No time or motivation? News flash- ME EITHER!


As someone who wakes up at 5:30am every day to exercise for 40-75 min, I am baffled by how many people tell me that I am “lucky” that I have “some much time” to run. They are usually followed by, “I wish I had time to run”

You wish you “had time”

I have a full time career (40+ hours a week), I own my own business (additional 30+ hours a week). I am a homeowner, wife, dog owner, aunt, daughter, friend, sister, etc.

I don’t have time; I make time.

You need to re-prioritized how you are spending your time.  It’s not always fun, but it’s a requirement to be successful. 

This is how America spend’s free time:

Maybe it’s time you make a pie chart of what YOU are doing all day. Is every waking hour of every single day jam packed? Doubtful. You are reading this aren’t you? 😉

Here is a piechart of my time in one week:

“I wish I was as motivated as you”

I am the LEAST motivated person I know. Can someone please tell me what reason I have to be motivated?

I don’t have any weight to lose, I’ve ran 14 marathons the past 3 years...

I have EVERY reason to kick back and relax!

Motivation is B.S. It’s temporary. I would never exercise if I only did it when I was “motivated”. 

You need to be dedicated & disciplined. That is all.

Next time you think you are not motivated & you don’t have time…instead try saying:

I am not dedicated and disciplined, and I am not making this a priority.

Thats is the reality of the situation 🙂
