Till this day whenever I hear the word “Challenge” I think of this scene from the Cosby Show, where Bill Cosby and Mr. Sandman have a tap battle

“CHALLENGE!!!!” nothing beats classic 80’s shows….

So what exactly is this post about? I have been struggling with morning workouts lately which is so unlike me. The old Mari could wake up with no problem and have a great workout but lately all I want to do is sleep until the very last moment that I NEED to get up for work. I have been able to workout through out the day but I miss how great I feel when I have a morning workout. So with that said…I am going to have a morning workout challenge in February!

My goal is to workout at least for 45 minutes in the morning, EVERY day in February. It can be any sort of workout, including Yoga, Cardio, Strength Training etc. (the only exception is when I train clients 7 am or earlier).

In theory it takes 21 day to make something a habit...I have 29 days  (LEAP YEAR WOOHOO!)

Who wants to join me in my CHALLENGE! (insert sandman voice)



  1. I really should, but waking up at 5am when I go to sleep around 10pm would be mean of me to do to me (or something like that). I think you can do it, you are great at putting your mind to something and DOING IT. :)

  2. Good luck girl! I'm a dedicated afternoon worker-outer otherwise I'd totally join in!

  3. I know you'll do it Mari! Woot! I usually work out at lunch because I blog in the morning - how about I commit to 3 times a week??

  4. Go for it! My February is so jam packed that I definitely can add workouts in the morning, but I usually head to the gym 5 days a week right around noon.

  5. I remember your morning workouts- you were a diva and rocked them every time. Hope they are going well girl. And I miss you =)

  6. You have inspired me to consider running Mari!!
    Only a consider at this stage, but its better than a straight NO.


  7. I never knew it only takes 21 days.. I'll get back to you in 22!
