Does this story sound familiar to you: You tell yourself that you're going to workout, but other things come up. So you tell yourself you'll do it tomorrow. Then tomorrow comes around. That doesn't quite work out so you tell yourself once again that you'll do it tomorrow.
Then tomorrow turns into a few weeks. Then months. Then you come to the realization: you don't have time to workout.
As a fitness coach, time is arguably the number one problem I hear when it comes to working out. However a lot of the time, we use that "time problem" as an excuse.
I was told a few years ago by a mentor that we make time for the things that we prioritize. Whatever we consider as valuable, we will make the time for it during the week. Doesn't matter how much time, but we will make sure that we invest some time into the things we prioritize.
So a question we need to really ask ourselves is this: do we really not have the time to workout, or are we just saying we don't have time so we don't have to workout?
Look, I get it. Working out is not easy. It requires a commitment. But so does spending time with your family or friends, or your faith, or your career, or developing a skill. They require a commitment from you. And if working out, if your health and wellness is important to you, you can make the commitment.
It doesn't have to be 6 days a week in the gym for an hour. It could be 3 times a week for 20 minutes while you're watching your favorite show right from your comfy and cozy home. We find a way to make it work.
As with anything we don't have to do it alone. You have those around you as your support group. Or a coach (now where can you find a coach...). It all starts with dropping any and all excuses and if you want it, make the time for it!
