Morning Workout Pick Me Up

Wake Up 1The only time available for me to workout is in the morning before I go to work. Why, because middle of the day is definitely a no go and end of the night will be an epic fail! I also workout in the morning because I like to hit it and quit it and get it out of the way. 

So with that said, just because I work out in the morning doesn’t mean it’s easy for me to just pop up and get going. There are a few things that I do that help me actually get ready for my workout. Remember I told you I hate working out but it’s a necessary evil? Well yeah it takes some coaching to say the least. Tee Hee.

The first thing I do is get enough sleep the night before – Adequate sleep is important. If you don’t get adequate sleep you absolutely will not get up! Adequate sleep depends on you. Some people need their full 7-8 hours but then again some only require 4-6. So you decide how much you need but whatever you decide make sure you aren’t depriving yourself.

After you hit your alarm, get up and brush your teeth – OMG brushing your teeth will wake you up all the way up! Mintyness curbs your appetite and it also wakes you up. Let’s not forget the motion and action of brushing your teeth. The movement is rapid and doesn’t make you feel sluggish.

Get fully dressed – Get fully dressed in your workout gear! Workout shirt, workout pants/shorts, socks, sneakers all that!  My sneakers are right next to my bed, I hit them with my feet when I get up.  Whether you are working out at home or driving to the gym, putting those clothes full on says that you are telling yourself you mean business and you are in it to finish it. While at home I find that working out in your pajamas or partially dressed (in underwear) gives you too much room to get your butt back in the bed. Lol. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt!

So, those were just a few helpful tips to get your ready for your morning workout.  I hope they helped.    Now don’t read this post and then hit your snooze button again because you’re too tired.  Lets get ready and get moving.
