Throw those curtains wide

That is a line from my new favorite song by a band called Elbow. The best album that has come out in the last 5 years in my opinion!

I've been singing that all morning trying to figure out how on earth I'm going to make myself be a 5am workout person. I know it probably becomes a habit after a while but I have never in my life been a morning person. I can barely open my eyes much less think about exercising. I WANT to be a morning person. I go to bed no later than 10 so I really have no excuse...except for the fact that I love sleep. I feel so great for the whole day after which should be motivation enough.

It's been a little easier since it's been just that much lighter outside and not so freezing cold. I actually beat the sunset coming home last night. It was the first day I've arrived home in daylight since the clocks went back and it was glorious. I can't wait for it to be light enough for me to participate in the evening dog walk. My husband gets home 2 hours before me and walks them every night without me in the winter.

I'm so happy another weekend is almost here. We have no obligations other than hanging out with each other and a dog birthday party on Sunday. I'm making some doggie appetizers (yeah I'm a dork but whatever) which I should really do more often since it's about the only thing I'm not tempted to eat...although there once was an an incident where both my husband and I thought a peanut butter dog biscuit looked and smelled delicious!


  1. A dog birthday party! How wicked is that haha! Not dorky at all .. fun!

    Oh I hear you .. it's all I can do to drag my butt to work on time, never mind working out! I get so jealous when I hear people saying "I am such a morning person" ... I pretty much wanna beat them up with an alarm clock haha

  2. Mornings are the bane of my existence. I know how you feel with the morning workouts, I just can't get the motivation to get out of bed at such a horrible hour.

  3. Hopefully as it gets lighter in the mornings, that will help you to be able to get up earlier. I'm hoping that will happen to me as well. :)

  4. I have always been a night owl, but the last few years I have consciously worked at getting to bed earlier and can now rise earlier. And I love it! I think eating only natural foods and not having any stimulants have helped a lot!
