At the risk of getting seriously flamed here let me pose this question to the group: With all of the stressors, responsibilities, etc, of work, family, home (chores, repairs, doing the bills, etc.) how do you guys / gals find the time / stamina/ whatever to get a workout in?
For example, my work week is anywhere between 50 to 80 hours a week. Add in an hour commute both ways, and about 25-40% travel, and I’m already beat. Throw in the usual cutting the grass, water heater broke, etc. and make sure I spend time with the kids and the wife there is little time left. I average about 5-6 hours a sleep / night, unless I travel, then its less.
I may be atypical, but what are your strategies to keep going forward, make sure you get a work out in, etc. with everything else in your life that you have to do?
By the way, I am looking for a discussion on specifics, and ways to plan, not the “make it a priority / if you want it bad enough you’ll do it/ you just don’t want it” commentary; TI agree in the statement, but it’s not real specific in how to achieve. For example, in college and when I was single, I had all the time in the world for myself and I could make the tings in my life a priority because it was all about me. However, now that I am older, Family and work are my priorities and IMO rightly so. This is more about time management strategies and ways to “fit it all in”.
