The amount of time people put into making excuses as to why they don’t have time to workout blows my mind. I know, I know…we’re all super crazy ridiculously busy. Some may even say we “glorify” busy. But think…if you added up all the time you talked about working out AND all the time you felt guilty about not working out…you’d have time to workout.
Seriously. You plan to workout tomorrow. You get your stuff ready. Then tomorrow comes and the day gets away from you. You spend a few minutes trying to figure out how to make it work. Then you spend a few minutes berating yourself because you just won’t be able to make it work. Then you spend a few minutes feeling guilty for berating yourself. Then a few more minutes spinning around in your chair contemplating how guilty you’re feeling. You’ve literally just spent 10 minutes of your day contemplating your workout when you could have been working out.
Remember, workouts don’t have to take hours on end. In fact, a lot of current research indicates that a solid 20-minute high-intensity sweat sesh could be more beneficial to every day living than those extended low and slow workouts we all used to grind through back in the 90’s.
So, when you think you don’t have time to workout. You do. I know you do. Instead of putting the effort into all the guilt you feel for not working out and rearranging your schedule, just get off your ass and move your body.
Not sure what to do? No problemo. I do.
