"I Have No Time to Workout"


"I have no time to workout", is a sentence you hear rather often. But, you see, you do have the time.

Allow me to break it down for you:

There are 24 hours in a day.

You only need 6 hours of sleep in order to function properly.

You work 8 hours per day.

You spend approximately 30 minutes getting ready for work.

You spend around 75 minutes per day eating.

You spend an hour per day commuting.

This leaves you with 7.25 hours of time to do everything else.

"... but I have kids!", "... but I have to clean!", "... but I have to cook!", "... but I have yard work!" These are all valid statements, but if you are smart with your time, you can get it all done and still have time to exercise! It's all about time management. All it takes is a little planning and preparation to be efficient.

If you have kids, do an activity with them. Go for a walk. Take them to the park. Play games outside.

Cleaning your house is a physical activity in itself. Try timing yourself to see how quick you can clean the house. It will increase your heart rate and seem more like a workout than a chore. The same goes for yard work.

Instead of cooking everyday, meal prep twice a week: once on Sunday and again on Wednesday. You'll be set for the entire week, but only have to cook two times instead of 7+. Yay for healthy meals and more time!

Make your health a priority and create time. Realize that you don't need a gym in order to be active. Moving your body can be done anywhere! Check out some of my at-home and outdoor workouts on my Facebook and Instagram pages.

You are only given one body for your entire life, so why wouldn't you treat your body well and keep it healthy? What you eat and how much you move is completely under YOUR control. No excuses! Get movin'!

XOXO
