Morning Workouts Make Me Sick

As you may know, I'm working on one goal per week for the month of May. My goal for this week is to workout at least three times. I am planning on going to Jazzercise class tonight (at 4:30 p.m.); on Tuesday (at 5:45 p.m.), and; on Thursday (at 5:45 p.m.).

Evening workouts are my jam! A couple weeks ago, I tried a morning workout and it made me really sick. This was the second morning workout that I tried this year and both times I ended up feeling sick the entire rest of the day. Does this happen to anyone else? 

Whenever I work out in the mornings, I get a burst of energy for about an hour or two after the workout, beyond that, I feel extremely lethargic the rest of the day. I'm not sure what it is about morning workouts. They just make me sick!

I've also noticed that when I workout in the evenings, I burn more calories (probably because I'm more awake). Just like the morning workouts, the evening workouts give me a burst of energy for a couple hours and then I get tired, which is perfect timing since it's usually time for bed!

This week, I'm going to try to workout with my sister and/or a friend. It's more motivation to actually get out to my workout when I'm meeting a friend there and also, working out with a friend makes me work a little harder. Bonus: we usually burn more calories laughing the whole time, too!


  1. I experience the EXACT same thing!

  2. I'm the opposite! I usually don't have the energy to work out in the evening but sometimes I have to because of work. I definitely prefer morning workouts though.
