The Early Bird Gets the Worm When It Comes to Exercise

Are you an early bird or a night owl? 

I'm definitely a night owl, but I think that might need to change. Why? Well, I was having dinner with a friend who recently lost 26 pounds and she commented that waking up early to exercise has become her new routine. I keep hearing from friends, that they must exercise in the morning, otherwise, they will begin work and daily chores and never find time to do it.

It completely makes sense. Our days are jammed packed from start to finish with a never ending to-do list.  It's easy to make excuses. But, I really want to stick with my weight loss motto, "No excuses" and start implementing a work out routine.

The Couch to 5k Program (C25K) is highly recommended. Although I have worked out a lot in the past, I have never been a runner. A couple of days ago, I joined a friend on day 3 of her C25K workout and it was actually pretty fun. I felt good at the end of the workout and curious to know if I could do the whole program.

At this point, I'm not 100% sure that running is my thing. However, one thing I know for sure it that everything is more fun when you have a friend to partner up with. That's why I decided to do another DietBet game this month. I've lost another pound, but I feel like I really need to step it up a notch in order to meet my 4% goal. So, as I ponder setting the alarm extra early to exercise, let me leave you with this article which also examines the question "When is the best time to do your workout?"

When you you exercise most often?  Where do you find the inspiration to stick with it? Do you get your kids involved in your workouts?
