Busy day today...getting things organized (trying at least...it is a never ending project), doing laundry (again with the never ending project), putting stuff away since we were gone this weekend and working...all of this after I had my workout (and coffee!)
One of the biggest reasons why I exercise in the morning is because our life is just too busy at night. Squeezing a workout in at night is pretty much impossible and morning is pretty much my only time to fit in exercise. With three kids we almost always have something going on and have to rush out of the house and today is one of those days. As a mom I have really tried to limit what we do and keep the kids' activities low...which in our society today I know that we aren't really the "normal" family. I know some families here that actually have a crockpot in their car and coolers because they are so busy that this is the only time they get to eat...on the run. I really don't like that rushed feeling and my kids don't function well that way either.
I was excited to get my week off on the right start today and do some lifting! I did stay up a little bit late though last night reading some of my new books...about getting certified for cycling! I just couldn't NOT read them or crack them open a little bit. I have three books...cycling, group fitness and kickboxing. I'm starting with cycling and will add on from there and take the tests as I am ready.
I posted my workout below that I did today...just in case you want to know what I did while my family was sleeping all snug as a bug in a rug in their beds. :) It was also 8 degrees outside when I left the house and my workout pants are super thin and do NOT feel good on my cold, leather seats. Brrr. I record my workouts at www.fitocracy.com and if you like to exercise and want a virtual place to keep track of it this is a great one. The website gives me points based on the workout and how much I weigh...I don't give myself points, just in case you are wondering what that is about. :) If you are looking for something to record food this isn't the site for you...that feature isn't available. A few great places to record food are www.myfitnesspal.com and www.myplate.gov.
