Prioritizing your Schedule for a Better Body

by : Zach Hunt

Waking up every day to exercise can be very challenging. Often times people skip workouts completely as their schedule does not allow for any workout time. Here's a tip that will help you fit in that workout no matter the day.

I hope so, because here it is.

It's a little strategy that can very much help you or anyone to make sure that you get your physical activity in every day. What is it?

Simply put you have to schedule your workouts into your day just like it was a business meeting or a proposal or anything else that is mandatory in your life.

If you just go through the day you will never find the time for your workout or exercise session. You have to make the time, just like you would with any other important activity. Even if it's just a quick exercise session using only your bodyweight.

Stephen Covey has a quote that demonstrates this quite nicely: "The Key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities."

Just like with anything in life if it is important enough to you, you will find a way to fit it in your daily life, no matter what you think your current schedule is like!

This is perhaps the most important concept for dramatic results. It's the first base to weight loss. Just getting your workouts into your overall fitness plan.

Without those scheduled workouts planned into your weekly schedule, there's a fairly high change that you will not do them at all.

You'll just go through each day waiting for that "perfect" opportunity for your workout, which seems to never come your way.

It's then 10 PM, and you still haven't gotten your workout in. So you just decide to put it off until "tomorrow", however, we all know that "tomorrow" is never "today".

So this cycle of tomorrows never ceases and you stay the same.

Break this pattern of insanity and start today by scheduling your workouts into your schedule as mandatory appointments. And not just the exercise, whether it's the food prep, meal planning, cooking dinner, making your whole week of meat, cutting up veggies, or any other activity that will help progress you along your quest for fitness.

Put these events along with your exercise into your weekly calendar. Then plan weach week at the beginning of the week so you schedule your workouts as priorities above all other tasks.

If you need to start by clearing out all the garbage (junk food) in your pantry, then start with that.
