I am no longer trying to get up at 7 am to exercise and start my day early. About a month or so ago I said I would try it for the exercise aspects and because it was too hot here at any other time. I tried it, and some mornings it was actually in the low 90s, still too hot for me, but I got some milage those days.
I ended up seldom getting more than five hours sleep, had to take naps all the time, ate too much, and was a ton less efficient than I am at night.
So now, even though we are still having record heat and a ton of smoke from the fires, I am just going to force the exercise during the day and early evenings. I am scared of the gyms at my age, so going to get the milage as I can in the evenings or inside our condo complex until the heat breaks.
I have a pretty major exercise goal for the middle of November, so seven weeks to stay focused, lose weight, and build milage. There was no focus with my schedule getting up at 7 am.
I am just a night person. I’ve got to come to accept that.
Live and learn. I tell other people to not be stuck and afraid to try something new.
So I tried this. One month. Nope. Didn’t work.
In a month I’ll let you know how this goes. (grin) At least now I should be able to get back to even more writing, which will feel great, I have to admit.
