This is my call for encouragement from the ranks!
I went to my follow-up on my meeting a month ago with the trainer at the gym. And the results were not good. I gained 5 pounds. So, at the strong recommendation of the trainer, I’m trying to go to the gym at 5:00 AM.
Yeah. 5 o’clock in the morning.
Also called “What the heck am I doing out of bed already?!”
And, hey! I did it this morning. It was really early. And I was really tired for hours afterward. But the trainer had some really good points. I joined the gym to see some changes in my weight. I met with her to get her help in making that change. And if what I’m doing isn’t working, I should follow her advice. And her advice is to join her at the gym at 5:oo in the morning. Plus, the research I did this morning (all 5 minutes worth) made it sound like working out in the morning has some really great benefits.
So I’m giving it a go. And I’m making it widely public to all of you so you can help keep me accountable. Monday through Thursday. 5 AM. Fridays I’ll go in the afternoon because I’ll have more time. Except for this Friday because we’re going out of town, so I’ll be there at 5.
I might be a little crazy. But I’ve hit the point where I’m closer to 250 than 200 pounds and that’s just sad. What am I doing over 200 pounds?! What am I doing over 150 pounds?! I have a lot of work to do. And if 5 AM is what has to happen in order to lose that weight, then 5 AM is what I have to do.
Justin is being fantastically encouraging about it. He’s wonderful. But I don’t want to make him have to do all the support because that’s just rough. So can ya’ll help me, too?
I really need all the help I can get . . . .
