Okay - well, I've been wanting to switch my morning routine to include going to the gym and I did it this morning!
Last night, I enlisted the help of my family. I asked them to remind me to put my breakfast and lunch together to take with me this morning as well as get out my clothes for work. Then I made sure my gym bag was all packed. When I got up, at the usual time, I threw on my gym clothes, put my work clothes in my gym bag, grabbed my prepared meals, and headed out the door. I have to drive kids from early-morning Bible study to school - I got there, picked the kids up, dropped them off and headed to the gym.
I got to the gym and threw my stuff in a locker and then went and did 10 minutes of leg exercises on the weight machines for strength building. This is something my rheumatologist has recommended since I have some mild osteopenia. I know it isn't much, but it's more than I've been doing and I feel good. I even got to work earlier than I usually do after showering and changing at the gym.
So, as long as I remember to get everything ready the night before, it looks like this just might work out! I am psyched.
