Oh, how I had ideas of grandeur for this one. I imagined that I would get up early and go to the gym, shower there and be able to make it to work on time. Ha! That didn't quite happen.
Considering that I couldn't even manage to get up early to go to the gym while I was on break, I decided to scrap that idea and work with reality. The truth is, I'm not a big fan of getting up at the crack of dawn when it's below zero outside. I need to get to work a little bit early, but not that early.
In order for this morning routine to work, I have to do a lot of things the night before. But, if I can be organized the evening before, I can stumble through this routine in a zombie-like state without too many problems:
Wake Up (!)
Brush Teeth/Wash Face
Put one load of laundry in the washer (do not turn on)
Put lunch into work bag
Make green tea
Drive to work
Eat instant oatmeal at work
