If I had a £1 for every time I’ve heard this excuse id be richer than Elon Musk!
At the moment I’m doing around 35 PT sessions per week, and writing 1-2 articles per week for fitness magazines/websites. My weekly working hours are around 50 hours per week. I get up everyday at 5.45am and go to bed at around 10pm each evening.
Most evenings I don’t actually finish work until 9pm. So I get an hour at the end of the day to chill, watch Made in Chelsea and TOWIE (don’t judge!) Apart from an afternoon nap each day (30 mins) and Sunday afternoons I pretty much don’t stop all week.
I go to the gym 4 days per week and on Thursdays I have to get up at 4am in order to get my workout In before looking after my 1 year old son for the day.
What’s the point in telling us all of this Nick?
The point is that training is such an important part of my life…
That I am willing to fit it in regardless of my circumstances. The benefit it has on my mind, body and spirit far outweighs the effort and early morning sacrifices I have to make to fit it in.
So many people put their careers and lifestyle ahead of health and wellbeing. BUT without our health we having nothing!
It’s not actually a time issue its a motivational issue.
The effort/sacrifice involved doesn’t seem worth the effort so therefore you don’t do it.
For anybody struggling to get motivated, I challenge you to put your health and fitness at the top of your priority list for the next 3 months.
I can guarantee that if you do this, not only will you look better, but you’ll also feel better, have more energy, enjoy your work more, have more confidence, and attract many more positive situations into your life.
Ditch the time excuse forever and go make it happen
