Working Hard

When it comes to working out, I work hard. I make sure I train 5 days a week. I make sure my training sessions have purpose. Sure some days I might only have 20 minutes, but it doesn't stop me. The thing I can't stand the most, is when people tell me their too busy to workout. Too busy? It really isn't an excuse, I'm sure those same people have time to watch TV at night or in the middle of the day. It's all a matter of your priorities.

Everytime someone asks me what I do, I stupidly reply that I own a gym. This apparently gives them free rights to ask me what the best exercise is for a flatter stomach, a firmer butt, or less jiggly arms. I politely respond and by the time I'm finished with my second sentence, they either sigh because I've told them something they don't want to hear, or they tell me they don't have the time.

What is it with not having the time? Wake up earlier, go on your lunch break, stop off at the gym on your way home from work, I don't care what it is, something is always better than nothing. And, NO, tomorrow is not the best time to start, today IS. Everyone seems to have time to go to happy hour, to go shopping, to take a long lunch, and again time to watch TV. So if you have the free time to do these things, find time, make time to workout. It's good for your health and it relays a good message to your kids.

You can't complain about wanting/needing to do this that and the other thing as it directly relates to your physical appearance if you won't make the time to workout.

Right on!

You should preface your response by saying "If you're looking for a fast and easy answer (to losing fat), it doesn't exist. Anyone who tells you it does exist is a liar and a thief. It all takes discipline and commitment. Now if that doesn't scare you, now I WILL tell you what you can do"
