6 REASONS TO WORK OUT IN THE MORNING

Got papped in the gym this morning

IT'S OUT THE WAY! After a long, stressful  day at work, the last thing you want to do is slog it out on the treadmill! Get your workout in early, and then you can concentrate on tackling the rest of the day.

Happy hormones! Exercise realises endorphins, so by working out as soon as you wake up you will be sure to have a great day!

Carpe Diem! Having a lie-in is all fun and games until it's 5pm and you're still in your pyjamas in bed eating Domino's. Wake up early and the seize the day! There is no greater feeling of satisfaction than making a to-do list and having everything ticked off by the end of the day.

Kick start your water intake! I always carry a 1L water bottle with me when I hit the gym, and 9 time out of 10 I drink the whole thing, and refill it on my way out. That's already 2L of water out of the recommended 3L boxed off! It also triggers my brain to keep refilling it throughout my day. When I don't go to the gym, I always forget how important it is to drink lots of water and probably don't even get through a litre.

You don't need to ruin a good make-up day! Any boys reading this will be shaking their heads in disgust, but it is something us girls (well, I do!) consider when we are on the fence about whether to go to the gym or not. If you work out early, you can shower afterwards, get dolled up and not have to worry about getting sweaty and having to shower again later that day if you have evening plans. #wasteofmakeup

It puts you in the right mind set! After a tough session, the last thing I want to do is eat junk later on that day and undo all my hard work. On my way home I like to plan healthy, delicious lunch and dinner ideas for the rest of my day. (The 'My Fitness Pal' app is perfect for this!)


Lettuce wrap fajitas! A great carb free alternative


Do you have any tips on getting those work outs in? I  am slowly but surely getting my motivation back!

  1. I'm thinking of swapping gyms to one closer to work for this exact reason! Also I need to try those lettuce wrap fajitas, droooooool.
