Awake before noon?

Monday, July 08, 2013

Holy moly. I actually woke up before my alarm. I'm attempting to get back into the habit of working out prior to work. I go in much more alert and powerful when I workout prior to work. I work a night shift 4pm - 2am, so my schedule may seem off, but it's a schedule nonetheless.

Up at 11. Dressed by 11:15. Watched one of my favorite Sparker's vlogs, then off to walk/run in the 90F tropics of Baton Rouge Louisiana.

I'm back. I'm drenched with sweat and I walked a LOT Of the way. I was at about 18 min/mil, so better than my 5 mile trip yesterday at the very least. Time for yoga to stretch out my muscles that were achy from yesterday.

Then I'm off to take a shower, then get my car a well needed oil change.

One final question - Has anyone else found a way to tame their belly pooch during working out? I don't want to wear spanx, because I think it'd be miserable to workout in, plus they are hard to wash. My lower belly has started to hang above my pubis area since I've lost a lot of the upper belly fat. It must have been supporting it, because I chaff now when I didn't back when I was heavier. I coat the area in baby powder, but the poor powder can only absorb so much. Not to mention it gets in the way when I try to do jack knives, or anything involving sitting up. Running up elevatation, it makes a really embarassing flopping noise against my legs. Any help would be amazing. Links would be just mindblowing.

    You should try workout clothing that is absorbent , lightweight, & does hold you in. Its pricey but I think it will suit your need. Off the top of my head the name escapes me. You can find them online.
