Hi everyone, when do y'all work out? Is there an ideal time to exercise?

I read this on pinterest: 'work out first thing in the morning before your brain figures out what you're doing'. It works for me. The longer I wait to workout in the day, the more I have to talk myself into doing it. Also, schedule your sessions into your day if not first thing in the morning. That way you are more likely to stick with that time and schedule everything else around it so you have no excuses to not follow through. I hope this helps.

I don't work out until maybe 8 or 9th at night. I go to bed at 12am and have to get up at 6am to be at work at 7. Due to my schedule, I'm not planning on waking up at 4am to work out and get ready to go to work. Plus no sleep =less productive workout. What I do and gives me the best energy boost to really put my all in a workout, is after work, take a nap, drink a coffee wait an hour before a workout. My moto is, whatever works for you so that you can do the best workout is what you stick with.

Also I don't eat dinner before my workout, makes me want to throw up during the workout, plus I don't want to wait for my food to digest (that's more time for my mind to talk me out of working out) so I eat afterwards. I tend to eat so much healthier and choose healthier foods after workout, bc I just busted my ass to workout and I'm not going to eat something bad to prolong this process.
