Chronology of a Missed Workout

8:00pm - Decide to go to gym in morning for stretching, core work and a few easy miles on treadmill.

10:00pm - Pack gym bag and set out workout clothes. All is set for a no brainer, grab n' go morning.

12:00am - baby wakes up and starts to cry.

3:30am - Baby wakes up and starts to cry. Again.

6:00am - Alarm goes off. Hit snooze.

6:09am - Alarm goes off again. Hit snooze.

6:18am - Alarm goes off again. Hit snooze.

6:27am - Alarm goes off again. Punch snooze. Alarm experiences short flight across room.

6:45am - At elevator, running behind. Feeling guilty for not walking dog. Realize I only have an hour to get to gym, exercise and get home in time to go to work.

6:46am - Elevator arrives as I turn and walk back to apartment. I'll just run near the house.

6:50am - Back at elevator with happy dog.

6:52am - Outside picking up dog poop. It's really cold out.

7:07am - Fumble around in the dark for cold-weather gear.

7:10am - Give up and go back to bed.

8:06am - Wake up (again) and still manage to be late to work.

I have had WAY too many mornings like that lately, thankfully I'm not training for anything! :)

Sounds like you need to plan a day to sleep in.

Ha! this was me, except without the baby and in the afternoon instead of the morning (if that makes any sense).

I applaud you for having the strong intention to keep up your schedule. I think you're doing great.

Your not alone, and there's always next Monday to try again.

LOL! You win some, you lose some. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it ;-)
