I’ll be honest. When the alarm goes off, I pretty much hate 5:00 AM. But I have to admit, 5:00 AM has been a very good thing for me. Three days a week now, that alarm goes off and I head out at 5:25 for my 5:30 Zumba toning class.
Here in Tiny Town, there is no exercise gym, but my cousin’s wife is teaching Zumba toning, so about seven of us gather in the wee hours to shake those weights. My body doesn’t like to move like that, but it wakes me up, gives me energy for the day, and helps melt away some of this post-baby squishy-ness. Love me some squishy babies, but notsomuch a squishy mama belly.
When I get home, I have time for a shower before the kids wake up, and sometimes I can even get a head start on the daily to-do.
Getting up early? Not fun. But getting up early? Yes, even that can be a Finer Thing. (Especially if I can score a nap later in the day!)
What Finer Things are you celebrating this week? Link up and let us know!
Anybody else getting up early with me? When do you get your exercise in?
