Gym Clothes To-Go

Good morning friends :)

I woke up this morning and did the usual routine- turned the coffee pot on within 2 minutes of waking up. Priorities.

I then went to grab the small pot I make oatmeal in and couldn’t find it. I panicked and thought “ugh, should I just grab something on my way in to work?”- NO. No no no no no.

So, what did I do? Grabbed the frying pan and made oatmeal in it. lol

oatmeal this am

I’m loving this oatmeal combo, I think you guys can tell. I can’t believe there was a time I didn’t like oatmeal. I’m happy I played around with it and figured out exactly how I like it- I mean, love it :)

So, let’s talk about yesterday’s plan to workout… it didn’t happen :(

Remember I got stuck in traffic coming in yesterday morning? I ended up staying late at work and crashing after dinner when I got home last night. This morning, I was so upset that I didn’t get a workout in yesterday. So what did I do?

gym clothes ready

I grabbed my gym clothes and threw them on the couch so that I wouldn’t forget them this morning. The plan is to go immediately after work- no excuses. I have everything I need so I don’t have to stop at home first.

Does anyone else do this? Honestly, I would rather go in the morning because I know it’s harder to go after a long day at work. However, I think having my clothes on me will help me because I will feel bad if I don’t put them to use.

What do you do to make sure you fit your workout in? I hope my plan is a success today. I will definitely put a picture up on instagram (@CoffeeLoveHealthJourney) this evening so you guys can hold me accountable ;)

Have a great day!! xoxo


  1. I always always bring my gym clothes to work so I can go straight after. If I have to go home first to get my clothes, I know for sure I will talk myself out of going!

    • You are a genius! I think I’m going to try this. I work in DC and with spring around the corner, I think I would love to go on some runs in the city. If I change here, I can go straight outside after work and start my workout. Thank you for the great tip! :)

  2. Clearly you know how to make do when you really want to eat/do something, right??

    • lol Tamara I am trying, but it’s been so hard. I ended up spending many longer hours at work in the evening than I expected :( But I am going to try SUPER hard to get everything I need done in a 24-hour period, done! Imagine me with children.. oh man lol

  3. I make sure I bring my clothes with me to work. A few minutes before I leave I’ll change, that way I’m all set to hit the gym and complete my workout. I prefer to get dressed at work that way I’m not going through the stress of changing at the gym with all the other folks just getting off work.

    • Kiesha I love your idea. Another reader mentioned this above. You guys are such geniuses. I don’t know why I didn’t realize this sooner. Especially changing AT work.. that will definitely keep me motivated to move and without any excuses to not get a workout in. I mentioned I work in DC and with Spring weather around the corner, I hope to change at work and go straight outside to run in the city :)

  4. Sometimes I sleep in workout clothes :) I swear it helps.

  5. I almost have to work out first thing in the morning or right after work- if I even go home and relax, it’s just not going to happen :-)

  6. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out
    your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the
    knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a
    look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, excellent blog!
