This time of year it's hard even for experienced morning people to rise and shine, so don't beat yourself up.
When I was learning to be a morning person (like you, from necessity--I'm a natural night owl), I found consistency helped the most--sleeping late on weekends undid the good of waking early during the week. Even on days when I had no a.m. workout scheduled, I rose at the same early hour. That let my body become accustomed to early as 'normal.' Now, it IS normal, and even on black days I get up. But, like any new habit,it takes time to grow.
Coach Nicole posted once that she sleeps in as much of her workout gear as is consistent with sleep so she has less to do before she goes out early--and doesn't have to get cold, either, I suppose. That sounded practical, but weird.
