I think this is one of the biggest factors that holds people back from losing weight.
I get that. We live in a fast-paced society that operates on drive-thru restaurants and 5-minute roasts.
We pack our schedules so full that we barely have time to pee, let alone eat, where by the end of the day we are so spent from the last 12 hours of go go go that all we want to do is chill chill chill.
We also thrive on the mentality that we're supposed to be busy, active, engaged. We are supposed to be giving our all to the common good, so to actually say "no" to someone is considered sacrilege.
Admitting that we worked through our breaks has become a badge of honor, for that truly is an indicator that we are 'company men.' We are 'go getters.'
So, given this--are you too busy to workout? Will taking 45 minutes to hit the gym or plug in a workout DVD destroy your chances of making partner?
Check out this video to see what I have to say about that, and you might be mildly surprised to see what I think.
So remember, the next time you think about working out and hesitate because you have that big project to get done, or a million things on your 'to do' list, stop and take five deep breaths and tell yourself that you will be MUCH more effective if you take 45 minutes or an hour to devote to yourself. You will be more focused, confident, and better able to handle the challenges that come your way if you get your sweat on to your favorite tunes.
It's not about working hard, it's about working smart. It's about time management, life management.
