5AM!  I usually shower in the mornings and take my dog for a long walk so I am out the door by 6ish.  It takes me 25 min to get to work!

I’m so baffled by those of you who get ready, prep dinner, linger over breakfast, take the dog for a walk and do all of that in an hour! HOW?! If I wanted to do all of that (and I should…) I’d have to be up at 6am to leave at 8:10.

I wake up at 5:30am to start work at 8am and commute about 30 minutes, but make sure I leave by 7:15am. It’s worth noting that my husband leaves for work before I even get up so I also have to walk the dog and stuff before I leave too. 😛

ladybug55078 :  I work from home and I’m also pretty lazy, so… I get up at 8am, make myself some breakfast, and start working while I eat about 8:30 or so. It’s okay to hate me lol

You Ladies are crazy!! I wake up at 7am and then leave no later then 7:20. My commute can be anywhere between 25 and 40 minutes, depending on traffic, and I have to be at work by 8am. I always shower and pick out my clothes the night before, as well as do most of my hair (straighten, set curls to be ready for the morning, etc). Can you tell I’m not a morning person?!

Alarm starts going off at 4:45 and goes off every 5 minutes. Luckily my BF can’t hear it at all

Actually get up between 5:30 and 5:45 

Out the door between 6 and 6:15 to get to work at 7ish. I’ll leave work at 4, I’m in marketing and my boss didn’t care what time I came in, so this works out well and I miss most of the major traffic.

I pack my breakfast and lunch, shower, and lay out my clothes the night before.  All I have to do in the morning is make coffee and wake the dog up(which is harder than you think). I hardly ever wear makeup and if I do its usually for a meeting and I don’t have to be there until 8 or 9.

Depends on a few factors eg if I’ve showered the night before (tends to be my preference as I hate getting up in the morning lol), how busy my day is likely to be (in which case  I like to factor in time to ‘wake up’), etc. Generally though anything from 40 minutes to 1.5 hours before I start. I live a 10 minute walk away. 

My start time also varies; can be anything from 7am to 9am.

I get up at 5:45 am, leave the house at 7 am and I am at work by 7:30 am…only about a 20 minute commute.

I get up at 5:30.  I like to give myself a lot of time to have tea and breakfast and then shower.  I shower around 6:15, leave at 7. My commute is about 30 minutes, get to work at 7:30. 🙂

Luckily my job is flexible where you can get in later, but I’d rather just get in early and get off at 3:30 most days to be honest. 🙂
