That’s me. I’m lazy.

Don’t get me wrong- I’m not lazy about a lot of things. My job. Watching my kids. Running my errands.

But when it comes to working out, I’m lazy. It doesn’t help that the only time I can find to work out is the crack of dawn- specifically 5:15 am Spin classes. I adore Spinning- and “adore” isn’t a work I typically use when talking about exercise. The pulse pounding music. The yelling instructor. Pushing myself to go faster, further.  It’s really the only form of cardio exercise I enjoy. Frankly, I’m not coordinated enough to do anything else!

But lordy, 4:45 comes early when I have to get up and leave my warm bed. I do love my warm bed- even more then I adore Spin classes. Once I talk myself out of bed, I have 15 mins to brush my teeth, wash my face, get dressed and get out the door- all while being as quiet as possible and not turning on any lights to make sure I don’t wake anyone.

It’s a lot of fun.

I keep reminding myself that I’m doing this for a reason. I have a few minor health issues that may balloon into bigger issues as I get older if I don’t take care of myself. I don’t want to deal with diabetes and heart disease when I get older- so I work out. I try to eat right. I not only want to set a good example for my kids, I want to live to see them dance at their kid’s wedding.

That said, it doesn’t mean I won’t be pissing and moaning each and every morning when the alarm goes off.
