I didn’t get up in time to go for a run today. I heard the alarm, switched it off, and went back to sleep.

I’ll keep this in mind next time I’m tempted to sleep in.

love it. and try to use this when I feel ‘guilty’ taking time away from my daughter to work out.

@Dave – I can relate – I do this all too often myself!

@Mizfit – Yes, I feel this way when I workout when my kids are awake (I usually do it either early morning or late evening). But then I just try to tell myself that because I am keeping myself healthy, the quality of the time I have with my kids is greater.

I work out every day from Monday to Friday. I did drop off on the intensity of my exercise though, and now I find I’m not in as good a shape as I was 6 months ago. I’ve started raising the intensity again.

and that is where i find myself now…in bit of a tune-up. but ask me at the end of the year how i’m doing….and my response will be…..drum roll please……”I’m doing just fine!” 🙂

@Marelisa – right on, intensity plays an important part. I find that if I’m not mentally focused during a workout, then it ends up being a poor workout.

@Rebecca – that’s the attitude!
