I have started to see a trend on my Sunday nights: the Late Night Fitness Routine. At about 10:30, while sitting on my duff, watching TV, or blogging, or eating a snack, or shooting the breeze, I seem to remember that weigh-in is the next day. I remember that I was not 100% on my eating. I did not drink all the H2O that I probably should have done. I begin the Panic-Whine cycle.
The Panic-Whine is a combination of the 'oh sh*t, I need to get off my a$$ and move!' and the 'but I am so tiiiirrrreeeed. Whaaaa!' They kind of come out of my mouth at once in the form of a very heavy sigh. *sigh* However, this is the last chance to get the burn before Mr. Scale makes his judgement.
Then, I putter about, thinking about what exercise clothes to wear. Then, I think about what my fitness routine should be. Should I run? Should I do a DVD? Should I do some fitness moves that Trainer Debbie has taught me? By the time I am dressed, have heart rate monitor attached, shoes tied, and IPod tunes selected, it is closer to 11:15 at night.
So, after 45 minutes of prep, I got in a 35 minute workout. I did some wood chop hell. I ran two miles. I probably could have kept going, but it was late. Work beckoned in the am. However, I liked the workout. It was a great temperature to run. I got a good stretch in before bed.
I am wondering now if this should be the trend for my Sundays or if I should insert my fitness earlier. What do you guys think?
