I’ve learned that I always need to work out early. The later the clock gets, the less motivated I am to start working out. I start getting into projects, or the kids want me to play with them. Or I get sucked into Facebook or Pinterest…
However, if I wake up, get Book Girl off to school, and immediately start my workout it goes much better. I may still be tired, I may still not “feel” like it, but if I push through and just start, before I know it I am done.
THEN I get to have my shower and a coffee. Except, if I’m really honest (and I told you I would be, remember?) I don’t always get my shower. That’s right. Some (read: most) days I just change out of my sweaty clothes into the semi-clean clothes that I’ve worn for days. There just isn’t time enough in the day for an every single day shower.
You may think I’m gross. That’s fine. Not being able to shower afterward was one of the biggest excuses I used to have for not being able to work out. No more. There is no excuse for being fat and out of shape. I deserve better. My kids deserve better. The Husband deserves better. And the better I look, the less he’ll care if I smell. Right?
