Fit exercise into your busy schedule? That’s as absurd as saying that there are eight days in a week!
First, you’ve never exercised before or engaged regularly in a sport; second, you’ve never been into the fitness crowd and have had meager time for such pursuits, and third, you’re far too busy to even think of exercise.
In other words, YOU’RE JUST NOT INTO IT.
Of course your friends talk about it and rave about the latest fitness craze, but you’ve seen it too often: some of them are on the “on-again-off-again” treadmill / stair master mania, and you wonder why they haven’t shred the fat that they’re desperately still trying to hide.
Seeing what your friends go through and not seeing any results, you cling to the notion that your total lack of interest is justified.
You’re not the least bit inclined to engage in these circus-like contortions or do those mindless freestyle strokes in the
water. That would only encroach into your already busy schedule of juggling family, home and career. These three combined – husband/children/work are your exercise.
Yup, we’ve got a problem.
That mindset is like a seething volcano that’s about to erupt. If you stubbornly cling to the notion that the “fat to trim” concept is merely a myth and a figment of the imagination of a handful of oddballs, your health could be going into “eruption mode” soon, like a restless volcano.
Have you looked at your body lately? Have you taken stock of your overall physical well-being?
Before tackling the idea of fitting exercise into your busy schedule, it might be better if we start with the concepts of self-assessment and then familiarize ourselves with the disease-prevention aspect of exercise.
Once you’ve accepted the fact that your body needs overhauling, and that exercise is good for your health – then we can talk about some of the ways that you can include exercise into your roller-coaster existence.
This ebook in your hands right now (or on your screen!) is your KEY to fitting exercise into your life. And rest assured, this ebook already assumes that you’re a busy person with a life to lead; and that’s why the tips in here are specifically designed to fit in with your busy lifestyle!
To keep things organized and simple, this ebook is broken down into five easy sections:
Section 1: Assessing Physical Damage
And Accepting the Importance of Exercise
Section 2: No Matter How Busy you Are, there are Ways you can Exercise
Section 3: Busy Traveler? You can Fit Exercise into your Trips
Section 4: Exercise Aids To Go
Section 5: Information / Resources for the Hurried and Harried
Read them in order, or if you wish, focus on the section that is most relevant to you right now. Regardless of how you
choose to read this ebook, you can be confident of one thing: once you apply the advice within these pages, your busy life will include something new and important: exercise!
