Day 13 (day 6 / week 2)

Today I decided to wake up early and get the exercising out of the way. I knew yesterday that today was going to be a busy day and didn't know where to fit exercise in. I have to go find a job working at night so that we have some money to pay for our move. The only place I saw to fit exercise in was when I was sleeping lol. I told my hubby that when he left for work, I was going to wake up and exercise. He laughed. We both laughed (mine was a little more of a cry). Everyday I have a LONG luxurious sleep (except for when I'm sore) because I am a SAHM. I can do that. Logan lets me. He doesn't usually wake up until after 8 am anyway (and that's because I wake him up!). I'm a lucky gal, so I can afford to wake up a little early. I count my blessings that he sleeps in everyday, because I have friends who have to get up at 5am because that's when their kids do. ((hugs))

So I didn't get up at 5:30am, when my hubby left for work. I woke up at 7. lol. Logan was still sleeping and I was able to get my exercise in, so it's all good. I have the rest of the year to work on waking up earlier to exercise. In fact, I would prefer to exercise earlier than later.

Can you guess what I did today? That's right! "Ramp It UP!" the second phase of the Slim in 6 Series with Debbie Siebers (from beachbody). I didn't have fun today. I was tired and lazy. I think it's because I didn't take my vitamins yet and exercised first thing. I need to eat too. I read somewhere (I think in school) that it takes like 2 hours to digest, and you shouldn't eat before you exercise, because your body isn't able to give its full attention (energy) because it's distracted. I read if you do eat before you exercise, to do it 2 hours before. *shrugs* I'm not a professional so I don't know. I can't remember where I read it, but it sounds good and kind of makes sense so I didn't eat either. I think that took away from my energy too.

I hope everyone has a great day exercising today! If I can do it, so can you! Just get out there and do it! You'll be glad you did! I am :). *high fives*

Smiles and blessings, and see you guys tomorrow!

I can do this. I am a star (so are you!).

I like to eat a yogurt or a piece of fruit before I work out in the morning - yogurt is good because there is protein and carbs in it; fruit is good because it digests easily and doesn't really interfere with your exercise (cause cramps, etc). You could also try drinking a sport drink (some of them come with caffiene) for a little morning boost. I think experts say to limit it to like, 50-100 calories if you're going to work out right after you eat. After you work out, you want to refuel with some kind of protein - eggs or a smoothie with whey protein or a protein shake.
