Yay!!! I did it!! I MADE myself get up and I went to work out at 5 am this morning. It went really well, Im a little sleepy now, but I guess I'll get used to it. Im hungry too, so I bet I have to up my breakfast if I keep doing this (i must keep doing this!)

So....we'll see if I can get up tomorrow! :carrot::carrot:

Congrats! Years ago when I started work at 7am (and was lucky enough to have facilities at work) I'd get up at 5am, throw on some workout clothing and head to work. After my workout I'd have a shower and start my work day with pretty much wet hair (but I was inside so it didn't matter). I'm not sure I have enough fortitude to do that now. Although I get up at 7:30 to go walking, and I don't have to get up that early...

Good luck tomorrow. I always found it harder towards the end of the week. But... so worth it to be done with your workouts before work started! :)

yah mug!! i'm so proud of you!! I love it when I can go to the gym before work cause it's not as busy and I have my pick of machine vs going after work like most do.

Woo-hoo! Good job Mug! Seriously, the sleepiness will wear off. You have to change your bedtime Im sure. The earlier, the easier it is in the morning and yes, you assume correct in having to eat more, but your body will still be burning calories after your workout (especially if your incorporating weights into your routine).

KUDOS!!! Keep it up, you will start to feel better in about a week. The first week is hard.

Congrats!!! I love working out in the mornings but the hardest part is starting.

:congrat: Mug! I love working out in the wee hours of the morning, I simply feel great all day long. It gets easier..I had to readjust my bed time and now it's a breeze. Good luck tomorrow! :)

YAY for u!

Wow!!! That's great!!! You mean business when you get up THAT early to go!!! I want to do that so I can get in some exercise before my kids wake up.

This summer for over a month starting in June, my son has swim team several streets over here at our neighborhood pool. It starts at 7am! to 7:45am. So I'm thinking we already have to get up earlier than we did when school was in at that point, why not get up a little earlier and walk there! I need it bad and my son will probably like it anyway. Will be good for both of us to walk there and back. It will help me get used to walking more, like I did when I first started losing. And it's great that I won't have a choice which days to go! I have to go 5 days a week! LOL!!

Congrats on being determined enough to change your life for this. We all have to change alot to succeed but we can do just that. What we change decides the outcome of our journeys. :woops:

Keep up the good work!!! :cp: :cp: :cp:

Hugs, Selina :hug:

I knew you could do it!!! Keep at it and it will definitely get easier and you'll feel so good!!! Yay for you.

Excellent, Mug. Keep it up. It will give you such a good feeling. No matter what happens during the rest of your way, you have already gotten your workout in. You can say to yourself: I've done what I could. The day's not even over but you have already taken care of yourself & watched out for your health & made it a priority.

Good job! It feels good to be hungry after earning it.

I used to get up early when I only had one kid. I felt good all day. I keep thinking about getting up early and walking with my toddler. Maybe you'll inspire me to get up tomorrow and actually do it.:D

05-19-2009, 02:01 PM
Rock on! That is awesome and really something to be proud of! You CAN do it!!!

Good for you! I love working out in the morning, but just haven't been able to get myself back into the habit of doing it. Hoping you will inspire me! :)

I am impressed! You are doing so well. Keep up the good work!

You're so strong! Guess what? I can't wake up that early to go work out. Ugh. I just CAN'T do it. I'm so proud of you, how did you feel throughout the day? Tired/dragging, energetic/active? When I used to run in the morning when I was trying to reach my goal the rest of my day was incredible, I felt so good. I hope it's the same for you!

05-19-2009, 05:31 PM
Congratulations!!! How often have I vowed to go in the morning, and how often have I actually been? Twice?

05-19-2009, 05:34 PM
well done! I try fit in my workouts either by running 6km to work along river Thames in London or running home after work. I find this works as i actually need to get to my destinations!
