It's the New Year and you are trying to get motivated to exercise and become healthier. You have the blahs however. Why can't you seem to make time for the gym?

You work, you have kids, and you have a busy schedule. Somewhere in there you need to make time for you and your well being. How do you accomplish that one? I have some great tips right here for overcoming these obstacles.


When To Train:

    If you are not an early morning person, pack a bag of workout gear and put it in your car. This way you don't have to go home after work and you will have a better chance of making to the gym on your way home. Once you are there it will be easier to find the motivation to exercise.

The First Year:

    The first year of training is the most exciting because this is the time when we make the most and fastest gains. After that it takes intensity and consistency to make gains. Once you reach your goal, it is relatively easy to maintain a physique weight training only two days per week. That is, if your diet is good. I would recommend a couple of days of cardio work as well.

Nutrition Ideas:

    As far as nutrition goes, you will have to start carrying food around with you. Always make sure you have water available. Keep protein bars in the car or at work. You will have to prepare food in advance for meals you will need throughout the day. This will keep you away from fast food.

    If you have to eat out, then make healthier choices - You can always find something healthy on most menus these days. Most restaurants have a chicken, rice and vegetable meal.
