The past two weeks I've been working from home. This has made it really easy to work-out when I don't have meetings or I'm waiting on information to be pushed back to me. However, that's not reality. I will be returning to the office on Monday and I need to fit my exercising into reality. This morning, I decided to test drive going to the gym early in the morning to see if I could get my whole routine in, including shower, within my typical schedule.
Unfortunately, I felt a little rushed. Part of the reason was feeling like I was running against the clock not knowing how long everything would actually take. The other part was working out with my husband - at the end of the workout, I had to wait for him to finish. On a typical day, he wouldn't be working out with me, so I really need to ignore that part. I'm hoping I can manage the rushed feeling on a typical day.
The good news is I got in a really solid workout despite being horribly sore from yesterday's Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown workout (seriously, that workout is no joke). I also feel extraordinary knowing that my exercising is done for the day. I don't have to figure out how to squeeze it in. It's done.

Hopefully there's truth to working through the soreness because my body screams every time I move. We'll see tomorrow! In the meantime...
