One of the biggest excuses I hear about not working out is I don’t have time.
Updated: Jun 19
This is generally a fallacy. In life, if we want something bad enough, we WILL make time for it.
This includes getting healthier and working out. Now, I’m not saying it’s always easy, but if you truly examine your life, there are periods of time that you can get some quick exercise in
The great thing is that exercise throughout the day is cumulative. You don’t have to simply “GO TO THE GYM” for an hour and that’s it. If you work at a desk, but get an hour lunch break make simple choices like meal prepping and eating a quick healthier lunch such as rice, chicken and a vegetable, but then take a 20 minute walk for cardio. Every step counts. You can do body squats when others are taking a smoke break. These simple things can make life easier and more efficient. Hey, if they get a smoke break, you should too even if you have to hold an unlit cigarette in your hand when you are exercising. Let them try to fire you for it!
If you don’t have time for the gym, buy some adjustable weights and hide them beside your couch. If you are watching a TV program, instead of watching the commercials get a set of curls or overhead extensions in. No one really watches the commercials anyway and we kind of zone out. Body Squats and Burpees can also be added in during the commercials, or Push Ups or many other exercises. I can help you with this, just contact me.
Telling yourself you don’t have time is a lie. You CAN make time if you want to change your life. Get up 5 minutes earlier and get in 3 sets of Sit Ups before you get ready for work. You get my point. Being fit is a commitment. It will not happen over night, and especially if you have time constraints, but you CAN make it happen! Make time for your health!
