Amy, busy mom of 4 Finding time to work hard

Moving is important.  We get that.  Exercise is moving, but some of us have the busiest lives in the world, and there is sometimes not enough time, what in the world can we do?  Well here are five shots at you to try and let you have some found time, or reconsider the order of your day.

5 Ways to Fit Exercise into your life.

#1.  Wake up 30 minutes earlier than you do right now.

Holy moly!!!  Impossible.  Improbable.  NO WAY!!!!!  I’m sure if you like to sleep until the last possible second in the morning and especially if you have a spicy love affair with the snooze button every time your alarm goes off, then this task might seem impossible.  But there are a host of reasons that waking up a bit early, and getting a quick High Intensity Workout in will make the rest of your day absolutely awesome.    You will get an endorphin spike that will leave you feeling great for the rest of the day.  You will get it out of the way so that the rest of your day you know you are already taking steps to feeling better.  More often it’s an easier time to schedule that will not let after work duties get in the way.  These are all great along with the short term metabolic boost.   These are all great reasons to “Rise and Grind”

#2  Find a workout buddy.

Workout buddies are awesome, so long as they do not become socialization buddies.  Use your buddy to help hold you accountable, to motivate you, to inspire you, to pick you up if you need a ride, and even to complain to.  Some studies have shown that having a workout buddy means you are 85 Percent more likely to stick with a program.  So find your BFF for Working Out!!!

#3  Immerse yourself in the benefits of Exercise.

Subscribe to blogs, journals, blog casts, etc.  Magazines if necessary.  Human minds are crazy wonderful things. If you read an hour or two a day about the benefits of exercise, you will start to assimilate the mindset and suddenly start reorganizing your day around training.  Education is a truly wonderful thing.

#4   Stop Watching America’s Got Talent.

The average american watches 5 hours of Television per day.   I’m not sure I need to write anything else on this.  Fit in 30-90 minutes for training.

#5  Join Crossfit Williamsville  (or any other group fitness, likeminded group of honest and encouraging individuals)    Not only are you more likely to succeed in a group environment.  You will also be helped, cheered, carried, inspired, and ultimately feel like you belong, when you find a Gym full of people who will not judge you but instead will help you become the best you can possibly become.  Once surrounded by this kind of environment, it has been my experience that it is often more difficult to get people to take a rest day, than to not workout.
