TIME OPTIONS FOR EXERCISES TO LOSE WEIGHT: FIRST THING IN THE MORNING
For many individuals, if exercise doesn't take place first thing in the morning, it's not going to happen. Why? For a lot of people, early morning is the only option because of their schedule. For working men and women, if they exercise at, say, 6:00 or 6:30 A.M., they can get dressed and be at their jobs by 8:00 or 8:30, depending on commute time. This option provides a great advantage. One only needs to shower and get dressed once each day, which saves considerable time, especially in comparison to exercising later in the day, when you most likely will change and shower a second time. For stay-at-home parents, morning may also be the time when the kids are still sleeping, which enables the parents to concentrate and exercise without distraction.
Numerous case studies also indicate that those who plan to exercise first thing in the morning have the greatest likelihood of following through. That's because later in the day, situations can arise that many times will prevent you from exercising. These situations place demands on your time and can make you feel guilty about allocating time for yourself. So think about it - does first thing in the morning make sense for you? Try it. You may be surprised to find that the early-morning boost really gets both your physical and your mental juices flowing.
