beautifulbuffalo posted:
I sleep all night but wake up tired lately. I try to exercise early in the mnorning and I do but I have to fight to get out the door in the morning. Then I go and work out but not up to it. I use the treadmill for 45 min or the recumbent bike for 45 minutes. I sweat with both. I don't like the eliptical it hurts my leg.

I feel the same way BB. I just make myself move. Some of my issues are that I just don't sleep well but when I do that's all I want to do is sleep because I want to play catch up all the time. I have bought some all natural calming stress powder that you mix with water and drink it before bed and it's been helping me sleep a lot better. You maybe sleeping but you may not be getting the REM sleep you need. You can try some sleepy time tea or put some lavender and hops in a mesh pillow. You can find all sort of natural ways to help with sleep.

No matter how tired I am I still put in an hour of exercise every morning. I do the recumbent bike for 30 minutes then the treadmill for 30 minutes on an incline. It gets me going. But then I'm exhausted at night but can't sleep when I want to. But we keep pluggin away.

BB, I've pretty much stopped the eliptical. I only do that when I feel I need that particularly grueling punishment. Now I stick to the recumbant and the pool exercises.
I'm not a morning person. I never have been a morning person. I'm L A Z Y like a K I T T Y in the morning. lol
I do my am walk but that's all I can face. I cannot imagine going to the gym till early afternoon when my blood feels less like sludge.

It doesn't matter WHEN you do it, just that it gets done.
