Did you commit to getting fit this year? One way to help stick with your new plan is to get organized.
I attend a 6:00 am fitness boot-camp three days a week, quite the challenge for this night owl. Organizing my workout gear the night before means I can keep my head on the pillow till the last-minute. I arrange my workout clothes next to the bed, stacked in the order I’ll put them on. This lets me dress in the dark without waking my husband who is a light sleeper.
In the car, I’ve staged the rest of my gear: an exercise mat, gloves since we spend part of the time outdoors year round and a towel. I also have tissue on hand and a water bottle. I used to use a tote bag, but I found the bag too short for my exercise mat. Instead I use a lightweight, collapsible laundry hamper. It keeps the mat contained and upright and allows me to see everything I need.
If you’ve made the commitment to get fit, congratulations! Regular exercise adds years to your life, and improves the quality of your overall health. Taking a few minutes now to get organized will make it that much easier to get moving.
