5 Ways to Get to Your Early Morning Workout

Sometimes, the hardest part of getting your workout in is just getting started or getting to the gym! Here are 5 tips that may make it easier to get going. 

1. Sleep in Your Gym Clothes. When we're tired, the more steps it takes to do something, the less we may want to do it. If you wake up already dressed for the gym, that's one less thing you have to do before heading out the door. 

2. Set your Coffee Pot On a Timer. When it comes to early mornings, it's not that we hate the morning itself, it's the being tired that we despise! If you drink coffee, have your coffee pot timed to start a few minutes before you wake up. If you 
have another favorite caffeinated drink, prep it the night before or set a cup/bottle of it next to your bed. 

3.  Make an Appointment to Meet Someone There. This should be someone you wouldn't want to disappoint (best friend, trainer, etc). Even if we aren't in the mood to show up for ourselves, we can be much more likely to show up if it makes or breaks another person's morning. 
  
4. Plan Your Workout Ahead of Time. Indecision or being intimidated by too many choices can keep us away. If we decide the night before exactly what exercises we are going to do, we can enter with a plan of action. (If you're new to the gym, don't be afraid to ask for a tour when you sign up, so you can scope out where different equipment is). 

5. Journal How you Feel After you Complete an Early Morning Workout. It will help you remember next time that waking up and accomplishing your crack-of-dawn workout felt so much better than sleeping in. You only regret the workout you didn't do!

Self- Fulfilling Prophecies

Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: positive or negative expectations about a situation, event, or person, in which your expectations may affect you or someone else's behavior in a way that causes the expectations to occur.

Example: expecting a person to be unkind based on how they look, you may (consciously or unconsciously) treat them in a way that causes them to act unkind.
Example: a person begins college, all the while telling themselves they aren't "smart enough/ good enough/ meant to" finish college. They may be more likely to drop out of college than those who believe in themselves.  
Sometimes the things we tell ourselves can be so powerful that we really think they're a non negotiable truth. Our thoughts are so powerful that way. We believe there's no way around things so we don't even try.... We believe we aren't capable of
something so we don't even try to  challenge it, or we challenge it / try, all the while telling ourselves we can't, and th…

Looking For Accountability?

The 3dots - Fitness App!  How many times have you set a goal for yourself only to find that within a few days or weeks you've all of a sudden found yourself faltering? Sometimes the hardest part of reaching your fitness and health goals is just finding a way to keep yourself accountable. When we are held accountable, our goals stay in the front of our minds instead of getting buried by other thoughts, responsibilities, and stresses.  I've learned this the hard way by trial and error, trying different goals, methods to reach them, and varying levels of intensity. But- I've always been most successful when I have someone or something to interact with, give me new ideas, and keep me on track.  This is why everyone who wants extra motivation, accountability, and fun loves the 3dots - Fitness app!  So how does the app work? There are challenges to choose from each day related to healthy food, exercise, and mindset. Once you choose a challenge, you have 24 hours to complete it.
