When do you work out? Morning, afternoon, evening?

And what do you do for your workout?

I work out mostly late afternoon (between 4:30 and  6:30), but some days -I do morning classes (mostly Saturday and some Weednesdays)  If I work out at home then  late morning/ early afternoon- 1 day a weeks usually so it's all over the place I guess!

I do zumba mostly, but also pilates, piyo, I have a weight machine, treadmill, bands and a small ball  at home that I use here and there and also belly dance either with Dvd's or in classes when I can find them

I work out late in the evening between 8pm-10pm.... I work full time so it's the only free time I get.  After dinner though so I have to be careful on what I eat or else I'll get an upset stomach.

Right now I'm doing Turbo Fire and I love it!  I'm almost 4months in, but last week I started concentrating more on toning and lifting.  So after my cardio I do about an 1/2 an hour to an hour of strength training.

In an ideal world, I work out every morning.

Reality?  I'm in school, and I have to be flexible around class, clinicals, DS's school schedule, and DH's pain/stomach issues.  So here's what my week often looks like:

Monday: mid-day workout after lecture (I get out at 10), may start swimming since the campus pool has hours 12-2.  I like to run, hit the campus gym, or go trail running if I'm lucky.  Then I shower on campus at the gym and go study until DS gets out of school.

Tuesday: try to run after I take DS to school and before my class at 11, but I usually take that time to study for that class.  After lecture (out at 2:30), I will run, hit the campus gym or go for a bike ride and try to shower before I pick up DS.  Or I'll get up early and do a DVD or run before I take DS to school.

Wednesday: I need a run after 6 hours of lecture!  SANITY, please!  LOL  Or I'll hit the campus gym, or treat myself with a trail run (this is my most likely day for a trail run).

Thursday & Friday: depending on my clinical schedule (varies a lot), I'll do a short run (when clinicals start before 7AM), or the way things are right now, where I am going in later, I'll run then hit the pool.  I'd try to get in a trail run, but there's nowhere to shower before clinicals.

Weekends: usually a run or swim, maybe a bike ride.

I'll use my DVDs as needed, and same with the treadmill.  I'll also study on the treadmill if I don't have to write stuff out- I do a lot of reading in nursing school, so the TM allows me to read and walk, which is better than sitting!

I workout whenever I have the time. Sometimes it's at 4 in the morning other times it's at 10 at night. Today I worked out at 4:30 a.m. and again at 12:00 p.m. I've been doing videos, running, using the stationary bike and dancing mostly. I should be getting a gym membership again soon.

I work out in the morning 3 times a week with a Jillian Michaels dvd and zumba at night twice a week.

I like to workout in the am. I also do classes (like zumba or kickboxing), cardio and weight training.
