Wednesday Workout Tip: Schedule your workout
Work is exhausting. You get up, shower, dress, feed yourself and other family members if you have kiddies, pack lunches, and finally, run out the door hoping to catch the train/bus/magic carpet to work.
And when you get home at the end of the day all you want to do is flop on the couch (even if you’ve sat at a desk all day). Thus, getting in a workout is challenging when you work.
My advice? Plan, plan, plan. Schedule, schedule, schedule.
Schedule to do your workout at lunch. If that’s not possible, do your workout RIGHT when you arrive home at the end of the day. Don’t even think about it, just get your gym clothes on and go. It will eventually become routine and you will look forward to it (I promise).
What about dinner you say? Make meals ahead. Ask your partner to fill in. Ask your child (if old enough) to start helping out. If you have a baby or toddler, most gyms now offer babysitting services. Take the baby with you (either in one of those neat pouches or stroller). Eat later.
Whatever you do, schedule your workout. Make it a priority. Make yourself a priority. Health is something that you need to work at – so start working at it.
