Wow, it's Friday already????

I tell you, I have such respect for teachers after doing this for a while. They are the hardest working people on the planet. Time flies by, literally, I can not believe how fast the day goes by when it's broken into 45 minute chunks. Then planning for lessons everyday. really wears you out.

Anyway, the week fell apart as far as exercise goes. I'm not sure how to solve this problem. I really, really want to workout. Getting up in the morning is good but hard. Running after school is really tough. I'm tired and my feet generally hurt from being on them most of the day. I guess I'm just going to have to suck it up and do it. There really is no way around it.

Some catalogs came in the mail today, time to start thinking of Christmas gifts. Hubby got some NFL and golf catalogs and Old Navy has some great gifts for her, well, actually me.

Anyway, I'm doing a little mindless TV watching tonight so I'm off....

So what's going on here?

Busy, busy, busy..... I've been working and trying to get all my various commitments met. It's been exhausting. However, the morning workouts seem to be going well. I got up Monday and Tuesday and did my strength training in the mornings. The evening ones haven't been going so well though. Monday I had a parent conference after school and only got in a 30 minute elliptical. Tuesday I was going to run but I forgot a top. Hmmm....was that a subconscious act?? Speaking of which, I have to put a top in my bag before I forget. I am running tomorrow. I was going to run this morning but I had to be somewhere fairly early and I slept longer then I thought I would. I was going to run tonight but I was working and it got dark quickly, plus it's been raining most of the day. So unless I had some outdoor lighting and an umbrella, a run ain't happening tonight. I know these are all excuses. I'm very aware of that and I'm aware of why I'm making them. …

Watch your step!!! Epiphanies everywhere!!!

Morning vs. Evening Workouts

I've been struggling with my workouts for awhile now. I like to workout in the mornings and I'm getting back into running/biking, etc but I found it almost impossible to do these things in the mornings. This is something I have struggled with for a long time. I like doing workout videos in the morning but really want to run. So it's been a conundrum and a constant battle for me.

Last night as I was cruising around reading blogs, I found one lamenting about how they can't do workout videos in the morning. How they need to quiet of strength training or running. BAM!!! It hit me. That's my problem. I like workout videos in the morning because I DON'T WANT TO THINK. Running or biking requires far too much thought and planning in the early am. On the days when I do run or bike in the am it's usually only after I have been up for at least an hour. I've had coffee, had a little something to eat, did some mindless surfing o…
