It's quite simple really. Are you ready for it? Ok, here goes:
Don't take any fitness advice from me.
I've been pretty consistent with my routine for a few months now. And oddly enough it's not working. Perhaps you'll help me figure it out? I do weights and cardio. I watch what I eat. I log what I eat. And I feel fantastic doing it. I've putting the kids to bed and running down to my cold basement to do my thing at night. One problem? It leaves me energized so I don't sleep right away and so I'm tired the next day.
No, I can't work out in the mornings. The glue from my sheets is set to release me *just* in time to get myself and the kids ready in the mornings before leaving for work. No deviations from the plan. Getting up at 5:30 in the morning is just ridiculous. At one point I fooled myself into believing that I would get up and start my day right. I did it a handful of times and that was it. Nigh time works better for actually having a routine.
But really... it hasn't been working lately. (Here comes the problem you were supposed to help me solve) I mean what's wrong with working out one full week, and taking two off, back on for one more week and then two off again, and so on and so forth? A routine, is a routine, is a routine... why does it matter that its not often? No need to answer, really. I know its bad. I wish it was easier. I was doing good (3 weeks straight) until I found out about losing my job, and that was.... umm... a lil over 3 weeks ago. My inspiration is gone and I'm oh so sad. And not happy. Boo. =(
