“You are Crazy to Work Out so Early!”
“Wow you must be dedicated ?”
“You have a vacation coming up?”
The lines I get from people when they hear I go to the gym at 3.45 am. Some ask why? The only answer I have is … it’s part of my routine for fitness. Then people comment they could never get up that early. My response to that is, yes you can! If you are dedicated enough!
I am awoken out of a dead sleep in my comfy warm bed, by my blaring alarm and my wrist watch screaming at me at 3.15 a.m. I groggily sit up, and lay back down after hitting snooze. I don’t go back to sleep. I mentally prepare for my workout.
What goals am I going to inch towards today? What flavor protein shake will I have? What leggings and top? As I think, 9 minutes go by and my alarm goes off again. I am up!
I take a quick pee and brush my teeth. I get into my workout clothes and shoes. I head to the kitchen and shake up my protein/creatine and I take my multivitamin that has caffeine! I kiss my sleeping husband goodbye and I get to the gym around 345 , map of my workout in hand, and I go in with determination to kick ass!
I have conditioned myself to do this!
I have made this my habit. My goal is to be fit and to get stronger and leaner. Everyday I get one step closer! My morning routine gets me to my goals! If you make excuses why you CAN’T go to the gym or workout , then you are taking the easy way out! Sometimes it takes sacrifice, hard work, planning and even missing out on social or personal stuff.
The fact is you CAN get a workout in, it’s a matter of balance and scheduling yourself for a time that works for you! 3,45 am works best for me!
