1. I don’t have enough time?
Huh? How is this even possible? This may perhaps be the worst excuse of all, as it tends to be the easiest cop out to resort to. An article from ubergizmo.com states that Americans spend an average of 4.7 hours a day on their mobile devices. No longer can we say that we do not have enough time in our day. The solution goes back to prioritizing your time in an efficient manner.
2. Morning vs. Evening.
Most of us in the working class start out our shifts in the morning and head home around 5:00 PM. For those individuals struggling to maintain the discipline to stick with a consistent regiment, should consider working out in the mornings instead. The main reason is because so many variables can disrupt the latter part of our day. For instance, your job may require you to work late hours or your buddies may want to grab a drink after work down at the local bar. Moreover, these distractions tend to take precedence over any pre-planned workout. To mitigate this potential issue, waking up an hour earlier may help you to accomplish fulfilling your workout sessions.
3. I’m too tired.
At some point you have to realize that you cannot keep using this lame excuse. This usually means that you didn’t get enough sleep the night before due to various distractions. Perhaps you stayed out too late partying, watched Netflix all night, or played Call of Duty all night. Either way, you cannot continue to use this excuse and you need to prioritize getting sufficient rest. From my personal experience, sleeping less than 5 hours a night drastically decreases the likelihood of you attending the gym or any other fitness venue. Get more rest and this should help to energize you.
In conclusion, if you cut back on posting to Facebook and Instagram, prioritize a practical workout schedule, and get sufficient rest, you will be one step closer to fulfilling your health and fitness goals!
