Joining in the blog hop.

     Taking part in the blog hop from Fat girl to thin. Todays topic - do you prefer to work out in the morning or at night.

     I prefer to work out in the morning/early afternoon ( depending on how late I get to sleep that day!) then I do at night. If I work out in the morning I feel energized and like I have the rest of my day free to do anything I like and I also feel like I get more done around the house then if I'm waiting till night I don't have the motivation to do as much during the day.

     Today, for example, I had planned to go to the gym this morning but just didn't. I haven't been to the gym for a few days and now I feel back into a rut. I think ok I'll go tonight, and then I end up not going. It's such a pain that the daycare, for some reason, is closed from 1-5. So I only have the option of going early in the morning or late afternoon/evening. I just CANNOT wait for this weather to get better so I can enjoy some of my summer outside and get back to our morning walks. GO AWAY RAIN. GO GO GO. Until then, I'm stuck saying I'm going to go to the gym... then not going... then the guilt sets in. I've also been feeling really okay with not going because I'm staying in my calories and I'm wondering if it's nessesary to go seven days a week and if it's okay not to go to the gym every day with out feeling guilty. Why do I feel the pressure to go every day. I think it's ok I deserve ONE day off a week from working out... then one turns to two... three... more. What do you think? Do YOU like working out during the day or at night? Do you feel pressure to have to work out every day or a certain amount of time before the guilt sets in?


  1. I'd love to work out in the morning, but the morning is my best time for writing as well, and writing always wins. Hence I'm stuck working out after work, mostly, when I get home between 4.30 and 6.00 P.M. (depending on the other chores). But I've noticed how it helps increase my energy levels later in the day, so maybe it's not all that bad. (Plus, usually I am really starving when I get home, and I used to curl up on the sofa with a book and something crunchy - this doesn't happen anymore, and by the time I'm done working out and cooling down, it's already time to prepare dinner... one more snack avoided!)

  2. I understand that.. I skipped this morning, went tonight and that was a huge mistake. I brought the baby home she was cranky, i was trying to cook dinner oh my gosh it was a disaster. Mornings only for me.
