AM Workouts

Okay. So I’m trying to evaluate my life and my weight loss goals and here is the deal. I go to work from 9-5 and I don’t get home until 5:30pm or a little after that. I would like to do cardio workouts at least an hour every day. But by the time I drive to the gym 10 miles away, drive home, take a shower, and cook dinner it is looking to be around 9:30-10pm by the time I get to eat! No bueno. So I’m thinking I should try working out every morning.

If I wake up at 6:30 and workout for an hour, I’ll be done by 7:30am. Shower until 7:45ish. Eat breakfast around 8am. That gives me enough time to leave to go to work at 8:30am. Now here lies the problem. WAKING UP AT 6:30AM. I’m not gonna lie. I sleep late and wake up late. I have SUCH a hard time waking up at 8am to get ready for work. How in the bloody hell am I going to get up at 6:30am! I just don’t see this happening.

Anyone out there have experience with doing early AM workouts? How do you like it? Was it hard for you to do at first?

  1. The best advice is just do it! Not the most original but still! The way you feel all day after a morning work out makes up for it! I’m a night owl too but the only time i can fit in a work out is in the mornings before my daughter wakes up! So good luck!

  2. I much prefer the morning workouts, when I can get it done. It’s not so much the waking up early, it’s the getting out of the house part I have trouble with. Also, have you considered going straight to the gym after work and/or for the cardio to just to run in your neighborhood? (first time finding blog, so I’m not sure where you live)
