But I’m Not A Morning Person!

  • Posted on February 26, 2013 at 5:25 am


The only way I’m going to be comfortable with my body is if I tone things up. And the only way I’m going to do that is by being consistent with my workouts, something I haven’t been in, well, years.  My slacking off at the gym wasn’t really my fault (who am I kidding?). I let myself believe that the full time job I took after my divorce left me little or no time to exercise. Truth is, I got lazy. And now I’m paying the price. If I had only maintained…

But I didn’t.

So now I have to do something. By April. I’ll tell you one thing—putting this out here on my blog, for anyone to see, is mortifying … I mean motivating. I can’t very well say I’m going to do something and then not do it. Well, I can, but …

My plan is to get my workouts in before work, and since I don’t do well on treadmills (I get dizzy), I need to be in an exercise class with an instructor telling me what to do and when to stop doing it. I need loud music and people around me doing what I’m doing (and letting me know I’m not the only one out of breath or having trouble with that final rep).

Since I work from 9 to 6 and sometimes later every day, I’ll have to get up at 4:30 a.m. to get to a 5:30 or 6:00 class. Do you think that’s enough time (first I have to take the dogs out, drink coffee, eat a banana and brush my teeth)?

Even though I’m not a morning person, I’m determined to have a biker babe body (my version of one anyway) before I head out to California. I’m sharing my quest for a body that weighs less than it does at this moment, a body without triceps that flap when you swat them, a body that looks good in a short skirt without Spanx underneath (or any underwear for that matter—OMG, I didn’t just say that!), in order to hold myself accountable.

I start tomorrow at 4:30 a.m.  Who’s with me?
