I mentioned previously that training for the beast is good motivation for me to pull myself out of bed each morning to get myself moving. It is best to move the body first thing in the morning, if possible. It gets the body jumpstarted and sets the metabolism at a higher rate for the whole day which helps with maintaining ideal body weight.
I have to confess that there are some mornings when I just want to roll over and skip the workout. My secret? I force myself to get up… unless I’m sick or injured of course. On those mornings when I got plenty of sleep and feel like I just don’t have the juice to get going… I just go slow! I’m not trying to break any records. I may even reduce my workout a little if I have to… just remember, something is better than nothing! It’s so important to stick to a routine because the body loves routine. I may even find that when I’m having “one of those days,” I may have more energy and feel so much better after my workout… even if I had to half-ass it a little.
