5 P’s







Hi Team Dragon Fit!

Have you heard of the The 5 P’s?  It stand for: PROPER PLANNING PREVENTS POOR PERFORMANCE! As many of you know, I recommend doing morning workouts if you can. Getting it done first thing in the morning helps avoid all those problems of letting “life” get in the way throughout the day

It was not was not easy for me to get in the routine of waking up at 5am to push play everyday. Especially, I tend to be a night owl and always seem to get a second wind when I finally get my last child to fall asleep.  You know how it goes.  You start reading or watching a movie, etc. and before you know it, it is already midnight!  Ouch!  Now getting up the next day at 5am seems so much harder.

Then, the snooze alarm goes off multiple times.   You drag yourself out of bed. You go digging for your workout clothes, socks, and shoes.  You get your DVD out and start setting it up. You pour yourself a glass of water.  You search for the proper workout sheet and pen.  You start putting your weights and pull up bars in place.  Whew!  Now your tired again and want to go back to bed. I’ve been there MANY times when I first started on my fitness journey.

If you want to commit to getting your workouts done first thing in the morning, I have learned a little trick. The key is to get all your things ready the night before so you don’t go fumbling around the next day looking for them.  To avoid this, I make sure all my workout stuff is ready to go before going to bed. In that way, the alarm goes off and I am starting to hit play in the next few minutes and not the next half hour.

Do your best to make your life easier and not harder.  If you do, you’ll find out that morning workouts are a real pleasure and not so stressful.

Here’s to your health! Keep “bringing it”!
