I find mornings are bad and slowly stretch up. You know why? Because when dinner comes around, I'm too busy getting dinner on the table. The kids, my husband, I try to make a nice dinner every night. So if I worked out in the morning, I know that's my little time for myself to get in shape and I personally work out 30 minutes. Monday through Friday, you could happen. Healthy lifestyle habits.
