This morning I woke up and headed to the gym around 6:30am. I really have to commend all of your early bird workout folks because it is so difficult to do. I just love my bed too much.
I must say I’m always so happy after my morning workout. It really gets my day going. It’s also nice knowing that I have the whole evening to relax. 😀 After the gym, I came back and had the rest of my leftover banana pancakes for breakfast. I topped them with some almond butter and warmed them up in the microwave. They were so good warmed up and the almond butter was easy to spread, making my breakfast super tasty.
I was able to motivate myself by doing incline walking cardio. I’m always a fan of this workout because it makes me bust a sweat but just feels easier in my mind. Anyone else a fan of incline treadmill workouts? Following the treadmill, I did some bicep curls and ended with this TribeSports ab workout. I did 20 reps of each exercise and I especially liked the crunch twist workout. Lee and I are going to Hawaii next month and so I’m trying to get my abs in tip-top shape. Ab challenge accepted!
That probably means I shouldn’t be eating a lot of this…
Let’s be honest, I can’t give up my love for sweets. Cue moderation. Lee was in town on his way back from a business trip so we grabbed Chipotle for dinner and Sweet Frog for dessert.
Probably not the healthiest meal but it was a special treat. Plus, I only can eat half of my burrito so the other half served as my lunch for today.
I’m excited it’s Thursday- have a good one!
Question: How do you motivate yourself to workout in the morning? Just a born rawkstar? 😉
