Start your day this way; get up, stretch, get dressed (or at least put your sports bra on under your PJ's), have a snack (a slice of toast, a smoothie or some fruit) and hit the ground running! Exercise in the morning will boost your metabolism, help you work up an appetite for breakfast, and you will know that no matter how else your day goes, you started well with a healthy meal and a work out, which will energize and motivate you for the rest of the day!
Be SURE to eat your snack before working out, however; your sleepy body needs something obvious and easy to burn, or it will burn lean muscle during your workout; not good!

I know I have to leave about fifteen minutes earlier than if I drive, but I get in a quick mile and my daughter gets a quick half mile to get her brain going too! It saves gas (always a good) and we spend 15 minutes talking! Win, Win Win!
I am not a big fan of morning exercise, but this is so much fun, I keep doing it!
I find that if I develop a habit or routine I am better at keeping at exercise. I start each morning with Wii fit and I find that then even if the day gets away from me I have at least had my morning exercise.
