Morning Exercise


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I am a morning person. I get most of my exercise done early. Then if I have more time during the day, even just 10-15 minutes, I get in a bit more. It has been great for me.

I do CURVES 5 days. I walk at least 30 min. a day. I stretch 15-20 minutes a day and do a dance DVD 3 X a week.

    My best fitness days look just like this!
FRAN0426 12/30/2012 3:30:00 PM

    Wish I was an early riser, unfortuantely I'm not and more than likely never will be one. Now retired my body is still in working overnights---getting better but still mid morning riser. DH and I usually go to the gym late mornings or after lunch.
MARYHENNIG 12/30/2012 12:36:00 PM

    Wish I was a morning person, but my body does not wake up until noon, regardless of when I wake up. Have always found my most energy late at night.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I wish I was a morning person but unfortunately I am not...I do have a membership in a 24 hour gym but late at night when I get motivated...there is no one to go with me.

CHERYLSBUTT 7/10/2012 10:12:00 PM

    Me too!...I am a morning person and like to get it done like an appt. If I have a slow or normal day...there comes a time in the afternoon or evening that I do more....I am so surprised by how much I can actually log in my fitness tracker! Gogirl!!!
BOLEBRON 7/10/2012 8:39:00 PM

    I am not a morning person but from time to time I surprise myself with morning workouts and it is a great feeling to know that I am done for the day.

GINGERVISTA 7/10/2012 8:07:00 AM

    I can't believe 10-15 years ago I used to get up before sunrise with friends while we trained for a 2-day 100-mile bike ride! I have to get up at 6 many days for work & can't imagine getting up at 5 to exercise! Plus, I have to walk 4 miles to/from trains, least I get that in before I even get home.
REDROSEMARIE 7/10/2012 8:00:00 AM

    My preference is to exercise early afternoon, I never get the 3 o'clock energy drain
MILLEDGE2 7/10/2012 7:34:00 AM

    Thanks for reminding me why it's important to make time for this in the morning. I can tell that I'm sharper mentally the rest of the day!
MISSILENE 7/10/2012 6:35:00 AM
