Last night, Gerard talked me into going for a run with him. Walking/Running with him wasn't terrible. Minus the freezing weather outside, it was nice to spend some time with him, talk and get in a workout.
BUT...before we left, everything inside of me was screaming to stay in my warm, comfy pj's and keep doing a whole lot of nothing. Lately, I have not wanted to work out at all. Maybe it is the cold weather. Or maybe it is just pure laziness.
This week, I am starting a bootcamp once a week at 5am. Hear that....5AM! Now I am not a morning person. Never have been, never will be. This also means that I will have to LEAVE my house earlier than 4:30. That is early people! Starting in February, this will become something I do 3x a week for 5 weeks. I will definitely become a morning person whether I like it or not!
There are some good sides to this craziness though. Obviously I will be working out and getting into better shape. The other good part of this will be that the class is from 5-6 and then I will have a gap until I go to work at 7 or 7:30. This means that I will be able to have an extra hour or so in the mornings to sit at Starbucks, read my bible/devotions, and spend time with my blogs.
It has been so tough for me to fit everything I want to do in my day and I am excited that God created this opportunity for me to have time.
I am so scared to start this new workout but I know it will be good for me. Luckily I will be doing this with a friend and won't be alone. I will have someone else by my side to push me, encourage me and keep me accountable.
