You wouldn't be wasting your time. Taking time to improve your health is never a waste.

I have yet to meet the parents of a newborn who weren't chronically sleep deprived or exhausted. So, don't beat yourself up because you don't feel motivated to workout in the morning.

One thing you might try is working out at a different time of day. No one says you have to workout in the morning. You could take a walk at lunch. You could do a DVD in the evening. Just have your hubby look after the little one while you do. If you don't have time to do a long workout, then do a short workout. Coach Nicole has a bunch of short 10-15 minute workouts posted in the fitness section. try a couple. You can break your workouts up into shorter segments AND still get all the health benefits. three 10 minute walks spaced out through the day still adds up to a 30 minute walk.

Every little bit really does add up.

From experience, not doing anything is a waste of time. Maybe you should get to the bottom of why you feel unable to get out of bed to do your workouts...better yet, maybe do them at a later time if you're simply not a morning person?

Don't ever let anyone else tell you who you can be

Absolutely NOT wasting your time... keep trying, sooner or later things will work out... things will get easier... you will succeed. :)

Perhaps you should talk to your doctor about how you are feeling. What you are describing sound like symptoms of depression, which can happen as after childbirth. You need to be well and healthy to take care of that beautiful new baby of yours.
