I’m too busy for exercise. That’s the line
I used to hear when I was a personal trainer
I’d love to work out today but I’m too busy; got
too much to do. Strapped for time.
I can relate with this excuse. It’s an insidious one.
It creeps up on you, gets a hold of you to miss a
day or two – and pretty soon a week, a month, a
year – even several years go by.
Meanwhile, this entity called ‘your body’ is rusting
out from lack of use. You’re getting unhealthier by
the moment, but you think it’s okay because you’re
It’s not a good idea to make this excuse. And believe me,
I must be on guard on this topic, too. Especially this month
Right now I’m preparing for three big seminars. Not only
that but I write three monthly newsletters, make two monthly
CDs, coach over 100 people, write a couple daily emails – and so on.
Yesterday I was up early and moving. Had so much to
do. Got a lot done – but there’s always more – and when
it was time to train, I thought about taking the day off. But I
didn’t. I fought off the temptation and as a result, got
MORE done, not less.
For every 15 minutes you spend following my fitness program
you get a couple hours of increased productivity in return. Sometimes
even more. That’s why I don’t like to miss. That’s why I like to
terminate any excuse my mind can manufacture.
Sometimes we think we’re doing the right thing when we blow
off training for some other purpose, but there is rarely ever
a good reason. And you’re made aware of this truth when your
workout is over and you feel the positive results of taking a
minute for yourself. Negative stress gone. Endorphins rushing
throughout your body. Good feelings overall.
I say ‘Let the rest of the world wait.’ When it’s time for YOU – it’s time
for YOU. Stop making everyone else more important than your-
self. You’re important, too. And you come first.
