I'm not a morning person at all. Never have been. I wake up with the smallest amount of time to spare to get ready in the morning. I don't do make up in the morning (more so because I have absolutely no idea how to do make up) and 9 times out of 10, I don't even brush my hair. It's swooped up in a messy bun every day. I'm always running around frantic because I'm chronically late. So why would I ever think I'd be capable of waking up an hour earlier (usually meaning 5am) to get a jog in?
So what does that translate to? Homework's been completed. Dinner's been served. Kiddos are in bed. I'm hitting the elliptical between 8:30-9:30 at night. Not a bad way to end one's day except it makes me WIDE AWAKE. My body is ready to keep plugging along (and is woken up by my post workout shower) which leaves me up until midnight or so. Not a good combination for a 5:15am alarm. It's driving me crazy because I'm not getting enough sleep.
So how do you do it? How do people force themselves out of bed at that ungodly time of day? I really need some help/suggestions because I'm not sure how many more nights I can take only getting 5 hours of sleep because I'm so amp'd up post workout.
But on a brighter note, I now understand everyone's obsession with workout gear. I've changed out of my scrubs into running clothes all week and it's really been quite surprising. Not only am I motivated to work out (don't want to waste the outfit), I'm actually comfortable! I love my new Old Navy Bubble Tank and I might actually go out in yoga pants without feeling too ridiculous (I never go out in public in work out clothes. It's some crazy thing with me)
