So I've been thinking...



Problem**: It's a fact. I need to work out more. This having-a-belly thing is just not working for me. I love wearing flowy tops, but I don't love that it's also partly that I need to in order to cover up the love handles...it'd be nice to wear them just because I love them.

Resolution: I am going to attempt something that my college self would be shocked (and a bit ashamed****) of...

I am going to start working out in the mornings before work. Yes, you heard it right. I'm going to try and work out in the mornings 2-3 times a week in the morning before work...meaning around 5:15am. Ugh!! Just saying it sounds awful. BUT the fact is, that I'm really unhappy with how unfit I am feeling and I really do miss having a regular workout schedule.

I'm still doing Zumba on Wednesday evenings (heck yea 1,000 calories in one hour!!) and Pilates on Monday nights. So I figured with those classes plus a couple early morning workouts during the week, I should be able to lose some of this extra weight and maybe even put on some more muscle.

Well, wish me luck!! I will be posting my progress and/or frustration (probably more of the latter) with this idea as I go along.

Until then, I'm going to sleep...at 8:30pm...so I can get up at 5:15 to workout. Oh boy. Lord save me!




**when typing in "problem" into google to look for better sounding synonyms, the phrase "Can of worms" came up. Ha!

****and by ashamed, I mean that never before have I ever considered giving up my precious sleep for anything; especially not to work out and become even more exhausted, therefore wanting more sleep...ok why am I doing this again?!
