O’Dark Thirty

Time: It never seems to be on anyone’s side.

“I don’t have time to workout. You don’t understand how busy I am”

Trut12246904_10208532177170095_2376940590055972353_nh: Everyone is busy. You are no more busy than anyone else. Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “It’s not a priority” because that’s the truth. <— Ouch. 🙈

I’m not special and I don’t have any super powers or extra hours in my day. Here is what helps me fit in workouts with a busy schedule:

–> Be selfish with your time before anyone is awake. That might mean sacrificing some sleep. I promise losing 30 minutes of sleep to do a workout will actually make you feel more energized throughout the day.
–> Put yourself on your own calendar. If you don’t plan a time to do it, your day will run you over.
–> Push yourself when you don’t want to. If you wait to feel like working out, you’ll be waiting a long time. You can’t feel yourself into an action but you can act your way into a feeling.
–> Find a workout accountability partner that you can text/call that will push you through your excuses.

Just do it. <— Simple advice but completely spot on!
