If you find yourself not having enough time to exercise week after week and you think that 20-30 minutes won’t make a difference, reconsider your position!
The first thing I’ll say is…
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail!
Try to find the time to plan a workout. I suggest going to be earlier and getting up earlier – even by 45 minutes – is enough time to get a workout in. On days when you can’t make that happen, consider little “spurts” of activity – 10-15 minutes twice a day. No this won’t get you ready for a marathon, but it could elevate your mood, make you feel energized, and keep you from craving your favorite junky foods and beverages.
Bottom line, grab a pedometer and try to reach 10,000 steps every day. Try to find wiggle room in your calendar. Make it fun. I always encourage people to get more involved in a sport like a local kickball, softball, swimming, or running club. You’ll find they have ones for beginners and the more you can make exercise like “play” the more you will do it.
If you really aren’t willing to exchange TV for exercise, consider a stationary bike at home. Just take action and do it now!
