Just doing it until your daily rhythm adjusts
Have a kid. Works like a charm.
Yeah I already saw smh
You can borrow my cat, he’s good at waking us up at 5.
Have one but he sleeps until 7
so close to being nice
My heart doesn’t even beat anymore when I work out it seems.
Struggle to get over 140bpm.
setting an alarm and getting up when it goes off.
Make a plan to meet someone at that time to work out. The shame of letting them down will motivate you.
Lol I used to drink water before bed so that by the time 5am rolled around I had to get up to pee anyway. But obv u have to plan it cause if u have to pee before 5 it wont work!!
This requires you to know someone who gets up at 5 am though lol. I’ve never personally met someone who got up at 5 am. I just get called “crazy” when people find out I get up around that time.
Also, not sure how many people WANT to be around someone else at 5 am. That may ruin relationships lol
There’s definitely something to this.
Ok working out after work sucks. I saved my run for after work since I wanted to run in the sun and not the rain but it was just a mess. Felt in a rush, traffic everywhere, wanted to get it done so I could go home and eat and do other stuff. Mornings work so much better for me, I just wish the sun rose at like 4:30 am every day so I could run in it
Night Glo Run in Milwaukee tonight. My first ever running “event”.
It will be interesting to deal with running while being surrounded by people, how the energy effects me, trying to stay steady and run my own race and not try to keep up with others and most importantly remembering to start off slow and not come out sprinting like I’ll probably feel like doing because of the atmosphere.
Smart move on my part to get a “trial” experience of this (tonight is only 6.2 miles) before my marathon in November. That would have been a lot to take in at once on top of the nervousness of running a marathon.
Considering getting a fitbit versa today, anyone use fitbit? Thoughts? What model?
Ended up getting third place in my age group (30-34) with 50:16 time (8:06 average) and 20th overall out of 352 people.
I wasn’t really considering time at all but wanted to be around 9 minutes a mile so this was a great surprise, especially finishing top 3 in my age group. Had no idea until I was wandering over by what turned out to be the announcement board that everyone was standing by.
I have one. Not sure what model it is. It seems to be pretty accurate. The battery last a long time. I don't have to charge it too often.
It was a gift and I kind of lost interest in it. After awhile I stopped caring how many steps I walk. So I don't wear it that often.
Ok I need to get srs and go back to the gym and eat well. I'm gaining weight which is like fine, except my jeans are getting uncomfortable and my butt is hanging out of my skirts and I'm not about to spend all this money on a new wardrobe. My butt looks great lol so yay, but a lot of the weight is also going to my hips/oblique/"love handles" or whatever hence the uncomfortable pants.
My depression plays the hardest part. When it's acting up I just have zero desire to do anything, let alone grocery shop, prepare food, exercise, etc. It's a super hard slump for me to work past.
I hate when ppl say others make too many excuses to not go to the gym and they just don't prioritize. Like maybe that's true for some but omg it's hard af. Like today I had to go grocery shopping on my lunch break because it was either get food for the week or go to the gym. Then I got off work at 7:15pm and I'm at the gym now but like yeah it's hard and it sucks. I can't even imagine if I had kids and stuff. When I get done with the gym it'll basically be shower -> quick snack (or meal if I'm lucky) -> sleep. Don't blame ppl who don't wanna do that!
Down 12 lbs and very much in a rhythm right now, just taking it day by day and really pushing the momentum forward, I feel really really good, it's been a little over 2 weeks.
But I don't wanna
Have to lay off running for a bit (so upset), anyone have recommendations for their favorite low impact workouts?
