react to them like most people. I only notice a benefit when I'm exhausted. So, while I'm trying to figure this out, I've realized that I have a better day when I exercise in the morning. I do well with afternoon workouts, and I try to move during my sedentary workday. The morning exercise seems to help get through the sluggish afternoon, not to mention making the morning more productive! So, morning exercise, even if it is 10 minutes, is being put into my medical regimen and my motivational regimen. There will come a time when 'downward facing dog' becomes a friend of mine too. It could happen!

    Good Morning Debi!! I've flirted with am exercise before but this energy struggle has been going on for more than 11 years! Now that I realize the morning workouts help throughout the day, I'm shifting how I think of it and making it medicinal rather that some other from of "should." I'm not always ready, but starting out slow, waking up happens. It changes that morning persona -- though I must admit, getting to bed and getting sleep is needed to become that "morning person." Since this is now my medicine, I guess getting to bed is part of the prescription!

    Good for you. I'm not a morning person. I lack early a.m. motivation. How did you make the change?
