1. “I don’t have time.” Well none of us here are going to argue that you are, without question, a very busy woman. And like most women, you are probably juggling several tasks & responsibilities at once. But we want to remind you of something . . . somehow you have managed to fit a lot of things into your day & a lot of them are most likely for the benefit of others. So what are some of the things you can do to manage your time in such a way, that you can find 1 hour, even ½ hour, to take time for your own health & fitness? A few things that come to mind to help you out are doing some prep work the night before; tasks like kids lunches, grocery lists, sorting laundry, supper prep. Many of the small things add up to creating some substantial time in your day for YOU!

2. “I lose my motivation.” Hey, we all suffer from lack of motivation at times but the best approach is to keep doing it . . . force yourself to grab your gym bag, put on your shoes & get yourself out the door. The hardest part is getting there but once you are, you know you are going to nail your work out & feel absolutely pumped that you did it!

3. “Gym memberships are too expensive.” Okay this is a valid point, however there are ways around this. For one, a lot of gyms typically have specials/ sales on their memberships at the start of a new year. They want to get you in the door to make good on your New Year’s Resolution & so to sweeten the deal they often drop their prices or offer a limited time, “try before you buy” option. So take advantage of that. Secondly, why do your fitness goals have to rely on joining a gym? There are plenty of great ways to get into shape that don’t require you to go to a gym. Take a look out your window . . . that is a great place to start! Put on some running shoes & go for a walk or a bike ride. Ask a friend to join you so that it feels less like exercise & more like “quality time with a friend.” Another way to not lose your motivation is to do things & join activities that you ENJOY. There is no perfect or right formula for getting yourself into better shape. The best thing you can do is to be consistent with your commitment & the best guarantee that you will do that is to do the things that you like!
