Thanks for your comment on my blog! We all have to find what works for us and our body rhythms, and that's what's important, isn't it? Glad you have found a routine that works for you! I never thought I'd be a morning workout kinda gal, but once I got past the first few days i found it really helps me be more energized all day long. I'll work out in the evening when I need to, but my body responds much better to doing it in the morning. Have a great day!
