...at 5am to make sure I get up for my run.

Any takers? lol

DH got his staples out Thurs and has been having stomach issues ever since. I didn't get to run at all this weekend because I had Brynlee. So I really need to run in the mornings.

Do you get up early to have your own "me" time or do you sleep in as long as you possibly can?

Lol i would but that's 3am my time.

I sleep in as long as possible.

And for my walks everyday I just put Alex in the stroller. Otherwise I'd never get to exercise.

I like my exercise time to be my own, private alone time. Especially running.

Usually I can get up if I lay everything out the night before. Everything from bra, undies, socks to shoes, workout clothes, my Garmin watch, and anything else.

I'm also good about working out in the a.m. Before work if I don't shower the night before. Then I depend on waking up early enough to shower. Then if I wake up that early...I should go ahead and workout first.

But I've been sucky since DH's first surgery. As my sis said...I've been taking care of DH and BB and neglecting ME! it shows too...

Urgh, morning workouts, yuck! I would rather work out over my lunch break.

Good luck with getting up in the AM.

Good for you!

In general I sleep until one of my kids wakes up which is 6:40-7. There have been a few ocassions where they both slept in until about 8. I got out of bed, and enjoyed a cup of coffee on the porch alone. Beautiful.
As far as working out, I was doing pretty well getting up around 545 to go bike riding. I had to go early since one, I refuse to take my kids, & two, it was too hot to go later in the day. I do walk with them in the stroller, but like you, I enjoy going by myself too. I can listen to my iPod & not have to answer a million questions about everything.

I sleep in until either DH wakes me up or its my turn to get up with the kids. So Half the week I sleep until about 9:30 and the other half I get up at 7:45.

I love my sleep sooo much but I want to start doing something for me, I think I may start getting up at 6:30 and going for an hr walk. I always feel better when I get up early and exercise but I stay up way to late...which needs to change to I guess

Operation Get Up at 5am To Get Skinny: FAILED

DH was awake ALL night so every time he got up or moved, I woke up. I hate being a light sleeper. He woke up at 4:52. I checked the clock and was like OMG, I only have 8 minutes to sleep! So I slept until 5:45 then took a shower.

Boo on me. I even had all of my clothes and stuff laid out in the other room to get dressed.

Before Brynlee, I always worked out as soon as I got off work at 3:30. So about 4 every day. It was peaceful, I got it out of the way, and could relax in the evening. With our old sitter, I had to pick BB up by 5:00 and the gym is near her house. So I would go there straight after work. Unfortunately, my new daycare has stricter rules about pickup time and I don't want to backtrack to go pick her up if I went to the gym anyway.

I cancelled my gym membership since we are really tight on money and have been living on my income for a while.

Oh yuck.... 5am.

I sleep as much as possible. I take my me time in the evenings. Then I go for my walks.

Oh, and this morning I totally could have called if I had seen this! I just happened to be up at 4:45 for some random reason and didn't get back to sleep until 5:30.

I don't think I could form a complete sentence at 5 am. I would NEVER wake up any earlier than I have to. Everything can get done after work or the weekends, or it doesn't get done lol

I have been slacking so much with working out in the evenings. DH is little to no help right now. So I work all day, pick up the baby, deal with her, make dinner, clean up dinner, bathe and put baby to bed, and then all I want to do is sit down. DH has been hogging the TV, too! I feel like I get no relax time until I get to work at 7am and can drink coffee while I read the news and catch up on JM, lol

I get up at 7, which is when the boys need to be up for school. I'm never lucky enough for Keelan to sleep through my alarm, though.
