I hope you had a good Sunday. I forgot to talk about one other reason you might not be sticking to your workout. “You’re trying to do a lot”. I’ll give an example because this one’s hard to explain. Two friends at a New Years Eve party make a resolution to workout more. Person A and Person B both lead busy lives, but both are determined to fulfil their new years resolutions. Person A wants to reach their goal but, can only workout 20 minutes a day. Person B doesn’t consider 20 minutes a day a proper workout and sticks to what they know as “working out”.
Person A works out every month, five days a week for twenty minutes. Person B on the other hand, gets a window to “properly” work out every couple of weeks or sadly, sometimes it’s every couple of months. Who do you think did better at the end of the year? Why?
I’m not saying compromise, but I am saying, start somewhere. This wasn’t a specific example, but I started out like person A. When you look for those gaps in your schedule, you’ll find them, and before you know it, 20 minutes becomes 30, and five days becomes seven because (while I know you should rest), you found ten extra minutes in your week and you decided to squeeze in an exercise or two. The moral is do what you can, when you can.
As always, thank you for reading and I’ll catch you next Sunday for Intellectual Wellness. If you’re wondering what that is, check out my last post for Intellectual Wellness, What the fuck is Intellectual Wellness?
