I apologize for the back to back posts--for some reason BFL has had trouble with my account for the last week, so these questions have been building up and I haven't been able to post them!
In any event...my schedule doesn't really provide for morning workouts. I know how and why morning cardio is more beneficial. What I DON'T know is if it is the difference between getting results and NOT getting results. If I always do my cardio in the evenings am I destined to not reach my goals??
No ma'am just remember to try and do it 3 hours after a meal for better results but it's not required.
Love you some you...PERSEVERE!
I started body for life by working out in the mornings. I switched my schedule to afternoons so that i can workout with my wife. I have not seen any bad results from this change. I take a myoplex lite shake an hour before the workout and then a meal an after i finish my workout.
Hey there Alison!
I completed challenge 1 last week. My lifestyle prevents me from morning workouts. On occasion I was able to get a morning cardio in...rarely. I did 97% of my workouts and cardio after 10pm at night. I would structure my meal plan so that I was as fasted as I could get for that event. I would wait 30 minutes after weight training, and 1 hour after cardio to grab a carb control shake or cottage cheese and then a yogurt or apple and eat that before retiring for the evening.
I felt guilty about that for about the first 1-2 weeks. Accepted that I needed a structured time of the day where LIFE would not get in the way. Stuck to it. Worked for me.
I do not feel that my results were affected. I HIIT it hard. I do wish I could have done them earlier in the way, but, I did what worked for me.
My 10 week progress photo is posted on the media gallery. That will give you an idea of what that did for me. I am definitely pleased with the method I used.
Take away the guilt and do what works for you. You will see amazing results! Git'r dun!
Keep the faith!

Go look at Renee's pics on transformation.com. She has her 8 week pics up, and she rocked this challenge. Can't wait to see the 12 week pics, Renee!! Awesome job.

count me in with the rest of you who don't do the morning workouts. i have three enormous dogs and i walk them in the mornings before work. of course that is sort of a workout in itself.
i just feel stronger in the evenings. and am able to focus more on my workouts because i'm not worried about running late for work.
I was wondering the same, I can only workout in evenings, at least during work week. Glad to see it didnt hold anyone back.
