I should exercise in the morning, because I fall into the trap of waiting until the afternoon, and many times I'm in pain by then (I have a musculo-skeletal disorder). But I keep hoping that my husband will exercise with me and I know he doesn't like to do it right away.
My goal for this week is to have all my exercise done by 3p.m. so I know I get it done!

What a great idea, Lise! I've been trying to work out in the afternoons, and it's usually my husband who says, "Let's go to the gym." Yesterday we had to work out in the morning because of other commitments and, though I am not a morning person, it really is nice to have that out of the way. I need to think about doing it your way...
Oh yes, I get that feeling all of the time. However, what works for me is that I put out my exercise clothing out and that is usually the first thing I see in the morning. I do not have much choice but to get into them.

Do you ever get the blues and just want to return to the cocoon of your bed? I do. Sometimes I realize I'm telling myself, I'm tired, I'm hot,I just don't feel like going for a walk, putting on the DVD, lifting the weights. Mostly, lately, I overcome the resistance but sometimes I'm doing my morning exercise just before bed. I sure would like to change this tendency to delay. Do you have a particular "self-talk" script that you give yourself to go ahead and workout? How do you get to it when you feel lazy or just have the blues?
