I’ve determined that 6am workout classes are the way to prioritize and fit in exercise. As a result, I’ve discovered that there’s something quite depressing about oversleeping and thinking “because I did not get up at 5:30 I am not going to fit in everything I want to do today”.
But on Monday I made it, and again this morning. And instead I thought – this is how committed I am to achieving everything I want to.
Crazy audacious goals, are, by their nature, hard to reach. The hardest part of a 6am workout is just making it out the door. Manage that, and the rest is pretty easy.
I’m trying a new strategy here. I have an option of two 6am classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. One is spin, which I adore, and have to leave at 5:45 for. The other is bootcamp, which is a little scarier, and I have to leave at 5:55 for. So I set my alarm for 5:30 and on Monday my feer of bootcamp propelled me out the door and up the road in time. This morning I was groggy after a later night than I should have had (Girl Geek dinner) and ended up at bootcamp.
Which wasn’t as bad as I feared. And whilst it’s likely that I still won’t achieve absolutely everything I want to today, I do feel that I made the best start I could.
What strategies do you employ for tricking yourself into things? And fitting everything in?
