This morning the alarm went off at 5:45 a.m., and I just laid in bed. I didn’t want to get up, and thinking about walking- nope. I haven’t been walking for the past week, and this morning I wasn’t “feeling” it.
I got my phone, and began the normal part of my morning routine of scrolling through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (still in bed). One the the people I follow on Instagram, @onestepcloser_vsg, is weight loss poster. Her journey is inspirational, and her post this morning was perfect:
Why work-out before work?
- It’s often the most peaceful time of the day & a great way to get some alone time.
- It preps you for the day, waking up your brain, clears the mind & helps organize your thoughts.
- Gets in your exercise first thing & you won’t have to worry about it for the rest of the day.
- It boosts your metabolism & gets your digestion moving for the whole day.
All of these reasons were why I stared walking in the morning to begin with…to boost my day. New habits, right? So, this lazy butt feeling of a morning, I got up and walked. I only walked for 20 minutes. But I walked. I thanked her as well for helping me get out of bed this morning!
