2 ice cubes

1/2 cup orange juice

1/4 cup almond milk

Why I try my best to workout in the mornings!

Good Morning!

So I  get a lot of the “Ewe that’s so early! Why do you wake up so early to workout?” And….. this is why!

If I don’t, I just lay around in bed all morning, usually just flipping through channels and its probably one of the most un-motivating things ever! …. Then, when it’s time for me to actually get ready for work, and slower, I’m just not up for going to work either.

Also it clears my mind, wakes me up and puts me in a good mood for the rest of the day. YAY endorphins!!! Plus I don’t have to go throughout my day thinking “Shoot, I need to get my workout in, when am I going to do that?” (mentally planning to go after work),,,, which honestly rarely happens because I just worked an 8 hr. shift and I’m pooped.. so I don’t want to go.

So needless to say.. just pack your gym bag and everything you need the night before.. and when your alarm goes off, get up and go. Don’t even give your brain time to think about it and change your mind. and sooner or later, it will start to become a habit and your naturally wake up at that time before your alarm clock goes off and you’ll look forward to the morning sweat! =)

Plus you wont have that guilt of not going throughout the day.
