My fiance and I have been doing a weight loss challenge through work for about a week, and today was the first day that we decided to do some serious exercise to help contribute to our weight loss.
We set our alarm half an hour earlier and decided to take a bike ride around our neighborhood. It was early, and we didn't get up quite when the alarm went off, but we got out there and did our thing.
I really thought it was going to be a lot harder than it ended up being. We went to bed early last night so we'd be sure to be plenty rested for the ride today. I actually ended up waking earlier than we had to, but I just laid in bed until the alarm went off. And then I laid in bed a little more, but not as much as I expected!
Once I got up, it was easy to get dressed and get outside. I'd already laid out my outfit for this morning last night. And once I stepped outside, it was even easier to be motivated to ride because the weather was so beautiful! It was warm, but not hot, and everything had that fresh, morning feel to it.
We only ended up riding for about 10 minutes, but that's 10 more minutes than if we would have stayed in bed! It was a really mind-clearing experience, and it was nice feeling like the whole world was at our fingertips, before everyone else woke up and went out and about.
Does the morning give you that same feeling? What do you like to do in the morning before everyone else gets going? When do you like to work out?
