Time


The number one excuse I hear for why people don’t workout?  You guessed it.  They don’t have time.  I have to disagree with that statement.  Everyone has time.  We each get 24 hours a day.  It’s how you spend that time that is up to you.  Many people have busy schedules, multiple jobs, children and other obligations but still find time to exercise.  It’s often the people that tell me they don’t have time who can also tell me about the three hours of television they watched the night before and recall all the glorious moments of “The Bachelor” or the entire HDTV line up.  Sure, you now know what not to do if you want a lasting relationship or want to fix up your house…but will you be around to enjoy those things?  I’m not saying give up television or reading or whatever hobby you have.  We all need time to relax.  But make exercise a priority.  Just 30 minutes a day.  I guarantee you will feel better, have more energy and not lose any sleep over missing an episode of “Man versus Food”.  If so, you can always record it on the DVR.  Or better yet, if you have exercise equipment such as a stepper, treadmill or elliptical at home, do it while you are watching tv or playing on your ipad or kindle.  Or just walk in place or dance while you are watching.  Sounds silly but it will do the trick!  Yes, it may take a little shuffling to work a trip to the gym or a bike ride into your schedule, but I promise you it will be worth it!  I’ve seen this saying a lot lately and it is so true; A year from now you will wish you had started today.  What are you waiting for?  Make the time for yourself.  Make your health a priority.  Get up, get started and get moving!! Time doesn’t wait for anyone so why would you wait for time to take care of you?
