Good LORD is it beautiful in Las Vegas right now! It’s about 75 degrees and sunny. Can’t ask for much more than that. Well, A hot tub at my house would be nice, so I guess you can, but I’ll take it. I have a break from my personal training clients right now, so I thought I’d write a short post about obstacles to overcome in the journey of health and fitness. One obstacle in particular. This one, you can probably apply to many other aspects of life as well. Think of all the things that can get in the way of you not being in the best shape possible. Time, money, no good food choices, kids, work, your peers, your family, your girlfriend or boyfriend, your dog. The list goes on and on. Maybe it’s you. Not any of these other things. People tend to take the easy way out on these things, regardless of what it is. It takes discipline to go get a great body. That’s not a lie. But it’s easy to use excuses like time, which is my all time favorite excuse, because everyone has the same amount of hours in the day, as the reason for their shortcomings in whatever goal they are trying to aspire to. This may come off harsh, but maybe it’s you, who spent the last 20 minutes surfing the internet, stuck on facebook, when you could have gotten one of the best workouts of your life in. Maybe it’s you who could have been focusing on being productive, instead of arguing on how much time you don’t have to be productive. Don’t blame your dog. Don’t blame your kids. There are plenty of people who work two jobs, have three kids, and STILL find time to get a 20-40 minute workout in 3-4 times a week. If you are trying to reach your goals, they aren’t going to come with an easy way out.
