Daily Life/No Time to Workout…UGH!

Standard

Struggles, commitments, obligations, deadlines, everyday life, call it what you will, we all have them. Sometimes it seems that there is never enough time to workout, or any for that matter. Being a Personal Trainer, parent, business owner, husband and all of the other labels that go with that, I face this myself.

Life can and does become hectic at times. It is very easy to think that nobody else could possibly have the difficult issues that face us everyday. The truth is we all do, we just handle them differently. Some people prioritize better, ask for help, or just push through hoping that it will all fall into place.

When you feel overwhelmed, like you cannot possibly take on anything else, stop and give yourself a pat on the back. To have made it as far as we do takes an enormous amount of energy; mentally, spiritually and physically.

Set aside or just take a couple of minutes each day to connect with yourself, your friends, and your loved ones. Squeeze in a few minutes of exercise to keep your body fit and healthy enough to continue to give your 110% at everything that is thrown at you. The more we let ourselves go, the harder it is to bounce back.

Fitness comes in many forms, and not all of it is physical. No matter what you choose to make your foundation, make sure you inspect it and keep it strong.

In fitness, Bob

Recipe for Exercise

Standard

If you took some commitment, added in some perseverance and sweat, a dash of willingness, and then tossed it gently with your favorite goals, would you be happy with the outcome?

I would like your feedback on exercise. Don’t stop reading yet, I’m not asking for money. I know everyone in the blogging world puts their thoughts and/or ideas out to share, or to invoke an interest. That is what this is for me. This will take no more time than reading and replicating a recipe, so think of this as your recipe for exercise. As with all good recipes, please share this with your friends or reblog if you wish. Not everyone exercises, I get that. If you fall into that category,  please send me your families most guarded recipe. (Lasagna, cookies, pie, soup, you get the picture:)

Being relatively new to blogging and writing exercise prescriptions, I am looking for advice from my fellow bloggers and Facebook followers. What would your ideal recipe for exercise be? A recipe that you would make again, or commit yourself to. I have written a list of questions for my curiosity, but am also open to your personal creativity as well. I will be most grateful for your time and input.

Remember, this does not have to involve a gym or kitchen, you can exercise and cook outside. Just be careful to leave a safety zone around the grill. Of course I’m kidding, but seriously, be safe.

What do you do for exercise? Do you have a favorite routine or piece of equipment that you prefer? Is there an exercise or piece of equipment that you have always wanted to learn but for whatever reason have not? If you hired a Personal Trainer, what would you expect from him/her? Would you incorporate a guideline for your nutrition/eating habits? Would you dedicate a certain amount of time to working out, and if so how often? If you became comfortable with an exercise, would you be willing to try something different? You stayed with me this far, you might as well let me know what you think. Go ahead, I can take it.

Thank you, Bob
