My husband has recently set a goal to lose 40 lbs. He would like to lose at least 25 lbs in the next 3 months. That's good news for me and my weight loss journey, because it means it will be easier to eat healthy if it's something that everyone wants anyway (we're lucky and Elliott loves fruit and most veggies). It also means that we can work on motivating each other to work out, stay on top of healthy eating, etc. My sister would also like to lose some weight, but her motivation isn't as strong right now, but she's willing to go along with the healthy eating and everything.
So now that my sister lives with us and works an evening shift, I'll be heading out early in the morning to go to the gym with my husband twice a week. We need to be on base by 545, so that I can work out for almost an hour and still get home in time to get Elliott ready for school. That means I'll have to be up and out the door almost 2 hours earlier than I usually get up, so I'll have to get in bed earlier. I think I can make that work, though. My son is in bed by 730 every night, and most nights my husband is in bed by 930. My sister doesn't get off work until 10, and I've been hanging out with her until after midnight, but I'm sure she'll be ok if I go to bed earlier (so I can be up by 445).
In fact, I think that what will probably work the best for my exercise routine is if I go ahead and get up with my husband EVERY morning and work out at home after he heads out to do his exercise class twice a week. Then I'll get 4-5 work outs in every week, and won't have to worry about when to squeeze them in. It will also give me some time to get some stuff done online in the morning. Even though I don't really consider myself to be a morning person, I have to admit that I'm usually more productive in the morning. Hopefully I'll even find more time to blog this way. :)
