Michelle Obama’s 5 A.M. Workout Regimen Makes Us All Look Bad

The iVillage guest editor told the publication that she gets up before five during the school-year to squeeze in a work out before preparing her two children for their school day.
“Barack and I work out every day,” the Let’s Move! anti-obesity campaigner said. “I usually get to the gym before he does. But he is usually there either in the middle of my workout or right at the end. And we’re watching ‘SportsCenter’ and we’re catching up. That’s why I know so much about sports…and you start having an opinion about [New York Jets quarterbacks Tim] Tebow and Mark Sanchez.”
She makes it look easy to wake up before most of the world and exercise, but the FLOTUS isn’t all work and no play. She enjoys junk food from time to time, and her weakness is a plate of fries:
“French fries [are my weakness], which is good because you can’t just have french fries around, so that’s helpful. But if there are french fries in the vicinity, I’m done. It’s over.”
With that early morning alarm clock bell, Obama deserves to indulge sometimes. If she can do it, I have no right to claim I’m too tired to visit New York Sports Club every evening after work.
