So why the radical change you ask? What happened to shift the planets into alignment? Well, I have been having trouble getting my workouts in during the evenings. My husband is working 12 hour shifts in a very physical job so when he gets home at 6:30, he is TIRED! Sometimes he falls asleep in the chair....I don't blame him one bit! So I have dinner to get ready and entertaining a 3 year old who hasn't seen us all day and is clingy! And I feel guilty not spending time with her when she wants it and working out instead. So I usually try to go get on the treadmill after she goes to bed, but some nights I have just lost any motivation to workout by that point. And yes, to those that think I am crazy, sometimes working out in the evening makes it harder for me to go to sleep.
So since I have been having trouble getting my workouts in this week, I decided to try a morning workout. So I set the clock about 20 minutes earlier and did 15 minutes on the elliptical - which by the way is becoming my new best workout friend (well isn't THAT an oxymoron!) since I can burn a lot more calories on it faster than on the treadmill. I still like the treadmill best overall, but who doesn't love to get a better workout in less time....uh yeah, me for sure! The less time I have to spend working out and the more calories I burn doing it (while not hating it) the better!
So here's to continued improvement on my journey to being healthier....who'd-a-thunkit?? Not me, that's for sure! I'd better go buy a lottery ticket today! Happy Friday y'all!!! :o)
