Sounds like a lot to manage! I would recommend applying everything you possibly can, while making room for flexibility. Maybe make your sleeping routine longer, giving your body, more cues that it’s time to sleep, and giving it time to prepare and adjust for that. Ex: turn off your phone Thirty before, brush your teeth, get into pjs or robe, write in your journal, meditate, pray, sing, stretch, do whatever helps you unwind and relax, and get into bed. Try to do it all in order, the repetition is communicating with your body, and the order helps your body understand and what you’re trying to say. Be getting see as consistent as you can, but don’t beat yourself up. There’s always room for grace. I also recommend a white noise machine. Once you’ve slept to it enough times, it’ll help you stay asleep, and it’s an excellent sleep que.
- Any recommendations for easy and short exercises in the morning?
- How do you get out of bed when you’re so tired?
- Do you do the same exercise routine every day or do you mix it up?
- How quickly am I supposed to move from the minimum exercise to something more difficult? Is it okay if I’m still not inspired/motivated to step up my game after a month?
- Are you hydrated?
- What do you do when you just don’t feel like working out/exercising?
- What is your cue? What is your reward?
- What’s the appropriate amount of time to work out after eating?
- Is it better to do light exercise for 90 minutes, or heavy exercise for 30 minutes? The goal is mostly weight loss.
- What do you do when something prevents you from doing your usual exercise method/routine? I have asthma so I can’t run outside. I usually play Step Mania because it gets my heart rate going. But sometimes my tech doesn’t work. And I don’t really have the space to do Zumba or other aerobics. I’ve tried going to the gym, but it takes so much extra time to get ready and leave the house and etc. Difference between spending exactly 30 minutes vs 90 minutes with commuting and getting situated and etc. at the gym. I don’t want exercise to be something I dread doing. Does anyone have something fun they do at home for exercise?
