I wish that I could, but because of a back injury it's all I can do to just get out of bed. I end up walking laps around an island until I can stand straight up with less pain. I guess that counts as exercise since it usually takes about 20 minutes.

Yes because I am out of work so this is best time for me. I do have to wait until my arthiritis is not too bad to start exercising though. I takes meds for it and some days it's worse then others.

I don't but I've decided I should try it because I'm letting myself off the hook when I get home and nothing is happening.

Over the last couple of years I've grown to really like working out first thing in the morning.
I get up and stumble around a little but within a couple of minutes I'm coherent enough to get through the exercises.

Lately, I have been. I workout out right after I make my kids their breakfast and then have breakfast after. Not today. My husband is on nights and hasn't gone to bed yet so I'm having breakfast and my tea first. Then I'll squeeze in a 10 minute cardio warm up and 25 minutes of the lvl 3 of the 30 DS. If I'm lucky I can started on my upper body before I have to take my son to the bus stop. Then come home and finish up the rest of my strength training routine.

I don't jump right out of bed and start exercising, but my workout is part of my morning routine before I have breakfast and get ready for work.

small staple in the morning to get my juices flowing and then off to the renovation to try and get things done. When hunger finally hits I will sit down with the wife and have a nice breakfast and a coffee or tea, then back to work. This will hold us until we are ready to have some late lunch. We tend to slow after lunch but still get ample work done.We clean up and have a nutritional supper then relax,

I'm not a morning person, but I exercise in the morning to wake me up and get myself motivated to make smart food choices throughout the day

If I don't exercise in the morning, it's very hard for me to do it later. So yes, I try to do it early.

I work from home, so I have my breakfast and then do my circuit workout a couple hours after. I don't like to exercise on either an empty stomach or with a belly full of food, so that's the best time for me.

I usually also take a short walk in the evening.

yes I try to do it first thing in the morning. It makes my day go much better and I won't be able to talk myself out of it if I get it done right away.

I exercise in the morning, not the first thing. I usually have a small muffin and a cup of coffee. I find I need a little snack to get me going.

No. I get up, take the dogs out, get the kids up and get them breakfast. Get them ready for school and on the buses. I either workout a couple hours after I get up or I wait until night time and do it once I get the kids in bed.

Yes. I find that if I don't, it's a lot harder to schedule. Just seems to work best to start the day with exercise.

Years ago, before I had our first daughter, I LOVED getting up early and hittin the gym before work! I'd get there at 6am, workout for an hour, shower, and be at work by 8. Now that's not possible so I workout in the evening. Starting tomorrow, though, I'm going to be able to workout mid-day :)

After I wake up and take my dog outside, I get on my elliptical for 10 minutes. It wakes me up and keeps me energized all day long.
