The only time I have to work out is very early in the morning -- before the kids wake up, the nanny arrives and it's time to go to work. As I run on the treadmill I watch the sun rise, plan my day and enjoy a bit of serene quiet alone time.

I get up so early (5:30 am) that getting up even early during the work week seemed daunting. So, my five days starts on Saturday mornings! So two early mornings aren't really all that early. On the weekends, I can sleep in until 7 am and still get a good morning workout in. Once I started this...the exercise excuses disappeared! 401
Get a great start on the day by working out in the morning! I'm not a morning person but after 6 weeks of pushing myself to get up an hour earlier than I normally would, getting to the gym and having a great workout, I find myself waking up early and wanting to get to the gym. It makes me feel good throughout the day, I'm burning fat calories faster and I don't have to worry about things coming up in the afternoon that will interfere with my workout time. 244
