Working out keeps me in check and I love it, and mean it. I love to feel my heart racing and my body working. Without it, well let’s just say I would not be the most fun woman to be around. My stress levels would be boiling over and my usual positive attitude would falter. Sweating releases toxins from my body and cleanses me. Working out rejuvenates me, replenishing my energy, happiness, and confidence.
Leaving college and getting into a normal day-to-day schedule allowed me to solidify my official “workout time.” In college I would fit in a workout between classes, studying, or work with wavering consistency. Now, I can train my body and mind to be prepared for a certain time each day. With a more steady schedule, I have transformed myself into a morning workout person. Thank you, thank you, no need for applause… I found that if I worked out in the mornings, there would be no chance/excuse for it not to happen. The morning is the ONLY time that you can call your own and you must embrace it. I normally awaken, drink a full glass of water and then work out at my house. I have not officially sworn off the gym yet, but it could be in the works. It’s enjoyable to wake up and work out without having to drive anywhere or risk the threat of running into another gym-goer that somehow all ready looks perfectly acceptable.
Below is a workout that I created that lasts 30 minutes that I do in the mornings, twice through if I’m feeling crazy. It combines strength and cardio which will properly energize me throughout the day.
