Like her husband, Mrs. Obama puts exercise at the top of her morning to-do list. The first lady told Oprah that she wants her daughters to see her as a woman who takes care of herself, even if it means waking up at 4:30 a.m. to do it.
"I just started thinking, if I had to get up to go to work, I'd get up and go to work," Michelle said in an interview for O Magazine in 2009. "If I had to get up to take care of my kids, I'd get up to do that. But when it comes to yourself, then it's suddenly, 'Oh, I can't get up at 4:30 a.m.' So I had to change that. If I don't exercise, I won't feel good. I'll get depressed."
