When I tell people I like to sleep, I mean it. Sometimes I used to say I would sleep my life away if I could, but I have stopped that because it sounds ridiculous! Regardless, I like to sleep. I pretty much get up in the mornings with enough time to get out of the house, not a minute to spare.

Which brings me to my new challenge…ugh

It’s safe to say over the past 5 months or so I have gained some weight back that I had lost over the summer. I feel gross and unattractive and my clothes aren’t fitting like they used too. They still “fit” so I think that’s why the weight gain went unnoticed until recently.

The reason I fell off the exercise wagon was school, it seemed to be consuming every part of my life and I had to face facts, school is important, so I let it slide. So now that the work load is a little bit lighter I have to get my body back into shape.

Like I was saying before, I hate the way I look, I hate the way I run out of breath going up the stairs and I hate that I am now gaining weight in places I never used to before. I have back fat now people!! Once I saw those rolls in the back, I was like, I need to do something!!

So where to fit in a good workout? My schedule is still a bit all over the place, so committing to a gym isn’t a good idea, but I do enjoy my home workouts and find them very effective.

Are you ready for the challenge??

6:30am wake-up call twice a week for 30 minutes of strength training.

(I also plan on doing Zumba at least one night a week, most likely Thursdays.)

Now I know some of you are thinking, 6:30 isn’t really that early, but for me it is. I don’t get out of bed normally until 7:05–so getting up this extra half an hour is really going to SUCK. But I want to start liking my body again, so I need to make the necessary adjustments.

I would like to know if anyone is up for this challenge with me? I do so much better when I know there are others who are in the same boat. Support from friends/bloggers is huge when you are trying to accomplish something. I’m done making excuses! Who’s with me?

Cheers!

    Good luck! I need to do the same. I wake up at 5:30….and then cuddle my dog and watch the news until 6:45 when I get up. I used to get right up and head to the gym. There should be an in-between place for me…
