Now, let's get to the nitty-gritty! What's stopping you from achieving your results? If you answered TIME, well then, I have news for you...you're NOT alone! You've got 3 kids, you've got 3 jobs, you don't know how to plan your 3 meals, you need 3 hands (because as we all know, 2 just aren't enough sometimes), and you just wish you had 3 minutes to yourself!! Trust me, I've been there and done that (okay, I only have one child, but I'm a single mom...that has its own challenges). I get it, but maybe I can make this a little simpler for you.
3 is a magical number, so we're going to work with it. Recently, I attended an event in Dallas where I was given the opportunity to workout with Tony Horton...that's right...the one, the only, P90X master...Tony! The workout was a blast, but he did a presentation called the "11 Laws of Health and Fitness" and I took a TON of notes. My handwriting is very small, kind of unibomberish, but the point is, I listened and I LOVED what I heard, so I'm going to share it with you each week.
So what did he say that made such an impression on me? It was the FIRST law, but it included only 3 things (works magically for me). Be creative, stay curious, live committed...in one word...VARIETY. If you WANT change, you have to be willing to find a way. Like you, there are others who struggle with finding the time. Some have MORE than 3 jobs, others have MORE than 3 kids, a few may only have 1 hand, BUT they are finding a way to make it work. You make appointments for your kids to see the doctor/dentist, you make appointments to get your hair/nails done, you bring your car in to get the oil changed, so why don't you make time for your workouts?
Law # 1 - VARIETY - THE SPICE OF FITNESS - MIX IT UP, CHANGE IT UP, TURN IT UP
#1 - BE CREATIVE - Find a workout that you will enjoy and make it your own. If you LOVE cardio, then why force yourself to do strength training? If you want to tone up, then doing cardio isn't going to cut it for you! If you want to see CONTINUED results, then you need to create diversity in your workouts that YOU will enjoy doing and make you WANT to show up every day! Increase your resistance, vary your reps, mix it up with cardio, resistance/weight, flexibility/yoga, core, add sports...be inventive!
# 2 - STAY CURIOUS - Are you intimidated to try something new? Why? What's holding you back? What would you do if you weren't afraid? You'd test it out, so DO that! The worst that happens if you attempt something new and don't like it is, you don't do it again. But here's the kicker...what happens if you LOVE it? You're going to do it again and again...you're going to see results! You'll form healthy habits!
# 3 - COMMIT - If you want results, you're going to have to allocate time to REACH your goal. Rome wasn't built in a day, but it WAS constructed because people showed up to get the job done!! There is no room for negotiation. Like Nike's slogan says...JUST DO IT!
PLAN a time that you'll work out. You put appointments on your calendar, right? Make your workout an appointment. Don't be late for it either!! Or do what I do, and set an alert on your cell phone. When the alarm goes off, it's time to get fit!!
Now, if you're saying...I STILL don't have enough time...I'm wondering...do you have 10 minutes? Then do something 3 times per day for 10 minutes (Beachbody sells 10 Minute Trainer which are 10 minute workouts) or 3 times per day for 20 minutes!! If you have time for television shows or using the computer, then you most certainly have time to exercise. It's a mindset. If you're not willing to THINK a different way, then you won't SEE changes!! Change your thinking by being creative, staying curious and committing...the magic of 3!!
