This Sparked Me!

I have found that when I exercise first thing in the morning and eat a sensible breakfast, my eating choices are better all day long are much better. I eat slower and get full faster. I also stay fuller longer.

    Thanks for sharing,,, I try to exercise in the morning, but it does always work out that way.

    I know it makes sense, and our usual late morning session at the gym does mess up the day. Must try harder, though it's a 20 mile round trip. Now the cooler weather is coming, back to exercising daily at home, though, so I must set the alarm for earlier.

    So true.

    Mornings are absolutely the best time for me to. It sets the order for the rest of the day!

    Morning exercises are best for me. I wake at 4.30 a.m. every morning and do my walking and my other exercises.

    Must do it in the morning otherwise I just never get to it.

    The morning exercise is much better for me because if I wait until later sometimes I get lazy. So I get out there in the morning.

    I am too lazy to get up in the morning and try to work out... it is my goal that tomorrow I will wake up early to do some yoga. I always eat a healthy breakfast tho emoticon

    I have been going to a gym that I can never find a machine to get on till after 2 pm.
I am going to quit that gym and starting today going to just save gas and money and do spark videos and keep building my own home gym. I would like to take a yoga class some day though too.

    Morning works the best for me too. I find that it is easy to come up with excuses if I leave it for the evening...I am tired after day's work, I am hungry, not enough time, socializing, etc., etc. I have a luxury of flex time at work and a nice gym facility in the building where I live...So no excuse of not having enough time in the morning...and my mind can't think of any other I am able to stick to morning exercise routine...and starting a day with a positive feeling of achievement adds to my confidence at work...all in all it is a positive cycle...

    emoticon Then if I can sneak in a few minute,s later in the day it's a bonus!
VAINVT 12/18/2013 7:21:00 AM

    Things happen as the day progresses, so it is much better for me to exercise in the AM
LUVSBULLDOGS 4/21/2010 4:54:00 PM

    Morning exercise works the best for me, too.
JLEMUS1 4/21/2010 4:23:00 PM

    That is so true if I don't exercise in the morning it's like I'm dragging all day
