CNN --- A morning exercise routine is a healthy way to start your day, but making sure it happens all starts the night before.

The foods you eat in the evening will impact how you feel when you hit the gym. Go for lean protein, veggies and healthy fats, so you wake up feeling refreshed, not tired.

Force yourself to fall asleep early. It'll be easier to get out of bed in the morning if you've logged your expert recommended seven to eight hours.

Limit cell phone, computer and TV use before bedtime. Those devices emit blue light that can affect your sleep.

Find something to look forward to. It can be something as simple as a new playlist. Excitement is a powerful motivator and can help you get up during the morning hours.

Having a workout buddy can also help. Making plans to meet at the gym or a class will hold you accountable.

Finally, set up your morning ahead of time. Lay out your clothes and have a pot of coffee ready to brew. The less you have to think about when the alarm goes off, the better.
