Why is it so difficult to start a healthier lifestyle? I'm trying to count my calories to help me determine how much I am eating. During the week it is ok, at work it is easier to make sure that I am eating right. Unless of course someone brings in snacks and then the temptation of food is strong. I have every intention of working out, but after dealing with kids when I get home, cooking supper, cleaning up, I'm exhausted and just want to go to bed, forget working out. Getting up early in the morning seems my only option, but how does a non morning person get the motiviation to get up and work out?

    Nice fox.
Before you go to bed, knee, find your center, find your higher power or God, if you like, just breathe, take a break from a life of no time and no power, and go to a God of no time and all power. A God, who through prayer and meditation, praise and worship, can give you the desires of your heart. He can give you vision and strength to carry it out. Spiritual strength is the most important ingredient in physical and mental health. Then, lay on your back and give a few crunches, feet on the bed. Work your core, strengthen your abs and your neck. Breathe deep. Rest. Repeat. Take one aspirin, and call me in the morning. Now, go to bed. Sweet dreams. emoticon

    I know early is kinda hard, but it does become easier as you go.

    You roll out of bed! It can be very hard to wake up in the morning, especially early to work out! Find something that REALLY motivates you to help you start the habit. Maybe put a dollar into your clothes fund or something like that. Good luck!
