I tried the 5:45 AM yoga class this morning.
Let me preface this story by saying that (like most normal human beings and grad school students) I love sleep. I avoid waking up early at all costs. The several times in the past I have tried working out in the morning have been a failure. I hate my life each second I'm working out because I know I could be using that time to sleep. I hate waking up even a second earlier than the last possible moment I can wake up to get where I'm going.
That being said...
This class was wonderful. It was a beautiful thing. I stretched, I breathed, I didn't think once about wanting to sleep. I felt relaxed yet energized by the end of the class. I had a better morning and, I believe, a better day because I went. I didn't have to feel guilty this evening for not wanting to workout (because hey! ... I already did).
I hate waking up early.
But from now until further notice I will be waking up at 5:20 AM each Monday and Wednesday and sweating my nonexistent cojones off. Because I don't want nonexistent cojones (does anybody, really?). And because sweating, stretching, strength, and movement = weight loss.
And because I want to do what's right for my body.
