I prefer to work out in the mornings, but that's also when I prefer to have my quiet times, since the kids aren't up yet. Here's a way to combine the two: LISTEN to scripture while working out. I play the audio files on my iPhone while I'm on the Elliptical, praying before/after while stretching/cooling down. This gives me the spiritual and physical charges I need each morning. No matter what the day holds, I know that I started it out right!
I checked out a set of the audio Bible CDs at our local Library, saved a copy of them in my iTunes account, transferred the books I wanted to focus on that month to my iPhone, plugged my headset in, hit play and get busy on the Elliptical.

It's hard, but I find that if I exercise in the morning I feel motivated to be healthy for the rest of the day. After a good morning workout I eat healthier all day, drink more water, and feel more energetic. If I wait until the evening, I snack during the day and think to myself 'I'll make it up later tonight when I workout'. Then I'm too tired and discouraged by the time workout time comes around.
