I wake up with a bottle of water near my bed. Look at the app and when offered I try the breakfast suggestions. Such as the protein milkshake, it was delicious I would have never thought about making that before. Also I’m excited to workout with the help of this app. It motivates me to focus on my goals.
For me, the morning is very important time of day. Get it right, and I typically have a very satisfying day. I like to have some quiet time first thing. I have water as per the program, then I kind of allow myself to come out of the sleep state. It takes me I think more time to transition from sleeping to waking than most. Don't get me wrong. I wake up early. It just takes me time to get into the day.
I also watch some form of entertainment. Usually film or TV, or even YouTube. This is because I am in the entertainment field, and it does get my day rolling. Meditation. Exercising. Walking the dog. Forgot about the morning pages!
Then a great breakfast! Then I use the exercise to decide upon the 3 most important tasks to get done!
The morning routine is still getting honed, but these are the highlights.
I'm walking the dog and riding my bike to work (30-35 mins).
I had these routines before I started with fabulous 😁
If u want u can make ur workouts longer through the days if u want it does get me tired but it does get me focused through the day
I do plunge and Sauna after
I feel good energized and ready to start m y day
My morning routine is pretty simple: I wake up at 5:15, warm up some water, let that heat up while I brush my teeth and scrape my tongue, drink 30 oz of warm water while reading, start the coffee maker, stretch while it’s brewing, and then I enjoy a cup of coffee before the kids wake up.
Also: Netflix has a fireplace video that I put on every morning to set a relaxing space for myself.
- How do you keep exercising interesting? I don’t want to hit a plateau.
- I only do calisthenics. I have been doing core training, push-ups, and pull-ups every day for a few months. I’ve been stuck at around 20 max pull-ups for months and can’t seem to get stronger. I do different variations every day so I almost never do the same exercise 2 days in a row. My question is would it be better to take rest days on core exercises? And should I focus on certain muscle groups instead of doing everything in a day? When I take a rest day I feel like I’m weaker the next day, so I try and take as few as possible. But I’m just not sure if it’s my program. Also, if anyone knows of some great calisthenic exercises to get shredded it would be greatly appreciated. I need a good calisthenic workout program.
- How do you find an exercise you enjoy that doesn’t cost too much?
- Is it necessary to sign up for a goal (e.g. a 5k run) to keep your exercise on track?
- How do you find exercise habits for disabled people? I’m finding it a challenge to several things. I can’t jog or run. At the moment I also have broken ribs so I can only walk short distances. Is there anything else I can do?
- Do you find exercising with a friend or partner more rewarding than exercising alone?
- What do you do for better sleep?
- How do you prepare for your morning routine? Does it start the night before?
- How can I stop planning things but never finishing them?
- What commitment devices do you use to make sure you complete your exercise habit?
