Pack your gym bag the night before so there's no excuses!
I have two sets of hygiene products-one for home, one for the gym so I don't have to worry about packing that. I also have a quick-drying microfiber towel in my bag so it dries in the gym bag before the next day's shower. Having my bag packed means all I have to do is grab and go!
I have to get up to go to the gym at 5:30am. The only way I get there is by packing my gym bag the night before. That way I can just roll out of bed and go. And when the little voice in my head says you should sleep in today, I can argue back that my bag is packed and I'm awake so I better just go.
I've recently started packing my gym bag the night before, therefore I am not scurrying around in the morning or using my lack of preparation as an excuse not to go. I throw the bag in the car, and its ready and waiting for me.
