Being Prepared For Your Workout is a Plus

Updated: Oct 26, 2022

I woke up in the morning, tossed my legs off the side of the bed and stood up to stretch. I peeked at the clock and saw that it was 5am. I have always been thankful for the blessing of a new day, so I started my saying my thanks to God as I began moving. I walked into my closet to grab some workout clothes for the morning. I reached into one draw to find some shorts, another for a shirt, another for socks, and another for underwear.

By all means getting up and working out at 5:40am is a good thing, but why did it take me 40 minutes to get started? Sometimes that extra time is just enough for our minds to get crowded with excuses of why we could just skip today. About 30 minutes after waking up many times our minds have already shifted to work and parent and spousal duties. Extra time can kill your workout goals. Has this ever happened to you? Has a delay in your workout turned into no workout at all?

I made some changes to my routine and it has really helped me maximize my time. Now I match my workout clothes and put them away as a set. Every night before I go to bed I take that set out and put it next to my bed with the matching sneakers. I write my workouts a week in advance in a notebook. I am in the garage by 5:15 and done with my workout by about 5:50. I have saved myself 25 minutes of wasted time by making these changes, more importantly I have reduced the risk of losing motivation or allowing excuses to pop up to keep me from earning my sweat.

What are some things you can do in advance to help the next workout go smoother?
