I agree with KCBarbie...I am currently running early in the morning because I don't want to overheat my dog, who runs with me, but as soon as the weather cools off, I'll go back to my late afternoon/early evening workouts. My problem is that even if I sleep enough, exercise relaxes me SO much that as soon as I finish showering and eating breakfast, I can't keep my eyes open. When I exercise later in the day, I don't have this problem, and I never have trouble going to sleep because the exercise works out the stress from my day. I don't have trouble disciplining myself to exercise when I have planned it, though, and nutrition isn't a problem either, since I plan my food so that I am ready to exercise when it's time. Morning exercise just wouldn't work for me during the school year when I have to teach (and think!) in the morning. It really just isn't for everyone--but I'm happy for everyone that has found it to be the solution for them.
