I usually exercise after work, and although I don't enjoy it and sometimes dread it all day long, I've generally been successful in keeping a steady schedule.
This week, however, I am trying something different.
I'm exercising during my lunch hour.
Today was the first day to try out this new schedule, and I gotta say, I already love it. I eat lunch at work, head to Curves, get in my 30 minute work-out, head home to take a quick shower, then back to work, all in the space of my lunch hour.
Not only have I felt more awake this afternoon, but I also can head straight home from the office. No detouring to the gym and losing a precious hour of downtime, and no coming up with a million excuses not to go work out.
We'll see how the experiment goes in the coming weeks. But I think I've hit upon a winner.
