Nia at Nine

Posted by terrepruitt on June 13, 2011

Helloooooooooo.  I have my Monday morning San Jose Nia Class today at 9:00 am.  I am not a morning person, maybe you have figured that out from my posts.  By “morning person” I mean I don’t go bed by 10:00 pm and automatically wake up a 6:00 am or 7:00 am.  I CAN get up in the morning and I DO get up in the morning when I have a Nia class to teach.  I like to be up in enough time so that I can drink some coffee and review my routine.  I like to leave in time for me to get there fifteen minutes early.  So even though my Ten Minute Workout is only ten minutes I do not get up early enough to do it and all the other things I have to do.  I also don’t get up early enough to even turn on my computer. I am posting this after midnight before I go to bed.  I have made it a rule that I cannot turn on my computer in the morning on Mondays and Wednesdays because then I get caught up in doing work on it and I don’t get all that I have to get done before I have to leave to teach my 9 am Nia class.

On Fridays, my Los Gatos Nia class is late enough that I could get up and do my Ten Ten in Ten before, but at this point, by Friday my foot/toe is reminding me that it is still not 100% and so I “save” up my toe/foot for my class.  I want to give my Nia students 100% so I don’t do my workout before.  When my toe IS at 100% I will definitely do some exercising before my class because on Fridays I tend to get home in the afternoon and I have other things to do.  I end up not getting to the workout until way late.

Ha . . . all of this is really just a placeholder to allow you to check in and to tell you . . . . . . I WILL BE BACK!

Well, how is it going for you this Monday morning?

    Thank you for holding this space, I am back and done with my morning short 10 minute routine – it is helping my motivation to report in with you, this morning was especially hard to get up as the kids and I will probably be hanging out at home today. But one thing I know about me is if I don’t get up and immediately exercise, I will not do it! Now it is done, and I can move on about my day and feel good. Thanks!

    • You know what they say, “Have a workout buddy.” Or someone you are accountable too. It works for a lot of us. I think a lot of us have a better chance of exercising if we do it first thing. I know that I would be better off doing my workout in the morning, but on teaching days I need to save my “toe/foot”. 🙂 I was going to do my ten minutes right when I got home from Nia, BEFORE I drank the rest of my coffee and I forgot. Now I am wanting to finish my coffee before it gets too late. So I will finish my coffee, then check back in after I do my ten!

      WAHOO YOU!!!!! Thank you.
