Getting up at 6 am sucks for an insomniac night owl. It suuuucks.
But, I have learned that if I push through, get going, and exercise first thing in the morning, the rest of the day goes much more smoothly.
I don't sleep well, and 6 am is painful for me. But somehow, by the time I have gotten the kids on the bus and walked the dog, I am ready for a workout. And I finish that workout and feel ready to start the day. I get more stuff done. I'm awake, I'm energized, and I no longer want to crawl back into bed.
After I work out I can sit down and get some writing done, and then I can get on with what ever else is planned for my day. If I skip it, I continue to feel tired and lethargic. It gets me moving, it gets me going. I actually missed it during the summer when lazy mornings moved into lazy afternoons and I got nothing done.
I'm not a schedule-oriented person, but somehow having a schedule for excercise actually makes me feel better throughout the day.
Day 19, Reason 19: Because getting going moves the whole day.
