In the past when I've made the effort to exercise regularly, I did so during the morning. So, this meant that I had to get up an hour earlier than I needed to and that is tough sometimes. So, since I'm having to get up early to take Kian to school on most days there is almost no way I would be motivated to get up at 6am to exercise.
My plan this time is to do my exercising in the evening and so far has been a great success. I find it much easier to motivate myself to work out since I'm already up and there aren't any time pressures. One mistake I did make and won't again...was to work out too late in the evening. I'm realizing that I will be wide awake for 2 hours or so after working out so I have to plan my bed time around that.
The one caveat to this is that I'm likely going to start taking the dog for a long walk 2-3 mornings a week when I don't have to take Kian to school. Sure, this may not be a ton of actual exercise but it definitely makes my dog a happier guy.
