A Peek into my Mornings:

Luckily I’m a morning person, but that doesn’t mean I like to wake up early on the weekends. I do cherish my sleep. I set my alarm every morning except for the weekends to 4:50 am. It’s hard and the reason I set my alarm to 4:50 in the morning is  b/c it gives me 10 minutes to fight with myself. Yes I fight with myself about getting up, I just want to stay in my cozy bed. I’m out of my bed at 5 am and I then my day starts.

I go to the bathroom before I do anything. Once that is completed I head into the kitchen.  Every morning I take Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer before I start my workout. The Vega Pre-Workout Energizer gives me a boost to kick my butt during my workout. Sometimes I sleep in my workout clothes and sometimes I don’t, it just truly depends on how I’m feeling before I go to bed. Once my workouts are completed I sometimes take Vega Sport Accelerator.  The Vega Accelerator helps with recovery.  I make myself breakfast and pack my lunch for the day. Hop in the shower, get ready for work, and then I’m out the door for work.

There are mornings where I don’t want to get up each morning, but I get up. I was almost 260 pounds and now I’m at 221. Is exercising hard, yes I would be lying if I say no. My faith and seeing myself grow these past few months shows me that I can do anything I put my heart into.  Start out small and end your journey in a big way. I’m finding myself with morning energy and pushing myself to do new things. I have a race called Mudderella and Old Rag Mountain to do this fall.  Don’t Limit What YOU Can Do!!! Life is to precious to sit back do nothing. I want to LIVE and I’m Kicking Butt. I’m creating a NEW ME!!!
