I’ll just have to accept it and come to terms with the awful truth:

I, Lenni, am becoming a morning workout person.

Whew! It felt good to get that off my chest. 🙂

All too often, I get home from work to cook dinner and do a bunch of parenting stuff and find I am too tired to workout or if I do, there’s no time to do anything else (like read the demon-child a story). So this morning was the first morning in my attempt to get up at 6am to workout.

I’ve gotten as far as the waking up part. Getting out of the bed will have to wait till tomorrow. XD

I figure if I get up early, work out for 30-45 minutes, shower and get ready for work, I still have enough time to get to work. If I end up having time to do another workout in the evening, then awesomesauce It’s really no trouble to boot up the Wiifit and hop on for 30 minutes if I’ve already done 45 earlier that day.

I will also be attempting the Zumba for the Wii. Yeah, you may laugh. But I have lost weight with DDR in the past so dancing seems to work for me. No matter how stupid I look. XD

Why this is relevant to a writing blog is the “get up early” advice. I can’t tell you how many books, blogs, and articles I’ve read about writers with dayjobs, kids, etc who say they get up at 5am and write for an hour before the rest of the family wakes up. I’ve heard this in a bunch of weight loss success stories, too. (pardon me while I feel a TON of shame for the sheer amount of weight loss stories I’ve read… *sigh*) In the past I have looked upon such habits as bullshit but I’m giving it a shot.

Because doing it at 6am is better than not doing it at all.
