The alarm went off a little later than usual this morning, and you know what? It still sucked. I'm a self-described morning person. I think more clearly in the morning than I do at night. In college when I needed to cram for a test, I preferred to go to bed before midnight, set the alarm for 3:00 or 4:00 AM and study in the early morning.
However, being awakened from a deep sleep, whether you're a morning person or not, is a terrible feeling. My alarm is usually set for 4:30 or 4:45 AM so I can workout before Chris and the kids leave for the day. I try to get to bed before !0:00 PM, but it doesn't always happen.
When people use the excuse that they can't find time to workout during the day or evening, and mornings won't work because... they're not a morning person, I find it difficult to generate much sympathy. Being awakened before your body naturally wants to get up, via a sick child, weird house noises, snoring partner, barking dog or the alarm clock... sucks. Always. I NEVER want to get up when the alarm screams at me. NEVER.
When my Toddler Child  is older and in school with his brothers, I will embrace the option to run, bike or swim... later [assuming I'm still a SAHM]. I plan to take advantage of an extra hour of sleep this summer, but I'll still need to have workouts completed before Chris leaves for work, and before the day gets too hot.
Just a forewarning...
If you say: I can't workout. There's no time.
Then I say: What about going for a 30-minute walk or jog in the morning? [before getting ready for work, or getting kids out of bed]
Then you say: Nah. I'm not a morning person.
...I just might smack you.
For you, my friend...
