I set my phone/alarm by my light switch. When my alarm goes off, I turn the light on and fan off. Then I lay back in bed while I stretch and allow my body to wake up. I've made it to all my morning workouts and this routine hasn't failed me. Good LUCK!

I'm not sure where I read this, possibly Women's Health or Sparkpeople, but I thought I'd share because it really helped me get out of bed this morning. Once you're in bed for the night, about to fall asleep, visualize getting up in the morning, putting on your workout clothes and your normal routine, driving to the gym, putting on your running shoes, and working out. I did this last night and hopped right out of bed this morning!
If you have trouble getting up in the morning sleep in your workout clothes so all you have to do is roll out of bed and hit it. Or put your clothes right next to your bed so you at least step on them on your way out of bed :)
Everyone has their own workout times, but this helps me: In the morning, I get out of bed and put my workout clothes on immediately and get my workout done right away, it really does get me started on my day. If I workout in the evening, I walk in the door and go change immediately and workout. If I sit down or do anything else, I'm less likely to workout. So, for me, morning or evening doesn't matter, making it the happen as soon as possible is what pushes me. 189
