“I wish I could get in shape. I just have no time.” — most people reading this.
What’s your excuse for not working out?
When you want something bad enough, you’ll do it. If you don’t want it bad enough, you’ll think of an excuse.
The good news is that we’re all guilty of making excuses. You’re not alone. Excuses are common. The even better news is that you can easily squeeze fitness into your life without any radical changes. You don’t have to track calories or weigh your food. That’s lame.
I’m guessing that as a parent, entrepreneur, or just overall busy person, you want to lose a few pounds or have more energy. That’s cool and easily attainable.
I’ve been doing a TON of writing, research, and well application on fitness lately. I wanted to share my results with you to help you squeeze a little fitness into your life.
That’s right. You don’t have to worry about spending $50 on a gym membership or on some new fancy shoes that are supposed to make you run faster. The world is your gym. You can train in your living room or at the park. You don’t have to wait until you find a gym membership. You don’t have to drive anywhere to train.
You can try to do as many pushups as possible during commercials. You can walk more often instead of driving to the corner store. You get the point. It’s not rocket science. I’m just suggesting that you treat this world as your gym.
Keep it simple in terms of training. Instead of debating technique and different workouts at the beginning, just go for a run or bust out as many pushups as you can. If you drop down and do as many pushups as you can right now, you’ll be ahead of your friends that are still shopping around for a gym membership.
As a rookie, you don’t have to worry about meal timing or sets and reps. Just get out there and do anything. Any physical activity beats doing nothing and complaining about being out of shape.
Eating right is key. You already know this. We all know this. We all know that we should be eating better. So how do you eat better? I’m going to share tricks that I’ve shared with my friends that are super busy but want to get in shape:
I love my pizza, poutine, beer, and vodka. I could never cut these all out. Why would I even want to try? I used to think that dieting was about eating well 100% of the time. Then I read The 4-Hour Body and Tim Ferriss stressed the idea of picking one day a week where you pig out. This works wonders for your soul. Instead of having a slice here and there, you can try to save it all up for one day. On this day, you snap. You eat whatever you want. You make yourself sick. One day only. The rest of the week you go back to eating normally. Simple enough.
