Fitness Blogger Challenge; Day 2

Day 2: Do you workout in the morning or at night? Why?

It really depends on the day, lately, my routine has been out of whack. I'm changing that, taking back my routine!! 

When I run, it's been random lately, husband has been out to sea and is getting ready to go on deployment. Outdoors runs happen early morning (5 AMish, hasn't happened in a while), to afternoon (when husband is home), to mid-morning on the treadmill (which has been CHAOTIC with 3 girls in the playroom; baby girl is a CLIMBER). We haven't been to the gym in nearly 3 weeks, due to that craziness. Some days, I load the baby girls into double jogger and (Leanna and) head outdoors for running intervals. I recently joined a Meetup/FB Group, Moms Run This Town, and have my FIRST Evening Run tonight!! I'm excited to get outdoors and explore new running paths in a cute little town and to meet (an)other mother runner(s)!!

When I spin, it's usually at night after I put the girls down for bed. Especially, since I moved my bike upstairs to the bedroom. It's kind of like a SWEATFEST to unwind for the day. And, I LOVE it.

Other routines like strength typically happen before the girls wake up for the morning or during naptime. I have to FOCUS on my workouts otherwise, I feel like I'm not giving it my 100%. There was a time when I thought I could keep the girls entertained with TV or busy body activities, NOPE!! They were all about what I was doing, cute to watch them TRY to do this and that but crazy distracting. 

Make. It. Happen.

  1. Omg! I love that you own a spinning bike! Do you do soinning or cycling DVD's?

  2. Janice, I LOVE to do my own routines. I took SPIN at our last duty station, and took lots of "notes"! I'll be working on my Spin Certification soon; SO EXCITED!!
