If you read my blog last week you may have noticed that I planned a pilates workout one day and then skipped it. When I skipped the workout in the morning I promised myself that I would make up for it later and fit in an afternoon workout. I don’t know why I continue to promise myself things like that. Ninety percent of the time I don’t follow through.

It is really important to make the time for exercise when it works for you. If I don’t exercise in the morning it is really unlikely that I will do it at another time. By mid afternoon I’m tired. I’m at my peak in the morning, and I have the most energy. It’s just not in my nature to want to work out later in the day when my will power is exhausted.

It’s okay to skip a workout now and again, but planning a workout for when you know you will make the time is essential to staying on track. If I planned to exercise in the afternoon every day and didn’t get up early to exercise, I wouldn’t never move.
