I Don't Have Time for That!

I used to be the biggest offender of the most classic excuse for not working out or eating healthy... "I'm too busy/I don't have time"

Whether it was because I was a full-time college student (in hindsight I was NOT busy in college and could've been an IFBB pro by now if I would've used all that extra time on my hands for something productive) or because I graduated college and became a full-time working woman, I let that excuse get in my way quite frequently. 

Packing a healthy lunch in the morning? No time, I'm too "on the go"! Dedicating an hour to my health every night for the gym? Nah, I had a rough day at work. Getting up an hour early to get my workout done and out of the way before the day begins? Abso-fricken-lutely out of the question.

However, what I've come to realize is that nobody has time..  people MAKE time. And if your health is a priority to you (which it very well should be), you should want to make time for it. 

I once asked a friend to do a workout program with me that I was really excited about. She said she was too busy. When I think about all the time she spends on social media, I have a hard time believing that. When people at work look down on me for working out as if it means my life is somehow less complex and busy than theirs, I have a bit of a problem with that. Especially when the next day they're talking about a show they can't get enough of on Netflix. I'm not saying you shouldn't have any down time, or you shouldn't be allowed to watch Netflix.. but when a lack of time is your excuse for not taking an interest in your health, I stop taking you seriously. As cliche as it sounds, we all have the same 24 hours in the day, it's how we use them that differentiates us. Our bodies were not made to be as sedentary as our culture has lead us to believe. 

Get up and move, really move, for an hour a day! Your body will love you and thank you (for years to come)
