I have been going to bed at 9:30pm. The same time the teenagers are going to bed. For some reason, it has made the whole house run a little smoothly of a night time. I set the alarm for 5:30am. That gives me time to get up, have a cup of tea, a light breakfast and watch the news. I then wake the kids up and while they are getting ready for school, I get on the treadmill.
I pop on the headphones & crank up the music. I find that music is great for motivation. I have playlist made just for exercise. I have no idea what is happening outside of myself and that treadmill. I do intervals of fast walking, jogging & running. It just depends on what song comes on. It gets me pumped & ready for the day ahead.
By getting up early to exercise, I am making my fitness my number one priority. Then no matter what happens for the rest of the day, I know that the exercise is done. If I have time in the afternoon, then I can jump on the treadmill and do another session. That is a bonus!
It really does feel good to just get shit done!
