Tuesday’s Trainer Tips: Making Time
“I don’t have time to workout” is the adult version of “the dog ate my homework.” It is interesting that you can find time to do any activity that you want to do such as: watch TV, go out to eat, browse the web, go shopping or do completely nothing! Wait, that’s it. It’s because you want to. Let’s take the same approach to that body that you “want.” Notice I used quotation marks around want. How bad do you want it? How hard are you willing to work for it? How much time are you willing to put into getting it? If you’ve been working this hard because of a contest that helped push yourself to drop weight or get fit, then why would that motivation stop simply because the contest is near its end?
Making the time for yourself to become, or stay, fit and healthy is one that will always give you a satisfying return on your investment. If you are done with feeling unhealthy and are ready to commit to yourself in achieving those fitness goals you’ve talked about for years, then today should be the first day that you begin to embark on this journey. With your hard work, I can assure that you will attain pride in yourself, along with a sense of accomplishment, something that no one can take away from you. Make changes in your eating habits, be patient to see your results, follow a structured program designed for you to achieve said results and hold yourself accountable to commit to sometime of your week at the gym, and you my friend, will be well on your way to seeing the pounds come off and most importantly stay off.
