I find it hard to exercise in the morning and find it much more enjoyable in the evening. As 1Dwing said it is still more important that you exercise and eat at a deficit than when you exercise.
Read up on intermittent fasting. The people that follow it love it and I have done a modified IF and will do again when I cut in January.

Whatever you do today make sure it is important because you are trading a day of your life for it.
