Are you being consistent?
“In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”
It can be difficult for a busy executive or working parent to find time to work out with consistency, but this important for achieving fitness results. Having a workout plan will help you to achieve greater consistency.
Once you have decided on the type of exercise that you would like to engage in, you'll need to schedule it. Please be realistic when determining frequency and intensity. Create a workout schedule that involves at least a few minutes a day for a warm up, 20 minutes for a cardio activity and additional time for strength training and a cool down. I highly recommend writing down your schedule to solidify your commitment to your exercise plan.
