    I wake up at 5:15am in the morning and help get my husband ready for work (coffee, make his lunch, etc.) Normally, I climb back into bed and wake up at 6:45am or 7:00am. But this morning, I stayed awake and walked two miles. Starting my day with exercise made me feel great! emoticon - by CDPNMIA
