A One Hour Workout is 4% of your day – No Excuses!!!

Carmel Valley San Diego Community | Amy Mewborn | Lorna JaneHow true!!! I am so guilty of this.  On days that I don’t teach or get up and go take a class immediately, I get busy in my computer – sitting on my bootie.   And despite my best intentions, I never get my own workout in.

Why????  I LOVE barre!  I own two studios and can choose the instructor that I want to take and the location I want to attend.  And since I chose my instructors – so I feel like I have some of the best – right???  So I should be jumping out of bed to run and take a class – right?  Oh, I wish!

You want to know my biggest roadblocks – Busyness and sheer lack of discipline!  I get busy in the details of my business, and sometimes lose sight of the fact that I am a better business owner when I take good care of myself!  I have more energy after my workout.  I’m more mentally focused.  I feel more accomplished, and less likely to get weighed down when something doesn’t go right.  So why don’t I make that my every morning routine?  I don’t know!

It’s one of the things I am really trying to examine in my own life!  As we go into the holidays, I have clients actually ramping up their workout schedule!  I LOVE that!  Maybe this is MY opportunity to make a promise to myself that I am going to either teach or take class a minimum of four days a week as well!

How about you – what are some of your excuses?  And what can you do to get past it through the holidays?  Comment and let me know – I’d love to hear your challenges and advice!
