What if I told you that you can be a morning workout person, by deciding you’re going to do it? It sounds too simple, right? Every morning for the last 3 months, I’ve set my alarm for 5:45 am to go to 6 am hot yoga, 6:30 am and 7 am to workout before work, yet it never happened. I struggled to wake up early enough to carpool to the office with my roommate. The only time I woke up early to exercise was in Arizona and it was an hour ahead of California. I went to the gym every day at 8 or 9 am, got home to shower and login before working the rest of the day. It was the first time, I was able to make that routine work. I wanted to do it in California but waking up early when it’s cold was “too hard”.
Then I started working on my mindset. On Sunday night, I DECIDED that I would get up at 6:45 am, go to the gym downstairs and do 30 minutes of cardio. Put the “appointment” on my calendar, every morning for 7 days. I’m happy to say, that it was easy to get up this morning because I made an appointment to get my workout in. I planned some business books to “read” on Audible so I can get personal development and cardio in at once.
My goal for the next 7 days is to wake up between 6:30 – 6:45 am to go to the gym and do 30 minutes of cardio before getting ready for work. Strength training for the week will be hot yoga level 2 classes, yoga sculpt or hot yoga fusion.
During lunch, I was inspired by my friends at work who were making these soups that sounded super tasty. I asked for the Cauliflower Soup recipe since I had most of the ingredients. Even though I didn’t have everything, I DECIDED, I was going to make the Golden Cauliflower Soup with what I had and live stream it on Facebook.
My goal is to record a cooking show for YouTube and live stream on Facebook, once a week. I haven’t been doing that because of excuses I managed to conjure up. The whole point of the day was to DO everything I DECIDED to do. It made the day so much easier because I didn’t have to come up with excuses for my laziness. Instead, I did what I decided to do.
NOTE: I will share the Golden Cauliflower Soup recipe if Wise and Well, Nicole gives me permission to post on my blog.
