After spending a little more than a week away from the gym, it felt good to be back today! There’s something about the gym atmosphere that motivates me and I like my morning routine.
What I do not like is when Ryan sets the alarm for 4:45 a.m. without telling me. 5 a.m. is the time we agreed on. I can wrap my head around waking up at 5 a.m., but there is something horrific about waking up in the four o’clock hour.
Fortunately for Ryan, I didn’t realize that he set the alarm for 4:45 a.m. until we were walking out the door and I glanced at the clock. Some words were exchanged, I’ll just tell you that.
Once we arrived at the gym, I was tempted to hit the weights, but knew my muscles needed a break after yesterday’s living room workout, so I hopped on the elliptical and did my 50 minute elliptical interval workout instead. Sweaty!
We’re running very low on food right now but are trying to make it through Sunday without stopping by the grocery store, so today’s breakfast included the food we had on hand.
Eggs + Shredded cheese + Onion + Broccoli
And a banana on the side!
Question of the Morning
- What time do you wake up?
- How early is “horrifically early” for you in the morning?
I wake up at 5 a.m. most weekdays and trrry to sleep in on the weekends, though I am usually awake by 7:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Horrifically early for me is anytime before 5 a.m. on weekdays and anytime before 6 a.m. on weekends. Ick!

I have been LOVING T25 lately! It is easy to get in before work and kicks my booty! I don’t have a gym membership so I like to do a mix of T25, elliptical that we purchased last year, yoga, Pilates DVD and I am looking into Julian Michaels body revolution. I hate spending too much money on DVDs but honestly it is cheaper than a gym membership and I am so much more likely to get up at 6 and walk into our home gym (consists of some weights, elliptical, yoga mat, resistance bands and tv with DVD player) nothing fancy but gets the job done and I don’t have to look presentable at all. Plus I like to workout first thing in the morning while my husband is asleep so I am not missing anything and nothing is scheduled at 6am 🙂 thanks for the workout!
