ok, finding i have a very limited time in the morning-- but there is NO way I can get up any earlier. Suggestions on how to improve my morning rituals, so that I have some wiggle-room/ time to relax? does anyone shave in the shower, and does it actually save you time? as it is, i have very little time to enjoy a cup of coffee or have more than a breakfast bar. 0500 wake up, put on gymclothes and shoes, quickly mix N.O. Xplode drink and get to elevator down to the building gym. 0510 by this time, I'm at the gym and starting the workout. I do a concentrated abs workout I took from a mens health a while back, one bodypart workout (chest one day, biceps the next, back another day, etc.) and between 15 and 18 minutes of cardio on a machine (20 would be even better). I figure i really need to burn over 200 calories to be worthwhile. 0610 by this time, I am back at the apt and am forced to help walk the dogs. Takes at least 15 minutes. 0635 in the shower, shave, get dressed. 0710 or 0715 I need to be getting out the door to make the drive to work.
