Make the Time

This may not be the best post to begin with after being away for a while, but hey we all deal with "balancing time". Yeah, we're all confronted with it from time to time:)  no pun intended there!

So, today I'm going to share with you 4 "how to" steps to make time to get your exercise in. We're not going to play these famous cards - don't have time, going to do it later, I'll do it tomorrow; lame, lame and not working for you. 

First, we can all agree on two things - exercise is very important, and no one can do it for you.

Finding time to exercise isn't as difficult as we make it out to be - why? We just need to honestly  answer a few questions, and don't get hang - up about what you've read about morning being the best time to burn the most calories etc.  That statement isn't really accurate and I have proven it.

We need to address the 3 questions below:
  1. Best time of the day for you to exercise?
  2. How much time do you have to exercise?
  3. What type of exercise do you enjoy?
  4. What will this do for you?

Answers:
  1. Pick  morning, noon or evening.
  2. Pick a realistic time - Start low, and go for 20-30 min, and yes, you can have an amazing workout within that time frame.
  3. Decide on the type of exercise you like or love and commit to it.
  4. Benefits - health increase, sleep better, lose fat, tone, and or build self confidence.
Listen, once you stop and be honest with yourself you will find that carving out the time is easy and you only need to commit to it for 3-5 times a week. That's between 60-100 minutes per week; time definitely well spent...make that invested.

To your health.
