Bedtime And Exercise

I've been going to bed at a decent time for a few weeks now, and I'm loving waking up bright and early. I wonder what will happen when the mornings start getting darker again, I know that we haven't had the Summer yet, but Winter is just around the corner and I hope that I'm into a good gym routine by then.

I've worked out that for me it's best for me to get to the gym first thing. It's quiet (as it seems only a handful of people can manage a 6am start), most of my family are still asleep, it's a great way to start the day, and I can start the day knowing that I've already done the hardest part.

I've also noticed over the last few days that when I exercise first thing in the morning that I do it without thinking, without realising that I'm pushing myself harder. Looking at the work out charts the machines log for me I can see that each session I am steadily pushing harder each time. I'm clocking up more miles each time and I've come to the conclusion that one of my favourite pins on Pinterest is actually true.

Exercise In The Morning Before Your Brain Figures Out What You're Doing!

I just hope my brain doesn't catch up with me until going to the gym every morning is a habit.


  1. I remember going to the gym in the morning before work - you're right. At that point your brain so hasn't figured it all out.
    I'm thinking about a gym membership but hesitant to spend the money cos last time I had one I paid up for the year and only went about three times.

  2. @Glowstars I think that for me I joined the gym because I knew the money spent would motivate me to go. If you join up to one I'll come up with a challenge for us both to work on!

  3. You are amazing! I think you are doing very well! Keep it up! x I have started to cut out the junk in my diet.

  4. @Kelly Thanks Kelly, and how fab!
