I've been pretty lazy these past two weeks. A while ago I decided to start going to the gym in the morning, so I could get my workouts out of the way, and because it's actually much nicer in the morning: less crowded, natural light coming in, less stress throughout the day. The only problem is I *hate* waking up. I don't even have to wake up that early to get to the gym. But when my alarm clock goes off at 7:30 (even if I went to bed by 11 the night before) I am just in a world of hate. And lately I've just been resetting the clock and going back to bed. I mean, I'm still getting in my workouts (after work) but I know I'm shortchanging myself by doing this. Does anybody have any tips for actually getting up early? I don't know how some of you wake up before 6:00, that's insane to me.
I guess another reason I don't like to get up is that I don't seem to get restful sleep, so I'm tired and sore when I wake up. I toss and turn all night, and I always wake up stiff and my neck hurts. I'm starting to think it's time for a new bed and pillows, but that'll have to wait until after the holidays, since beds aren't cheap.
On the diet front, everything has been good. I've been eating much less starchy carbs and more protein and fats (good fats, mostly). I also bought a whole bunch of frozen vegetables yesterday, so I have no excuse not to eat veggies with every meal.
