Does this sound familiar? 😉
There is ALWAYS room to squeeze a little fitness into your day. I know that the majority of us have pretty realistic excuses such as busy schedules, tight bank accounts, injuries, or bad weather. Well, I hate to break it to you….but I can find a way around just about all of those things!! Don’t make excuses, you are only hurting yourself. Instead, be determined to find a solution and make yourself PROUD!
Busy schedules always seem to get in the way! Luckily, there are a variety of circuit workouts that only take a few minutes. If you are having a hard time pushing yourself without a visual, I know of a great 24 minute (yes, that’s under a half hour, people!) that will whip you into shape. It’s a great way to get started, with a little extra motivation from the instructors. There are 3 levels and modifications, so no intimidation necessary. $30 bucks and you’re on your way…excuse free. Check it out.
Tight bank accounts are a stressor that can effect you in many ways. Can’t fork out the dough for a gym membership right now? Don’t have at home equipment? No biggie.There is no need to feel like you have to spend a bunch of money to get a decent workout. Actually, you don’t have to spend a dime! Well isn’t that peachy. 😉 There are plenty of body weight workouts that don’t require anything but YOU. So hop to it! Here are a few examples: href=”https://aspiringwellness.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/bodyweightworkout1.jpg”>

Injuries are a big bummer! They can hold you back from MANY things, which can lead to depression. Don’t let your injuries trap you. Take every measure to find something that can accommodate your needs! Talk about it. Let people know what is going on. You never know what advice the people in your life may have to offer. Find a professional if necessary and let them know how much staying fit means to you. Ask for suggestions on how you can safely stay active. And remember….no matter what you are doing or how slow you go, doing something is better than nothing!! Which leads me to my favorite quote….
Weather. Wait just a darn minute! That’s no excuse! Suck it up. Either get a little wet in the rain, bundle up in the cold, de-layer and stay hydrated in the heat, or choose from the above workouts for an inside sweat session during hurricanes and blizzards. Did I cover everything? 🙂
SO get out there and get your workout on everyone!! You’ll thank me later 🙂
Have a healthy day!!
PS. Have other excuses? Try me! I bet I can weasel my way around it.
