The hardest part about your workout is GETTING there. That’s why we’re taking it to the VLOG and giving you our top 3 tips to get you out the door and into the gym dressed, well fed and on time.
1. Prep the night before. If you have an early morning, planning ahead is essential. Pick out your workout outfit and pack your bag with everything you’ll need for the day. This way you can jet out the door with ease.
2. Make your food grab ‘n’ go. Plan your meals ahead, especially breakfast. If you know you have a tough workout ahead of you, prep your food the night before. This way you won’t scarf down the first thing you see or worse, skip breakfast entirely. Our favorite quick trick: 1/2 a cup of plain rolled oats, a scoop of protein powder and a scoop of natural peanut butter. It’s the perfect combination of carbs, protein and fat to get you energized for your workout. Have all the ingredients mixed in a bowl the night before. Add water, microwave for a minute and wala! If you’re really strapped for time, use Tupperware so you can pop the lid on and take it to go.
3. Say NO to the snooze. The more you hit thE snooze button in the morning, the less time you’re giving yourself. Get out of bed, wash your face and brush your teeth. We promise you’ll feel better, you’ll be more motivated to get up and get going and you won’t be rushing to make up for the time you spent in the sack. Another way to make sure you’re out the door in time? Set mini alarms for yourself so you know if you’re on track with your morning schedule.
