Finding the time to workout is not easy. For may reasons. You’re tired, busy, have cramps, are starving, just ate, it’s too early, it’s too late, you just washed your hair, it’s freezing cold, it’s boiling hot, it’s happy hour, blah blah blah ‘enter every other excuse in the book.’
I use to be one of those excuse makers and then one of my really good friends, who always seemed to make it to the gym, shared her secret and it’s really quite simple: put workouts in your calendar just like you would a meeting and take it equally as seriously.
Now I schedule workouts four times per week (minimum) in my calendar and pretty much never miss. So why does this actually work? Number one, when you look at your calendar while making plans your gym time is blocked off so you don’t create scheduling conflicts. Number two, when you start to feel lazy AF and contemplate not going, BOOM! a calendar reminder pops up. And number three, you start taking workouts as seriously as you would anything else you put in your calendar.
The other trick that works: pay for a none refundable class in advance.
