AM cardio Motivation
I am one who has to stay in bed until the last minute and then shower and run out the door to work. How and what is your motivation for getting up and doing AM cardio..

The Brooke Burke poster I wake up too every morning. It sounds cheasy, but I'm starting to find motivational/badass quotes and putting them on my walls.

Morning cardio is a mutha phucker...... but you gotta do what you gotta do. I always tell myself that. And just to make sure I stay motivated to do it I leave out a pair of socks, my shoes, my heart rate monitor etc sitting right next to my bed so I am reminded when I first wake up it is time to get to business. I also like the ab motivation..... not having a 6 pack is enough to drive my to get up and work

Throughout school and even now, I've found it to be an ideal way, and maybe the only point in my day, where I multi-task. It's always served as a good way for me to get some reading done, whether it be for class or pleasure, and that killing of two birds with one stone serves as a prime motivation for me.
Other than that, there is certainly a solitary "few and proud" pride that comes with being one of the few that is accomplishing something worthwhile in their day when most have yet to do a thing.

I lay out my clothes and HR monitor cause one excuse I tell myself in the morning is that I'm trying to figure out what to wear for cardio (lame I know but being half asleep I believe myself) then fall back asleep half the days. Then I try to keep a visual of what my motivation is in my head, for example if you are motivated by a person put a picture of that person by your bed so you see it first thing in the morning.

A picture of my fat ass from two years ago. That and the fact I wake up early everyday makes it a lot easier.

you just gotta get through it a few times man then it will be habit. put your alarm across the room so when you have to get up to shut it off you are already out of bed and have your clothes sitting by yuor alarm. the results you will get will be well worth getting out of bed!
