I hear you there. The excuses are the real killer. Life get's busy. We have to earn a living, we have to be attentive to our families and we have to rest. All to often, we find no time for exercise in all of it.
I think the problem is that we fail to recognize how important our bodies are in the pursuit of the things that really matter to us. Not only are our bodies our primary tool as hunters, but they are the platform we use to launch or intellect and spirit in everyday life. Not only are we more effective hunters when our bodies are strong and well conditioned but we are better workers and family members as well.
One of the best ways to combat excuse syndrome is to distill fitness down to its most basic elements. Liberate yourself from the need for gym memberships, specialized equipment, trainers or any other extra BS. Make it about a battle between your body and gravity. You talked about walking Deebz. Awesome! Strive to walk for 20 minutes every day. 20 minutes! You may not have time to run to the gym, but I bet you have an open spot in your bedroom or office where you can do 10 minutes of pushups, squats and situps. 10 minutes!
I'm not trying to tough talk you. I'm actually just giving you permission to do something basic and believe that it can make an impact.Good luck!
