So many of my friends have asked how I get up and hit the gym before work. My secret weapon is my go bag!
Every night I pack my gym bag for the next morning so I can just grab and go! I even pick out my workout outfit and put it on the bathroom counter so I can get dressed and throw my hair in a pony tail lightening fast.
I have a BIG gym bag that holds everything I need to get ready for work after the gym. I buy doubles of my toiletries so I can leave the in the bag. My hair dryer and makeup stays in the bag all week during the workweek.
So what’s all in there?
- Hair dryer
- Bath towel
- Work clothes & shoes
- Flip flops for the locker room
- Lock to keep everything safe
- Shampoo & conditioner
- Face wash
- Heat protectant
- Body spray
- Face wipes
- Hair tie
- Workout clothes & shoes to put on the bathroom counter for morning
Once it’s all in the bag…it is as big as our 100 pound puppy!
On Monday’s I pack a smaller bag that also has a change of clothes for walking during lunch along with an additional pair of tennis shoes I can leave in my office. Behind my office door is a jacket I can put on for walking at lunch as well.
Every Monday I pack groceries to fill my mini fridge at work for the week. I also meal plan so I can grab a lunch each morning along with a protein shake or bar to have breakfast on the way to the gym.
The preplanning and packing helps me stay on track for working out! I hope these ideas help you as well!
