    When I get my exercise in the morning, the day goes so much better. Now, it's dark when I get up and dreary so I wait until it's at least a little light outside to go.

    When I walk in the morning I always have more energy for the day.

    I haven't been feeling well (one of those colds that's going around) and need to do a lot of stuff around the house today. I just read this. After I finish my Spark bookkeeping I will throw on some outdoor clothes and go to a nearby state park for a walk. (I also read on FB that Michael Moore has been doing this for 30 minutes a day.) Thank you!!!!

    This is when I'm in my zone. I start my day right by getting up and working out.

    emoticon A brisk walk morning, noon or night gets me going & clears my head!
JDFAN448HS 1/13/2013 4:46:00 PM

    Agreed!....only after my coffee cup is empty!!
GINGERVISTA 1/13/2013 3:24:00 PM

    That's why on days I work, I feel great walking the 1.5 miles. Live in midwest & so far the weather hasn't prevented me from walking: long underwear, down coat, far, so good! Take change of clothes for work & it's terrific after having gotten exercise (1/2 hour) & enjoyed the outdoors as well. emoticon

    Any exercise first thing awesome!

    i get up at 5 to get ready for work so getting up earlier is not possible. So I make sure that is what I do first when I get home before getting started on anything else!
EKILG218 1/2/2011 11:55:00 PM

    I totally agree!!!! And the cold weather will really get you going out there too! LOL

    Yes of course. But I cannot get up very early for that, so I make up in the evenings.
