Even through I juggled two jobs while going to college, it was so much easier to fit working out in. Most times I'd do it in between classes. Now that I am an adult, it is so much harder. I get two choices - before or after work. Either way, I am tired when I do it. The last couple weeks, I have been going through a daily cycle of procrastination. It goes like this.
10:00 pm: Sets alarms for 5:45 am.
5:45 am: Reset alarm for 7:00 am and get up at 7:00 am for work.
7:00 am: Pack a gym bag and go to work.
4:30 pm: Tell myself I will go after the gym calms down and isn't busy.
7:00 pm: I'll go in the morning.
You can see where the problem lies. I admit it. When I am tired, I am lazy. But, now as an adult, work is the main focus of the day. This means I have to work out in the morning or evening. I am coming to terms that I have to get more strict with myself. Basically, I need to get up in the morning and do it when the gym is nearly empty and nothing can sneak in before it.
I know if I find a consistent time that my work outs would be consistent. I am looking at starting to train for half marathon and an obstacle course. Ironically, the half marathon, I'd need to have strong hips and the obstacle course a strong upper body.
Right now I am on the fence about the obstacle course but been thinking I might do it as it will give me a reason to strength train. If it's for weight loss, I am like, "What's the point?" I know if I train for a half marathon, strength train three times a week and track my food, I WILL lose weight. But, I need goals to get motivated to do something.
