My alarm clock...

Every morning, my alarm clock goes off at 5AM.
Every morning, I groan and contemplate rolling back over and sleeping for another 45 minutes.
Every morning, except for that one, I drag my butt out of bed and go workout.

I have a workout buddy this year. My bestie and I are holding each other accountable to working out five mornings a week. It's working for me. My bestie and I are both ultra-competitive and therefore we both hate the idea of writing the dreaded "I didn't work out this morning" email.

Pinterest is a great source for a little motivation too. I was thinking how effective it would be if instead of the annoying beeping that my cell phone blasts at me each morning, if it flashed one of these babies on the screen {yeh, I'd probably still need that annoying beeping too}, but wouldn't that help get you out of bed?!?

I always regret when I decide to skip my morning workout...this would help me remember that!

This is what my bestie posted to my wall on the morning I decided to skip : )

And this one, well it just wins...it's the one I need flashed in my face every morning!
Thanks Lori : )

Well for now I'll just have to print that last one out and tape it to my night stand, but here's to all of you ladies dragging your butts out of bed in the morning or to the gym after work!
